ATA One Page Exhibit

The time is now to plan your one-page exhibit for entry in the American Topical Association’s third annual My One-Page Exhibit Program. Last day to submit exhibit is February 15, 2023.

 

A one-page exhibit presents a story illustrated by stamps and other materials in a single 8.5” x 11” page or – new this year -- an 11” x 17” page. Previous exhibits have shared stories of historic events, scientific discovery, personal pastimes and more.

 

Exhibiting in the My One-Page Exhibit Program is free and open to all. ATA membership is not required. All exhibitors will receive an ATA certificate commemorating their participation.

 

The exhibit program grows each year, and ATA is hoping to break its own record of more than 230 entries submitted in 2022 from 14 countries on subjects in 13 categories.

 

Details and exhibit guidelines will be posted on the ATA website (www.americantopical.org) soon.
