    As an American Philatelic Society World Series of Philately show, the MILCOPEX Grand Award winner is eligible for the annual "Champion of Champions" competition at Stampshow. However, you need not have championship level material to enjoy the benefits of exhibiting. The act of assembling your material into an exhibit allows you to view your collection in a new way. Also, the judge's critique, to be held on the afternoon of September 16, will provide you with suggestions and insights that can help expand the boundaries of your collection. You may even win an award!

    If you have any other questions about MILCOPEX, please feel free to contact Rob Henak.  Or if you prefer the old-fashioned method, address your letters to:
