Canadian awarded in New York Collectors Club one-frame competition

Exhibitor Jim Taylor, of Calgary, Alta., took home one of five Awards of Merit in the New York Collectors Club’s 2020 One-Frame Competition, which was held virtually this year.

Taylor’s exhibit, “France 1934: Anti-Tuberculosis ‘Stamp’ Campaign,” was one of 32 entries in the virtual competition. The exhibit explores France’s 1934 Calmette “stamp,” a non-postal label (or cinderella) showing French biochemist Albert Calmette alongside two double-barred crosses.

Taylor is the current past president of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, whose international liaison and nominating committees he also serves.

Vernon Morris won the competition’s Grand Award for “Local Posts of Philadelphia, 1843-1861,” and Steven Walske took home the Reserve Grand Award for  “The United States 1869 Issue on Packet Mail to France, 1869-1871.”

Adhyatman Agarwala, Jean Voruz, Robert Rufe and David Zemer also won Awards of Merit. The Holyoake Friendship Cup – a “people’s choice” award determined by popular vote – went to Roger Brody.

While the winners were announced during a Nov. 4 video conference, Collectors Club officials are hoping to present the awards in person at the club’s annual dinner next May.
