Maybe a collector from the family will arouse your interest, maybe a classmate will draw your attention to this hobby or you will feel attracted to the brands by the displays of a dealer.

Scout Philatelic Society (SPPhV), help you to avoid such losses. In courses they show the basic skills of collecting, such as storing, removing, organizing and opening. What joy you will feel when you have a good album page!

Once this first hurdle has been cleared, you are free to participate in exhibitions. With the required number of points, it goes from an exhibition in stage 3 to a Regiophil. After the further development of your collection you can participate in national or even international competitions. However, this requires that you keep working on your brands. Only everlasting work leads to awards.
