The North Toronto Stamp Club (NTSC) has decided to host its 77th annual exhibition online this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Since 2016, the NTSC has held its exhibition in conjunction with the spring National Postage Stamp & Coin Show, which is hosted in Mississauga by Trajan Publishing Corp., publisher of CSN. This year, however, the exhibition will be held online throughout most of December.
“Holding the exhibition online this year will give the North Toronto Stamp Club a great opportunity to reach a larger audience and promote our hobby to collectors and non-collectors around the world,” according to a statement issued by the club in mid-November.
NTSC members are invited to submit one-page, half-frame, one-frame and multi-frame exhibits for display from Dec. 7-28.
This year, there’s also a special challenge for one-page exhibitors, who must focus on one of three themes, including “blue,” the “animal kingdom” and the letter “C.”
“How members interpret these themes are up to them,” according to club officials.
