Report of the Jury

The exhibition was planned as the 37th Asian International exhibition to be held under the patronage of FIAP. However, due to the global coronavirus pandemic, international Jury members and Commissioners were unable to travel. The decision was made to continue with NZ2020 as a national exhibition, with just the NZ competitive entries judged. This was very disappointing for the Organising Committee, as three year’s work had gone into preparation for the first international exhibition in New Zealand since 1990.

However, the literature exhibits had already arrived, so the decision was made to go ahead and judge the exhibits we could. The original group of literature judges was obviously not available, but we carried on with three New Zealand literature judges led by Robin Gwynn who is an FIP literature judge. Some exhibits were not able to be judged, primarily because they were written in languages the jurors were not familiar with. However, Tzu-Mu Lin’s fully bi-lingual book The Coiling Dragon 1897-1914 was awarded a special prize, and the Kiwi Catalogue and Handbook of NZ Revenue and Railway Stamps David Smitham (Ed) was awarded felicitations.

Many of the special prizes were to be brought by the commissioners and therefore did not arrive, but from the 46 philatelic or postcard exhibits and 36 literature entries, the Jury made four special awards.
The reduction of the exhibition from FIAP to national, meant that all exhibits were judged at the national level. This was disappointing for entrants who, for instance, had entered 5-frames and were hoping to qualify for 8-frames in future, but there was nothing we could do to help. All competitive exhibits present were qualified to be exhibited internationally, and therefore the level of awards is high with eight philatelic and two literature large gold medals, and 13 philatelic and two literature gold medals awarded.

Special mention needs to be made of Jenny Banfield, who managed to secure from NZ collectors, just over 180 frames of display material to fill the frames left vacant by China, Korea, Qatar and UAE. These displays were not judged, but there was some fantastic material on show, and the quality was consistently high.

Our thanks to the Organising Committee of NZ2020 on their efforts, and the arrangements made to provide support for the judging team.

My personal thanks to the six New Zealand jurors (five of whom were FIAP and/or FIP qualified) to complete the judging work expeditiously and harmoniously in difficult circumstances. The team was David Loe, Dr Ross Marshall, Dr Robin Gwynn, Norman Banfield, Tony Thackery, and secretary Jenny Long, with assistance from Geoff Kellow regarding electronic literature entries.

Special thanks to the Philatelists Association of Thailand who provided quality copies of the Thai exhibits which were not judged, but which helped support the exhibition. By way of thanks, the Organising Committee has agreed to provide commemorative medals to all the Thai exhibitors.

On behalf of the NZ2020 Jury.

Replacement displays

The advent of the Coronavirus first imposed travel restrictions from Mainland China to New Zealand and this was followed later by restrictions on the Republic of Korea. Travel restrictions in their own countries also led to exhibits from Qatar and Kuwait unable to attend. This affected our philatelic friends from China, Korea, Qatar and Kuwait including Commissioners, Jurors and exhibitors. NZ2020 was faced with the prospect of having nearly 160 empty exhibit frames. It was agreed we should attempt to find replacement displays to fill what would be large gaps in our exhibits. With the enthusiastic efforts of Jenny Banfield and the willing support of many exhibitors around the country we provided the displays described below.

The organising committee thanks all involved in this effort.
