The Great Britain Philatelic Society website www.gbps.org.uk has been awarded runner up for the FEPA Francis Kiddle Medal. This is an outstanding achievement and recognises the development and management of a world class website. This new award, the Francis Kiddle FEPA Medal 2021, is named after Francis Kiddle RDP, a great philatelist and an enthusiastic leader in philatelic literature.
Giancarlo Morolli RDP, FEPA Vice-President wrote: In consideration of the many outstanding achievements by philatelic organisations in developing online offerings of high quality, FEPA has decided to give recognition to this new branch of our activities by awarding a medal to the philatelic website that it judges to be the best in 2021. Nominations were made by FEPA Member Federations and by a panel of 16 expert advisers, all well known philatelists, active in different areas of collecting and all interested in philatelic literature, including its digital components. Websites selected should be established in a FEPA member country or provide significant attention to European philatelic matters.
