San Diego Stamp Show to be held virtually
The San Diego Stamp Show, an American Philatelic Society World Series of Philately show, will host philatelic exhibits in a completely virtual format.
The exhibit judging, awards and feedback will take place online July 8-10.
The virtual exhibits can be viewed both before and after those dates by visiting the show’s website at www.
Show co-chair Mark Banchik said that this new virtual format serves as a living laboratory after the in-person show last October.
He added that the virtual show is oversubscribed with exhibits, with about one-third of the submissions coming from international exhibitors.

The San Diego Stamp Show single-frame grand award winner will be eligible for the single-frame Champion of Champions competition at the Chicagopex show in Chicago Nov. 18-20, 2022.
