Congress Medal

Congress Medal

The Congress Medal is a medal awarded each year at the Philatelic Congress of Great Britain to a single individual "in recognition of dedication to the hobby over many years".[1]

The first recipient of the medal was Wilfred Haworth at the 1959 Congress in Torquay.[2] The original medal was designed by Ernest Hugen[2] but the design has since changed.

The medal is not for philatelic excellence, but for voluntary endeavours particularly at a national level.[1]

The winner is selected by the Awards Committee of the Association of British Philatelic Societies (ABPS) and must be nominated by an officer of a philatelic society affiliated to the ABPS.[1]
