Organization: Awards

Awards were extremely important to exhibitors, and were used in marketing and sales promotion. The Centennial used a novel system in that it awarded one medal only, a bronze, instead of the system of gradations used in previous exhibitions. Great care was taken as to consistency and fairness; still many countries and exhibitors complained that they had been slighted.
