The International Philippine Philatelic Society (IPPS) was founded in 1974. The Society is based in Manila with a separate overseas operations branch established in 1986. The Philippine and Overseas operations are linked together to form the IPPS. At the present time, IPPS-overseas operations have over 200 members from 12 countries (approximately 175 in the United States).|
The IPPS publishes the all-color 36+ page quarterly Philippine Philatelic Journal (PPJ) pertaining to all aspects of Philippine philately, including new issues, membership news, meeting announcements, mail sales, national and international auction results, general topics, and serious research on Philippine philately.
IPPS sponsors regional and national meetings in the Philippines and United States. The IPPS is one of the sponsors of the philatelic exhibition PHILPEX in Manila. In 1996, the Eugene A. Garrett Award was created and is awarded to the Philippine exhibit judged the most outstanding at each APS eligible World Series of Philately show.
IPPS encourages research by promoting articles and books published by its members. Published topics include serious research on the stamps and postal history of all periods. Refer to the Philippines Philatelic Book Store under Publications in this website for a list of member publications currently available to all collectors.
