The total number of awards in 2009 is lower than in 2008 (127). Single frame awards were 38% of the total number of exhibit awards, a percentage that continues to increase.

The number of Gold awards was 44% of the total, compared with 56% last year.

Not listed above are four Prix d’Honneur awards for BNAPS members whose exhibits were U.S. national finalists at the AmeriStamp Expo and APS Stampshow. Those exhibitors were John McEntyre, Marc Eisenberg, W. Terry Averbeck and John L. Robertson.

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.
