The Meyerson Award is presented for the best exhibit of a province before Confederation or a territory (Assiniboia, Athabasca, British Columbia, Keewatin, Lower Canada, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Upper Canada, Yukon) shown at the BNAPEX convention. All types of competitive exhibits including stamps, postal history, postal stationery, and aerophilately are eligible.
In 2003, 2005, and 2006, two Meyerson Awards were given. One was for the best Newfoundland exhibit. The other, the "Meyerson Provinces Award", was for the best exhibit of a pre-Confederation province other than Newfoundland.
The Meyerson Award was established in 1965 in honour of Daniel C. and William S. Meyerson who carried out extensive research and published numerous articles on Newfoundland philately. The two brothers teamed up to win the Grand Award at the first BNAPEX in 1949. Daniel C. Meyerson won a second BNAPEX Grand Award at the BNAPEX in 1960.
