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: email@example.com).
The information on this page was provided by Norris (Bob) Dyer.
|Nationals - U.S. and Canada||International - FIP||BNAPS||Totals|
The total number of awards in 2012 (56) was markedly lower than in 2011 (85). Single frame awards were 41% of the total awards, and Golds 43% of all awards.
Not listed above are two Prix d’ Honneur awards for BNAPS members whose exhibits were U.S. national finalists at the APS Stampshow. Those exhibitors were David McLaughlin and Kevin O’Reilly.
What accounts for the decline? There were no literature awards in 2012 or international shows and BNAPEX awards were down somewhat. The biggest decline, however, was in awards at national shows in the U.S. and Canada. In 2010 there were 66. This fell to 46 in 2011, and only 30 last year. I believe many national shows are begging for exhibits (of any kind) and a few have basically given up. Is exhibiting a declining interest among philatelists?
Member exhibits help to promote BNA philately. It is too bad we are seeing fewer at the national level. I have scant data on local/regional shows and perhaps activity is more stable there.
