AMERICOVER Exhibit Update

Exhibits Still Being Accepted; Jury Named

The American First Day Cover Society continues to seek exhibits for AMERICOVER 2011, a World Series of Philately show to be held Aug. 5-7 in Indianapolis.

Exhibitors may download the Prospectus and Entry Form. Entry Forms should be submitted as soon as possible, as the entry period may end without prior notice.

Judges serving on the AMERICOVER 2011 jury are as follows:
  • Janet Klug, Chief Judge, (Ohio; pictured)
  • Elizabeth M. Hisey (Florida)
  • Peter Martin (Virginia)
  • Eliot Landau (Illinois)
  • Ann de Bayley (Deb) Nicoll (Indiana)
The emphasis at AMERICOVER is on First Day Cover exhibits, and about three-fourths of each exhibit should consist of FDCs. All three divisions (Postal, Illustrated Mail and Display) of the General class of exhibits will be accepted, as well as One-Frame and Youth exhibits.

As a WSP show, the winner of the Grand Award at AMERICOVER 2011 will be part of the Champion of Champions competition at Stampshow 2012. Ralph Nafziger, winner of the 2010 Grand with "The 3-Cent Oregon Territory Issue," will represent AMERICOVER this summer in Columbus, Ohio.

In addition, if six or more competitive single-frame exhibits are entered, the Curtis B. Patterson Award recipient for the best single-frame exhibit will be invited to enter the APS Single-Frame Champion of Champions competition at AmeriStamp Expo in 2012.

In addition to its Grand and Reserve Grand awards, AMERICOVER offers special awards from both the AFDCS and other philatelic societies, including ones for best exhibits of foreign FDCs, topical FDCs, pre-1931 FDCs, best exhibits by a novice and a youth, and best single-frame exhibit.
