LINPEX 2010, the annual philatelic event hosted by the Lincoln (Neb.) Stamp Club, featured a competition for single- and multiple-frame exhibits on Feb. 27-28, 2010. Information about the event is available on the Club’s Web site. A prospectus and an exhibit entry form are available for download. You may also request these documents by mail from the exhibit coordinator:

The maximum number of frames per exhibit is ten for adults and five for juniors. The entry fee for each exhibit is $10 plus $5 per frame. Frame fees are free for junior exhibits, which require only the $10 entry fee.

A panel of three judged the exhibits. Their decisions were final. Judging granted awards on five levels: Gold, Vermeil, Silver, Silver–Bronze, and Bronze. Each exhibitor received a certificate of participation. Other awards will include those provided by AAPE, ATA, and USSS. The deadline for submitting entries for the competition was Jan. 31, 2010.
