The annual Holmsten Award represents exhibiting excellence in support of local stamp shows within the Council Area. The award rotates among all Council local philatelic exhibitions. The winner of the designated local show adds their name to the perpetual trophy plaque, and their club gets to display the plaque until the next time it is awarded.
