Museum of Philately
Rowland Hill Medal
will be decided by public vote
The Museum of Philately sent a note a few days ago:
There is just a month left to be in with the chance to enter the Rowland Hill Medal. All collections received and reviewed by the curators before the end of August will be in with a chance of being displayed and then entered into the competition.
The exciting element to the award is that the public will decide who the winner is. Collections will be hosted online and anyone around the world will be able to vote who wins. Voting opens in September and will continue right up to the awards ceremony set to be held at philately’s most prestigious show, Monacophil 2022. Voting will be launched on the Museum of Philately and announced on social media and on the Museum’s newsletter.
This is the first year that the Medal has been awarded and presented to celebrate the amazing collectors and collections displayed on this platform.
The Museum of Philately captures award winning and unique collections that have been privately assembled by collectors, many of whom have won international recognition for their exhibits. These types of assemblages are rarely available to view and by sharing them digitally everyone within the hobby and outside it can enjoy them. This encourages and helps to inform the current crop of philatelists and hopefully will inspire the next generation of collectors.
The award has been named after the pioneer of the postal system Rowland Hill. Sir Rowland Hill was born in Kidderminster in England in 1975 he was the originator of the penny postage system. He was known for his development of the modern postal system.
If you have a collection that is suitable for the Museum, or want to be considered for the Rowland Hill Medal 2022, now is the time to get in touch with us.
