Canberra Stampshow 2020
Canberra Stampshow 2020, the twenty-first Biennial National Philatelic Convention staged by the Philatelic Society of Canberra Inc, will be held at the Hellenic Club Woden, Canberra on 13-15 March 2020.
The main theme of the exhibition will be a celebration of Pacific Exploration including the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook voyage to the Pacific including his visit to New Zealand and the Eastern Coast of Australia.
Classes and Pacific Challenge
There will be two half national exhibitions in Australia in 2020, Canberra in March and Newcastle in August sharing the classes. Our exhibition will have National classes of Postal History, Aerophilately, Astrophilately, Postal Stationery, Revenues, Literature, Frugal, Youth and Picture Post Cards plus the Pacific Challenge for which the Philatelic Society of Canberra will provide a special prize for the best South Pacific-related exhibit in any of the classes offered by the Exhibition.
Canberra Stampshow 2020 also includes all state-level classes.
Entries close 29 November 2019.
Canberra Stampshow 2020 will occur the weekend before Auckland 2020 Asian International Stamp Exhibition to be held in Auckland 19-22 March 2020. Canberra Stampshow will facilitate the delivery of any Australian entry which an exhibitor wishes to show at both Canberra and Auckland to an Australian Commissioner travelling to Auckland 2020.
Canberra Stampshow 2020 will also be the last chance for Australian and New Zealand exhibitors to qualify exhibits in the classes conducted at the show for entry into Melbourne 2021 Asian International Stamp Exhibition.
New Zealand Entries must be submitted through the New Zealand Commissioner: Paul McTaggart 5 Glen Road Stokes Valley Lower Hutt 5019 New Zealand Phone +64 4 563 6536 Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t forget that the show is part of the annual Celebrate Canberra Festival and our exhibition will be a featured event, together with many other exciting events. If you are an early riser the balloon festival (on every morning weather permitting) is great to see and go for a ride over Canberra.
I look forward to seeing many of you at the show.
