In Austria (Wiener Neustadt) took place the national exhibition ÖVEBRIA (Österreichischer Verband Briefmarkenausstellung) (18 to 20 October). Postal history (13 exhibits) and thematic philately (12 exhibits) seem to be very popular in Austria. They compose more than half of the exhibition with a total of 46 exhibits (two literature and 6 youth exhibits included).

12 of the exhibits or more than 25% of the exhibits received at least 90%. This is in Austria at a national stamp show the equivalent of a large gold medal. 6 or half of the large gold medals went to the thematic class and only 3 to postal history class! Almost all highest award in the thematic class were obtained by the members of one and the same club: Philatelie-Club Montfort. In Austria (and also elsewhere) they already speak for some years now of the “Montforter Schule” (or the School of Montfort) – as a certain way of creating (successfully) exhibits. The leading couple of the School of Montfort, Eva and Franz Zehenter, together even received three large gold medals. Franz Zehenter is also the editor of the Austrian thematic philately newsletter of the ÖMSA (Austrian thematic collectors association).
