Let’s start at the very beginning, the basics for putting together a competitive philatelic exhibit. Define subject & scope. Identify material. Establish a story line with a beginning, middle, and end. Design and layout pages. Prepare a title page and synopsis. Master the steps for preparing an exhibit. Discern the process for entering an exhibit into competition. Use jury feedback sessions, judges’ evaluation forms, and “at frame” critiques to enhance the stories that your stamps and covers have to tell.
Individuals who have never exhibited and want to begin doing so. Collectors who have exhibited locally and are looking to move to the national level.
A stamp collector since 1975, Ken Martin joined the American Philatelic Society in 1980, began volunteering for the organization in 1982, and became a full time employee in 1995. In his earlier years Ken was president of the Junior Philatelists of America and founded the Penn State Stamp Club. He has been a nationally accredited philatelic judge since 2003.
