Latest Web Updates
Since 2020 exhibitions across the world have either been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID - 19 pandemic. Organised philately soon introduced virtual exhibitions, where exhibitors upload exhibits for the Organising Committee. The exhibits then get judged via Zoom meetings. The FIP too now recognises the results of many of these exhibitions.
Some recent exhibitions with a Thematic Class were:
