Payment for exhibit frames

The fee for competitive exhibits in classes 2 and 3 is CA $25 per frame. There is no frame fee for Class 4 exhibits (that is, Youth exhibits where the exhibitor is 21 years or younger as of 1 January 2023).

You can pay the frame fee by cheque or Interac e-Transfer. Cheques can be made out in CA $, US $, UK £, or EU € at the current exchange rate with the Canadian dollar. Full details are given in the Exhibit Entry Form.

We regret that we cannot accept payment by PayPal.

Exhibit synopsis and judging

Guidelines for synopsis preparation and information on judging at BNAPEX exhibitions are available below.

As a specialist society, BNAPS has developed its own Judging Guidelines for BNAPEX exhibits. However, the following references offer useful suggestions and guides for the preparation of exhibits.

The American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors (AAPE) website has articles about creating an exhibit, preparing the synopsis and title page, and judging criteria (but note that the AAPE rules apply to AAPE awards). The website also offers examples of successful exhibits.

The Online Resources and Exhibits (ORE) area of the BNAPS website has several examples of award-winning exhibits, many of them shown at previous BNAPEX conventions.
