We are pleased to announce that the first online philatelic exhibition LITUANICA-2018 is now open.
The exhibition is held under the patronage of the Union of Lithuanian Philatelists (Lietuvos Filatelistų Sąjunga – LFS) and the Lithuania Philatelic Society (LPS) will be on display online through February 1, 2019.
Despite being limited to one small collecting area and only to LFS/LPS members, this online exhibition succeeded in bringing together a variety of entries in several philatelic exhibition classes (postal history, thematic, single frame, and open class) across the competitive, non-competitive and champion class categories. This exhibition also shows the diversity of subject matter ranging from the first Lithuanian stamp issues, local issues, and stamp forgeries to postmark studies, censorship mail, deportees mail, air philately, etc.
We hope exhibition visitors will enjoy viewing these rarely seen items of Lithuanian philately – as remarkable stories that educate, entertain and stimulate further research and discussions.
Finally, we hope that such online exhibiting events if held regularly will further advance Lithuanian philately and entice more people to share their collections, and get involved into exhibiting.
