SINGPEX 2019 was already the 36th Asian International Stamp Exhibition. These FIAP exhibitions (Federation of Inter-Asian Philately) are organised every year – sometimes even twice a year. Asia is not only very active regarding organising international FIAP exhibitions, but also a lot of international FIP exhibitions are taking place in Asia in the last decade.

In the thematic philately class 34 exhibits were present, mostly from India (9), China (7), Indonesia (5) and Korea (4). No thematic exhibits from Australia and New Zealand, where the newer classes open philately (not present at SINGPEX 2019) and picture postcards (experimental class with 9 exhibits, 2 each from Australia and New Zealand) seem to be more popular now. A big gap of 8 points (!) between the large gold winner Tono Dwi Putranto (also the secretary of the FIP Thematic Philately Commission) and the following exhibits of the top 5 – all 4 from China with large vermeil medals. Very symbolic that a thematic exhibit about ‘lions’ wins in Singapore – with a lion in the logo of the exhibition. In total there were 10 large golds on SINGPEX 2019 (one in thematics) and 36 gold exhibits (none in thematics!).

Again like on CHINA 2019 most of the one frame thematic philately exhibits only received a certificate of participation and no points. Only one exhibit in thematics received a medal – not so for the one frame exhibits in the other classes where almost everybody received a medal.
