To acknowledge the philatelic endeavours of BNAPS members and their success in exhibiting BNA material, we list the awards they have won.
The listing covers exhibit awards for BNA exhibits and BNA literature at National exhibitions in Canada and the United States and FIP-sponsored International exhibitions. It also covers non-exhibit awards that recognize the philatelic achievements of members.
If you think we've missed any, let us know. Contact Adri Veenstra (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) who compiled the listings.
2020 was a year like no other. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most philatelic shows were cancelled from March onward. There were no National level philatelic exhibitions in Canada. The RPSC, PHSC, and BNAPS conventions were cancelled. The awards listing this year is rather sparse.
On the bright side, the desire to exhibit remains unabated, and many philatelic organizations are turning to virtual exhibitions to satisfy the demand. There were no virtual exhibitions at the National level in Canada in 2020, but the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors (AAPE) organized a virtual single frame Champion of Champions exhibition. It featured some of the best single frame exhibits shown at qualifying exhibitions in 2019, and included two BNA exhibits from BNAPS members.
There were several National level virtual exhibitions in other countries. They included SAVPEX 2020 (South Africa, single frame), Expojail 2020 (Mexico), EXPO-FAEF 2020 (Argentina), AusVipex 2020 (Australia, single frame), and Banglapex 2020 (Bangladesh). Some of these exhibitions invited international exhibitors, and several BNAPS members responded.
This compilation does not include non-BNA exhibits by BNAPS members or BNA exhibits by non-members.
