How to obtain EFOCC awards for your upcoming stamp show

The EFOCC provides organizers of national and international stamp shows two awards that can used to recognize exhibits: EFOCC 1st and EFOCC 2nd.

If you are organizing a show at the national or international level, you can receive two awards, in the form of ribbons, that the jury can award to exhibits, following our "simple & sensible" guidelines. Basically, an exhibit may be of US or foreign material (or a combination, such as thematic or topical) and does not need to consist of only or mostly EFO material to win one of the awards. It merely needs to use EFOs in ways that positively impact the exhibit in the jury's opinion. The jury may decide to award both, one or none of the awards.

We do request that you report back to us the names and, if possible, the email and postal addresses of the winners, so that we can recognize them in our quarterly journal, The EFO Collector. When mailing the ribbons to you, we include a form for the reporting as well as a SASE. A winner of the EFOCC 1st award receives a complimentary one-year membership in the EFOCC. The complimentary membership is awarded only once to an exhibitor, although the exhibitor can win the EFOCC 1st and EFOCC 2nd awards more than once.

To receive the award ribbons, please e-mail us first by clicking here. Please be sure to specify your email and postal addresses as well as the name of the show you are organizing.
