ORAPEX Exhibiting

ORAPEX has a long tradition of excellent exhibits by leading Canadian and international collectors. From traditional multi-frame exhibits through regional and youth single-frame exhibits, there is something for collectors and the public alike to enjoy. Over 150 competitive frames of exhibits are judged by accredited individuals with vast experience in general and specialized fields of collecting. The show is rounded out by a number of non-competitive exhibits including a Court of Honour, local club-sponsored frames and other offerings from past ORAPEX exhibitors.

Each year, ORAPEX has a theme. For the 2019 show, the theme will be Elizabethan Era Philately.

The panel of judges for 2019 will be Joel Weiner (Chief Judge and Chair of Jury, Edmonton AB), Robert Pinet (Toronto ON), John Wilson (Toronto ON), Bill Schultz (West Chester PA) and Steve Johnson (apprentice, London ON).

In 2010, the American Philatelic Society granted "World Series of Philately" status to Canadian National Level shows. As a result, the winner of the Multi Frame Grand Award at ORAPEX is invited to the APS StampShow Champion of Champions event, and the winner of the Grand Award for the One Frame Category at ORAPEX is invited to the winter APS AmeriStamp Expo Champion of Champions event for one frame entries. The ORAPEX Committee is proud to manage a WSP show, where the best exhibits move on for recognition at the largest annual stamp shows in North America.

ORAPEX Exhibition Forms

In preparation for exhibiting, ORAPEX urges potential exhibitors to familiarize themselves with the Manual of Philatelic Judging and to make use of the tremendous resources available through the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors. The AAPE is one of ORAPEX's meeting presenters and awards sponsors.
