American Air Mail Society (AAMS) (Yearly Convention Meeting)
An AAMS Grand Award is offered for the best multi-frame exhibit of airmail material. Exhibit does not have to be a traditional aero or astrophilatelic exhibit but may be from any class, providing it has an airmail theme or is comprised primarily of airmail material. Exhibit must have been awarded at least a show vermeil medal. In the event that no exhibit meets these criteria, the award may be given to a single frame exhibit receiving at least a show vermeil medal. As of this update, the award is a Bulova World Clock, suitably engraved.

All airmail exhibits, whether traditional aero or astrophilatelic, or having an airmail theme or comprised primarily of airmail material, will be awarded an AAMS medal based on the show medal results. There presently are 8 medal levels: Large Gold, Gold, Large Vermeil, Vermeil, Silver, Silver-Bronze & Bronze. These are to match the show medals. Matching ribbons will be provided, to be mounted on the first frame of each exhibit.

The William Turner Memorial Award from the Metropolitan Air Post Society

An award instituted in 2006 in memory of William "Bill" Turner, MAPS past president. Bill was a co-editor of the FAM Section of Volume 3 of the AAMS catalogue. He was ever eager to share his extensive knowledge of FAM routes and WWII air mail history with his fellow air mail enthusiasts, and inspired them to continue further study and exhibition in that aerophilatelic specialty.

A plaque is awarded each year at The Philatelic Show in Boxborough MA for the best aerophilatelic or astrophilatelic exhibit, provided there are two or more such exhibits.
