The total number of awards was 85 for 2011. This was down from 107 in 2010. One significant factor in the drop was NOVAPEX, which was a regional show in 2011. In 2010, it was a National, and members won 15 awards. The other change of note is a reduction of multi-frame exhibits, from 68 in 2010 to only 43 in 2011. The number of single frame exhibits remains about the same, however.

There was one Literature Award, for John M. Walsh, a Vermeil won at the FIP show in India.

All exhibitors deserve praise for the time and effort in exhibiting. The chart does not cover the countless BNA exhibits by members at local or regional shows, for which they also deserve your praise.
