We have recently heard these awards described as the Academy Awards of the philatelic world. We originally launched the awards to help celebrate the successes of 2020 and to keep inspiring people after such a tough year. 2020 has seen many companies think on their feet, take risks, pivot their business and come up with outstanding creative initiatives.
We are delighted to be able to announce these winners and are thrilled to be showcasing the amazing work people have done within the hobby and the trade. All nominees will have the chance to use the PTS Awards nominee logo, will be included on the website and will receive a copy of the Philatelic Exporter. Category winners will have their business featured in the Philatelic Exporter, will be included on The PTS website, will secure a year's subscription to the Philatelic Exporter and an advert in the upcoming PTS Collector Handbook 2021.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the nominations and for joining in with the awards. Including the judges, Isobel for coordinating the whole project and The Philatelic Exporter. We were delighted with the feedback and a massive congratulations to all the winners and runners up.
