Exhibit at APS StampShow 2011

Time is running out! The entry deadline for philatelic exhibits for APS StampShow 2011 is May 2

The event offers exhibitors seeking an audience for their accomplishments a chance to participate in the nation’s largest annual postage stamp. Jointly sponsored by the American Philatelic Society, the United States Postal Service, and the American Stamp Dealers Association, this prestigious four-day event takes place August 11–14, 2011, in Columbus, Ohio.

General, youth, adult, and postcard exhibits are all welcome — the single frame class is already full. Competitive exhibitors may show their material in any one of six divisions: postal, cinderella, display, illustrated, revenue, or thematic. Literature entries are being accepted until May 9. A prospectus outlining all the rules and the entry forms may be viewed or downloaded online.

Mail completed entry forms to the APS, 100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA 16823, or fax them to the APS at 814-933-6128. Remember, May 2 is the deadline for the receipt of philatelic exhibits and May 9 is the deadline for Literature exhibits. So don’t delay!
