The total number of awards in 2008 is considerably higher than in 2007 because of the large number of BNAPEX exhibits this year. Single frame awards were 35% of the total.

The number of large gold and gold exhibits was 56% of the total, compared with only 36% last year. Either our exhibitors are doing a much better job or it is becoming easier to get the highest awards.

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.

2008 Exhibit Awards

SESCAL/AMERICAS 08, Los Angeles, CA, 10-12 October 2008

This was both an international (FIAF/FIP) and national APS show. Some exhibitors opted for awards based upon both international and national scoring; thus, some exhibits are listed twice. International exhibits have additional award levels and numeric scores are also given.
