The 61st Orapex, scheduled for May 4-5 at the Nepean Sportsplex in Ottawa, Ont, is themed ” Marcophily/Postmarks. ”
Ottawa’s national stamp exhibition will feature several professional dealers from across Canada and the popular national exhibition featuring over 140 competitive frames of exhibits. The deadline for exhibitors to enter is Feb. 29. In 2010, the American Philatelic Society granted “World Series of Philately” status to Canadian National Level shows. As a result, the winner of the Multi Frame Grand Award at ORAPEX is invited to the APS StampShow Champion of Champions event, and the winner of the Grand Award for the One Frame Category at ORAPEX is invited to the Champion of Champions event for one frame entries.
Volunteers from the RA Stamp Club, the Amicale des philatélistes de l’Outaouais, the Ottawa Philatelic Society, and related philatelic societies and organizations manage Orapex. For more details, visit orapex.ca.
