Collectors Club of Chicago Philatelic Exhibitor’s Award

The Collectors Club of Chicago is pleased to continue their support for exhibitors by an award given to a deserving exhibitor, as determined by the jury at American Philatelic Society-certified philatelic exhibitions.

The award will consist of philatelic handbooks books published by the CCC, with titles to be determined at the relevant time. The retail handbook value of the award will be the equivalent of $US150-250, dependent on the number of handbooks being awarded, with all of the handbooks being in new, printer-fresh condition. Three handbooks will be awarded for American Philatelic Society-certified philatelic exhibitions.

Except for the following parameters, the jury has freedom in determining who receives the award. It is suggested that the jury allocate the award to an exhibit of merit to motivate them to continue to exhibit in their area of interest, to recognize their research and/or creativity, or recognizing a first-time exhibiting achievement.
