To acknowledge the efforts of BNAPS members and the success they have achieved in exhibiting BNA material, we present information about BNAPS exhibit winners at National exhibitions in Canada and the United States and FIP-sponsored International exhibitions.
Awards are for BNA exhibits and BNA literature. If you think we've missed any, let us know.
Contact Adri Veenstra (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
The information on this page was provided by Norris (Bob) Dyer.
|Nationals - U.S. and Canada||International - FIP||BNAPS||Total|
The total number of awards in 2006 was slightly less than in 2005, but generally the award levels were higher - 40 golds, for example, compared to 33 in 2005. Single frame awards were 23% of the total. BNAPS exhibits totaled 31, compared to 33 in 2005.
Only 15% of the total awards were at APS shows within the United States - the continued emphasis was on exhibiting the BNA material at shows in Canada, which is logical, although an increase of exhibits within U.S. venues would be desirable. Exposure of BNA material to the general stamp-collecting public is a recruitment tool.
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.
