Rules

Entries will be jdged according to the standard FIP rules for one-frame exhibits. In effect this means each entry will be judged according the the rules for the class in which it falls, e.g Traditional, Postal History, Picture Postcards etc. See the Prospectus for full details.

Both an entry form and a draft title page are required at the time of Entry. Note, the title page will be judged acording to what is displayed in the frames, hence you are free to provide an initial draft which can later be modified.

National One-frame Topical Challenge

TPS will be offering a One-frame Topical class Challenge. The Topical class is an experimental class developed for use in Australia by the APF. It aims to provide an option for exhibitors wishing to show stamps according to a specific topic as an alternative to the Thematic class.

The APF will be providing a presentation on this Class at the Canberra exhibition in March 2020 and also a downloadable presentation.
