Canadian exhibitors see international success

In 2019, international exhibitions were held in China (by the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie) and Buenos Aires (by the Federación Inter-Americana de Filatelia).

Altogether, Canadian exhibitors submitted 19 applications – comprising 89 frames and more than 1,400 pages – and 84 per cent of these exhibits were accepted by the respective organizing committees, reports David McLaughlin, chair of The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada’s international liaison.

A total of 10 applications were for first-time exhibit entries.

For multi-frame exhibits, Canadians earned 11 medals, including one large gold, two golds, three large vermeils, three vermeils, one silver and one silver bronze.

Single-frame points awarded to Canadians include the equivalent of one gold, one vermeil, one large silver and one silver.

“Remember that in national-level judging all of these awards except large gold would be one medal level higher with equivalent points,” adds McLaughlin.

In 2019, Canadian exhibitors competed in a wide range of classes, including traditional, postal history, aerophilately, open, youth, one frame and picture postcards.
