Fit4IBRA: BDPh online seminars in the winter 2022/23
We received the following from the BDPh (the German Philatelic Federation):
With the IBRA 2023 in Essen, the “World Philately Championships” will be held in Germany again for a long time next year. Such an event is also a challenge. One goal is to show as many great exhibits as possible and get good reviews. Everyone who has an exhibition collection knows that there is always something that can be improved. The IBRA 2023 is an incentive for the BDPh to conduct the BDPh online seminars in the winter half-year 2022/23 under the motto “Fit4IBRA” on the topic “Design of an exhibition collection”.
The lectures will take place online from December 2022. The aim is a foray into the various exhibition classes of traditional philately, about postal history, postal stationery, thematic and the still new open class. Speakers are experienced philatelists, exhibitors and jurors from German-speaking countries and all over the world. Most of the lectures will be in German, but some international speakers will speak in English. So far, Alfred Schmidt, Ralph Ebner, Iva Mouritsen, Jean Voruz, Joachim Maas, as well as Sandeep Jaiswal and Larry Haber in English have confirmed. With Prof. Henrik Mouritsen, RDP, we have succeeded in gaining a globally recognized, experienced and innovative exhibitor as “Philatelic Director”.
In addition to questions about the design and optimization of exhibits, many philatelic topics are of course also dealt with. Participation is therefore certainly also of interest to non-exhibitors, beginners and interested parties. Participation in the online seminars is open to all interested parties and free of charge. As before, registration is via Eventbrite. It is possible to register for individual seminars. It is also possible to register for the entire series of seminars en bloc.
The program is now fixed. Registration is possible via the BDPh homepage at https://www.bdph.de/index.php?id=85

STAMPA 2022 was held at Griffith College, Dublin
A few days before the opening of STAMPA 2022 (7-9 October), we received the following email from our Irish fellows:
STAMPA, the Irish National Stamp Exhibition, will celebrate its 50th anniversary this week, with a return to the venue at Griffith College, Dublin. This year also marks the centenary of Irish Stamps and we will be marking this with some very special exhibits in both the various competitions and displays throughout the exhibition.
Check out www.stampa.ie
This year we will be continuing FREE entry to all attendees. This will be the first exhibition following COVID and we are delighted to be back.
If you collect Irish Stamps or if you have an interest in Irish Philately, or stamps and philately in general or even stamp competitions, then this is the show for you. A major feature of STAMPA has always been the competition entries and displays. There are many classes in which exhibitors have entered whether novice or advanced – see the Awards: (http://stampa.ie/index.php/awards) and Entry Form for details: (http://stampa.ie/index.php/entry-form). For Stampa 2022 a new MODERN class will commence.
A set of philatelic souvenirs are available exclusively to STAMPA members and, in addition, there will be a public souvenir for sale at the show, with specific limited edition postmark cancellations for each day. These items are not available from An Post.
