FEPA Medal for Service to Philately 2018
Pedro Marcal Vaz Pereira (Portugal)
Pedro Vaz Pereira has been chairing the Philatelic Federation of Portugal since 1987 and also served as FEPA President from 2001-2009. As an outstanding collector and student of Portuguese philately, and author of important publications and exhibits, he has led the organisation of a large number of important exhibitions, at national and international level: among them, the unforgettable Portugal 2010 in Lisbon. His international career has been constantly marked by enthusiasm and dedication in favour of European philately, testified by FEPA NEWS, which he relaunched in 2002 transforming a small photocopied bulletin issued now and then into the present magazine.
