    • Class 11 Modern
      Exhibits in this class should predominantly contain material that has been issued in the 20 years prior to the exhibition, i.e., 2002. Acceptance will be based on the recommendation of National Commissioners and the discretion of the Cape Town 2022 Organising Committee. The 20 years will not be rigidly enforced. If the majority of the material falls inside the 20-year period, it can be shown as a Modern Philately exhibit. As an example of the flexibility that can be accommodated, a long-running definitive series with a time span that covers both before and after 2000 may be included if the majority of the material included is post-2000.
