Prospectus Ready for AMERISTAMP EXPO 2010

Also available in pdf format

Prospectus and entry forms are now available for APS AMERISTAMP EXPO 2010. The annual winter show of the American Philatelic Society will take place at the Riverside Convention Center, 3443 Orange Street, in Riverside, California, February 19–21, 2010. The deadline for the receipt of completed entry forms and fees is November 1, 2009. However, the AMERISTAMP EXPO exhibition is almost always oversubscribed, so prompt submission of entries is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The AMERISTAMP EXPO philatelic exhibition will consist of approximately 275 frames. All single frame WSP grand award winners automatically qualify (but must apply) to exhibit. 50 frames will be available for the most popular championship. The remaining frames will be broken down roughly as follows: Youth (25), Single Frame (65), Picture Postcard (experimental) (25), Cinderella (25), Illustrated (40), and Display (40). The winner of the single-frame grand will qualify to participate in the championship competition at APS AMERISTAMP EXPO 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina.

Exhibitors may obtain the prospectus and entry form by writing to the American Philatelic Society, 100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA 16823-1367, calling 814-933-3803 extension 217, sending a fax to 814-933-6128, by e-mail message to stampshow@stamps.org or from the APS AMERISTAMP EPXO 2010 website at www.stamps.org/ameristamp.
