Exhibit Entry Form – Downloadable, printable PDF file

NB: To assist the judges in preparing for your Exhibit, the PIPEX Exhibiting Committee requires one copy of the Title Page and a one or two-page Synopsis (Ancillary Notes for judges) to be submitted with the entry form.

If you as an exhibitor feel that you would like to have more of an understanding of what a Title Page or Synopsis should contain, why each is important, and would like information on how to prepare them effectively, please check out the links to the following two articles.

            The Title Page - telling everyone about your exhibit

            The Synopsis - telling the judges about your exhibit

Although these articles represent the opinions of the authors, they also reflect those of a significant number of judges for whom they have the highest respect.


Club Exhibits

Every club or society that is a member of the Northwest Federation of Stamp Clubs is invited to show at PIPEX 2020 a Club Exhibit.  This one-frame, noncompetitive exhibit can showcase the club itself and interesting pages by its members.  The exhibit will contain a fascinating variety of treasures by -- preferably -- fifteen members of the club.  The normal frame fee is reduced for these exhibits.
