The 149 total awards are the highest yearly total since I started recording totals in 2001 and 18% more than last year. Factors that influenced 2005 totals were the new Canadian national show, STAMPEX 2005 in Toronto, and the fact that BNAPEX 2005 was held in Canada this year.

There seems to be a decreasing number of BNAPS exhibits at APS shows. Only 13% of the awards for Nationals were from U.S. shows this year.

In the single frame category, APS has revised its scoring system and eliminated the Platinum level award. Overall, we had only 23 single frame awards compared to 38 in 2004. It appears experimental inclusion of these exhibits at FIP shows is over, also. This category continues to be popular at APS shows which provide separate Grands for them, but does not seem to be of equal interest to those who organize some Canadian national shows.

I know there are many of our members who exhibit at the local or regional level, or even in other countries at non-FIP shows. In every instance, this helps to promote BNA philately, and recruit new members. All exhibitors and those who write on BNA philately should be congratulated. It takes research and a lot of work.
