Members Displays

Stamp exhibitions are a very popular part of the hobby of philately.   This page showcases what PSQ members have shown and aims to encourage more people to exhibit their collections.

To exhibit, collectors arrange their stamps and/or other philatelic items on paper sheets, add text by way of explanation, and put the sheets in plastic protectors.  These pages are then placed in special frames, fifteen pages to the frame for Queensland State and PSQ Club exhibitions, or sixteen pages to the frame for Australian national and international exhibitions.   A collector’s exhibit can be just one frame, but usually they exhibit more frames, depending on what their exhibition is aiming to show.  Each year, there are many opportunities for PSQ members to exhibit at Club, State, National and International level.  In recent years, due to COVID-19, there have been virtual exhibitions, where everything is done on-line.

At State level and higher, accredited judges score the exhibits and provide feedback to exhibitors to help them improve.   Some events also have exhibits judged by public choice.  Medals and certificates are often awarded – please see the article on the Sheard Medal on the “Exhibitions Page” of this website.  

Due to data storage constraints, PSQ members can only show up to five of their pages here.
