GUIDELINES FOR ENTRIES IN THE CINDERELLA CLASS

(Page 90 of the YPA Handbook)

1.   The first page should be an introductory page that shows the concept and its development within the exhibit. It should have a clear beginning; a clear theme and a logical ending. Include references on this page.

2.   Too much description or duplication of the title on the remaining pages is not advised, nor is duplication of philatelic content.

3.   Choose your subject with care. Every sheet must count for marks.

4.   The Cinderella class has a very wide base with a great variety of material. Make sure that this is the most appropriate class for your material.

5.   Make sure that your description is referring to the Cinderella material, such as Christmas seals, and not the cover or wrapper.

6.   Items can be mint or used. Usually it is inadvisable to mix mint and used on the same sheet.

7.   Rarity is not a judge of value but reflects the relative scarcity of such items.

8.   Do not try to cover too large a period. Overcrowding by overlapping material on the sheet or overfilling the sheet constitutes poor presentation.

9.   Vary your presentation, regimentation is boring! Before mounting, set out your sheets on a table or on the floor to ensure that you achieve the best possible balance.

10.   Use good, clean material wherever possible. Items in poor condition spoil the overall appearance.

11.   Make sure that the material agrees with the outline development given on the first page.

12.   If using a typewriter or computer, it is better to use plain paper or the plain side of a sheet, as the quadrille lines of a sheet do not usually correspond with the typewriter or computer.
