The organizing committee is making this class available for exhibits complying with the special regulations for Traditional, Postal History, Postal Stationery, Aerophilately, Thematic and Revenue classes.

Qualifying exhibits for the promotional class must contain philatelic mate­rials issued by Postal authorities within the last 20 years. Stamp series or philatelic topics chosen for this class which were substantially issued after 1992 are qualified as topics for the promotional class.

Promotional class exhibits will be judged according to the respective SREVs currently in force for the above-mentioned classes with the points awarded as follow:

Presentation 10 points

Knowledge & Research 35 points

Condition & Rarity 25 points

Condition (10 points)

Rarity (10 points)

Difficulty of Acquisition (5 points)

The distribution of points available recognize that Modern Philatelic mate­rial is worthy of study and in many instances is difficult to acquire, treat and present while the short passage of time since their issue has not provided an accurate indication of importance or rarity.

The promotional class will be treated as experimental and medals will not be provided, nor will they be recognized in the FIP/FIAP records. Awards are represented by CERTIFICATES only. Certificate of Participation will be given to exhibits attaining less than 60 points.
