The New Zealand Philatelic Federation sees exhibitions as a suitable opportunity to promote the hobby, demonstrating to all, its cultural and educational values …

Article 1, NZPF Approved Regulations for National Exhibitions

This section deals with exhibitions at a national and international level.  However, all exhibitors must start somewhere and competitions within their own club and between clubs are an excellent way to do this.  Even if a person does not want to progress beyond that level they will find that exhibiting or displaying their material can be fun (indeed it should be), they develop a greater understanding of philately in general and their own subject in particular, and they can give pleasure and knowledge to those people who are able to see the display.

Information about club and inter-club competitions can be found at club competitions.
