Exhibit at Americover 2018

Americover Seeks Exhibits for 2018 Show in Georgia

The American First Day Cover Society is seeking exhibits for Americover 2018, a World Series of Philately show to be held Aug. 3-5 in Peachtree Corners, Georgia (suburban Atlanta).

The prospectus is now available on the AFDCS Web site by clicking this link, by regular mail from Kerry Heffner, 17656 K Street, Omaha, NE 68135-3491, or e-mail at exhibits@afdcs.org. The deadline for entering the Americover 2018 exhibition is June 1, 2018, or whenever the available frames fill up, which has happened in recent years.

The emphasis at Americover is on First Day Cover exhibits, and about three-fourths of each exhibit should consist of FDCs. Multi-frame, one-frame and youth exhibits are welcome.

As a WSP show, the winner of the Grand Award at Americover 2018 will be part of the Champion of Champions competition at APS Stampshow 2019. Charles J. O'Brien, III of Georgia, winner of the 2017 Grand with “New York World's Fair 1939," will represent Americover this summer in Columbus, Ohio.

The Americover Grand prize is again a crystal pyramid provided by the AFDCS' Claude C. Ries Chapter.

In addition, if six or more competitive single-frame exhibits are entered, the Curtis B. Patterson Award recipient for the best single-frame exhibit will be invited to enter the APS Single-Frame Champion of Champions competition at AmeriStamp Expo in 2019.

Besides its Grand and Reserve Grand awards, Americover offers special awards from both the AFDCS and other philatelic societies, including ones for best exhibits of foreign FDCs, topical FDCs, pre-1931 FDCs, best exhibits by a novice and a youth, and best single-frame exhibit.

Unlike other WSP shows, Americover's exhibit awards are not presented at its banquet (which is held Friday night), but at the AFDCS Business Meeting Saturday morning.
