‘100 Years On’ a Traditional Philatelic Challenge

This is another of the Challenge series. The period chosen is anywhere between 1891 and 1914. The exhibit can be between 3 and 8 frames and must be traditional, not necessarily a new exhibit. The likely venue will be Sydney 2011. There are already ten entrants, but this leaves plenty of room for others, and so far, no NZ topic has been selected! Details can be found at www.apf.org.au

Development Class at Palmpex 2010

It has been decided that postcard entries will now also be accepted for this class, as well as entries for all the philatelic classes.
