Dear Philatelic Exhibitor,

Here is a prospectus for philatelic exhibiting at INDYPEX 2017. We hope that you can join us in person for Hoosier Hospitality. You are also welcome to participate by sending your exhibit to share with the guests who attend the show.

INDYPEX 2017 will be hosting the The Indiana Postal History Society. In addition, several other societies will have meetings or information tables at Indianapolis. We expect a variety of exhibits covering the realm of philately and have selected a jury with varying specialties to review the exhibits.

INDYPEX welcomes all types of exhibits within the American Philatelic Society (APS) scheme of Classes and Divisions. We will have Six Categories: APS Youth, Local Youth, General, One Frame, Postcards and NonCompetitive. The General Class will contain all types of exhibits that the APS includes in this category - traditional exhibits, postal history, aerophilately, astrophilately, postal stationery, revenues, thematics, Cinderallas, illustrated mail, and display exhibits. The One Frame Class will be limited to 12 exhibits per APS regulations.

INDYPEX will continue presenting as its "medal awards" the tradition artisan glass globes in distinctive colors for each award level. Our Grand and Reserve Grand Awards are custom designed art glass on lighted bases. These Zimmerman glass globes are handcrafted in Indiana and signed by the artist. Indiana was a center for the production of both art and functional glass for many years (note the "Ball" jars used in canning are from Muncie, Indiana), and the Indiana Stamp Club is especially pleased to offer art glass awards.

The show banquet location will be at the Exhibition Center. At the Banquet, casual wear is quite appropriate and we promise relaxed fun and no lengthy speeches.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need MORE INFORMATION. Thank you for your interest and support of INDYPEX.
