The judging sheets detailed below are used at New Zealand National exhibitions held under the patronage of NZPF. Their use for other local or regional exhibitions or competitions is encouraged.

Societies holding 4-page or 8-page philatelic competitions may find the ‘Adult Development 1-frame’ judging sheet [Sheet 10] most useful and this can obviously also be used for assessing a society One-frame competition.

For more ‘formal’ competitions including, for example, inter-clubs the standard ‘National One-frame’ judging sheet [Sheet 8] is probably best. In these cases it is very desirable for at least one member of the judging panel to be on the NZPF National register. Providing sufficient notice is provided a judge from the list should be able to assist. if you do not know of a judge near you contact the Association of NZ Philatelic Judges or secretary@nzpf.org.nz.

Each judging sheet has a blank area in the top left hand corner. This is to allow the name of the exhibition or competition to be inserted. If you are have difficulty doing this please feel free to contact secretary@nzpf.org.nz who will be able to provide you with a file that may be more easily adapted for your purpose.

NOTE: Federation may alter these judging sheets at any time. Download and use judging sheets only when required to ensure the most current versions are used.

The following list uses the normal classification of competitive entries in a National exhibition. Some judging sheets are used for a number of classes while others are unique to class or subclass.
