Special Regulations for the Evaluation of Picture Postcard Exhibits at FEPA Exhibitions
Athens 15 November 2015
Guidelines for Judging Picture Postcard Exhibits
The text must be attractive and tastefully arranged. The overall impression of the exhibit is important, as is variety in the mounting. Heavily coloured pages should be avoided. Framing or matting of the Picture Postcards may increase the visual impression. Illustrations (maps, drawings, etc.) or objects, which have a direct connection to the topic or development of the Picture Postcard, may be used in limited numbers, but not so that the Picture Postcards become secondary to the exhibit.
