- 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".
The medal is not for philatelic excellence, but for voluntary endeavours particularly at a national level.
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.
