We are pleased to draw to your attention to SÜDWEST 2021, a virtual exhibition organised by the hard-working German Youth Philately organisation DPhJ, which will open for viewing on 1st May.

A total of 24 exhibits from DPhJ exhibitors and youth groups will be on display in this regional exhibition on a range of themes including historical personalities, sport and animals as well as traditional philately and postal history.

Exhibition manager Bernward Schubert (LV Südwest) commented: “We are aware that an online exhibition cannot replace a physical exhibition, but we will not let the virus spoil our enjoyment of exhibiting. We have a total of 87 exhibitors. A great result! Today we have the technical ability to display the competition online and would like to use this opportunity to try out a few new things. In addition, many more collectors have the opportunity to look at the exhibits in peace. I’m looking forward to a great exhibition on the Internet, it is a great advertisement for our hobby. Our thanks to Anette Hecker-Köhler, the head of the DPhJ exhibition department, for organising the exhibition.”

The exhibition will be available to view online from 1st – 31st May. To go to it follow this link:
