Virtual Competitions Rules

The Council of the RSC have decided, for 2022, to hold the Livermore, Postcard and Single Sheet Competition at the RSC Conference in the UK. There will be a virtual element to these competitions and members are invited to submit virtual entries which will complement the entries presented at the Conference.  All virtual entries will have to be submitted by the latest 27 April, 2022.  

 

So in summary, there are three parts to our competitions:

1:  The Livermore (16 sheets) – according to the Livermore rules see below

2: The Postcard Competition (16 sheets) – also see below

3.: The Single Sheet competition

Virtual entries must please be clearly marked “Livermore” or “Postcard” or “Single Sheet”, as the case may be, In the covering email. 

The Single Sheet competition is intended to allow maximum flexibility in entering an exhibit of ANY aspect of Rhodesian philately – for example stamps, postal history, postal stationery, artists, postmarks, open class (for example a story of an addressee e.g. Borrow, Rogers, Oates, Selous etc), ephemera, air mail, railways, revenue etc etc. The idea is to spread the net as wide as possible, to HAVE FUN putting the exhibits together and to SHARE our material and thought process on the subject chosen. The Zoom meetings that are being held through Melbourne, Manchester and California and the Journals give a taste of the vast array of material and subjects that may be exhibited.

Further information and the guidelines are set out below:
