BRATISLAVAFILA 2023 from the Union of Slovak Philatelists
The Union of Slovak Philatelists (ZSF), in cooperation with the Slovak Post as its strategic partner, organises BRATISLAVAFILA 2023, a National philatelic exhibition with international participation, which will take place between 1 and 4 June 2023 in the National Museum in Bratislava. The exhibition will be held under the auspices of Ministry of Transport and Construction with the support of main partner FILATELIA Petr Flaška Prague, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Slovak Republic.
BRATISLAVAFILA 2023 is a general competitive exhibition of rank I and II in all exhibition classes, including literature, suitable for beginners and advanced exhibitors, regardless of age. The organisers will be delighted to receive international applications with exhibits connected to the territory of Slovakia. The status of the national exhibition is a guarantee of the interest of domestic and foreign media. To further increase the attractiveness, the ZSF plans to arrange the loan of several rarities of world philately and to organise various accompanying events for the general public.
The ZSF is able to cover only part of the costs from its own resources, so it is important that other entities also participate in this event in the form of a partnership. All partners will be mentioned in the catalog, media outputs, or on the website, depending on the level of their involvement, and will receive a commemorative diploma, a catalog with an attachment, an exhibition medal and will be invited to a guided tour of the exhibition. All funds provided will be analytically and transparently recorded directly on the ZSF account. According to the amount of financial resources provided, the partners will be divided into: Bronze €50 – €100; Silver €101 – €500; Gold €501 – €1,000; Platinum €1,001 – €5,000; Diamond over €5,000
