Québec City Old Paper awards renamed to honour ‘esteemed’ philatelists

Hugo Deshaye and Grégoire Teyssier, the co-organizers of the Québec City Old Paper Show, have announced two esteemed names associated with the event’s awards.

The Grand Award of the “Up to Two Pages” exhibition is now known as the Grand Award Maxime S. Herold-Canada Stamp Finder. By sponsoring this award, Herold wishes to encourage exhibitors for their efforts by offering works of Québec art. The Grand Award will feature a work of art by well-known Gaspesian artist and philatelist John Wiseman.

The Reserve Grand Award will be named after late philatelist David Piercey, who died this October. “I am very touched by your decided tribute to David for all future years,” said David’s wife Elaine Piercey. “With much appreciation on behalf of my family to both of you, as well as to the partnering societies involved.”

Deshaye and Teyssier added: “Maxime, a recognized and esteemed philatelist in the philatelic community for decades, whose international reputation is well established, is honouring us by offering this prestigious award. The late Dr. David Piercey, one of the most recognized Canadian philatelic judges, believed in our experimental project of an “Up to Two Pages” exhibition, and he was the most excited guy of the group. It is a great honour for us that Elaine Piercey accepted to associate her husband’s name with our show.”
