Joburg 2010 International Stamp Show

Round-Up reader Alexia de Souza sends along a press release announcing the Joburg 2010 International Stamp Show in Johannesburg, South Africa from October 27 to October 31.

According to Alexia, "2010 is a significant year in South Africa’s stamp history as it was one century ago that the first Union of South Africa stamp was printed, bearing ‘South Africa’. This stamp was not released, due to the passing of the King, but a stamp bearing the new King, Kind George V, was released later in the year (November), commemorating the opening of the Union Parliament."

The Joburg 2010 International Stamp Show is sponsored by the Philatelic Foundation of South Africa and the South African Post Office, and has the patronage of the Federation of Inter-Asian Philately (FIAP). It is also recognised by the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie (FIP), the international governing body for world philately.

Entries for the competitive exhibition close on 31 March.
