Founders Award

In an effort to improve the quality of the exhibits at the BNAPEX shows, the Board of Governors created a new award, the Founders Award, to be given each year to past Grand Award winners.

Under current rules, BNAPEX Grand Award winners are barred from showing the same material in subsequent shows and it was felt that eventually all of the best collections in the Society would be barred for that reason, so a new class was created, Past Grand Award Winners. The prizes are the regular medal of the Society set with a precious stone and the scale of prizes is as follows:

  • 1 to 3 exhibits: Bronze Medal with Ruby
  • 4 to 6 exhibits: Silver Medal with Sapphire and a Bronze Medal with Ruby
  • Over 6 exhibits: Gold Medal with Diamond as well as the Silver and Bronze

The award was given only once.
