Hi, all,

To my surprise, I found that I qualify for WAP mixed and CW through LotW. Who here chases this paper?

I seem to recall a similarly (oppositely?) spirited award for working multiple places north of the arctic circle, including Svalbard, extreme northern Canada, etc., and a QSL card from my youth from Alert, Canada.

Does NZART accept LoTW credits for WAP?

Thanks for clearing up that one, Steve.
I just checked LotW and I see I have 790 credits Mixed and 633 CW, and a great huge list that goes on and on. Apparently that qualifies me for some more bits of paper.
There was a thread on this forum recently about the cost to apply WPX credits in LotW, and it added up to some serious dough.
The only CQ Awards I've been interested in are WAZ (I have the Mixed certificate, and apparently qualify for 5BWAZ too), and the CQ DX Marathon.
The question has already been asked as to why LotW supports WPX and not WAZ.

Ok, the "World Antarctic Program" is completely different to CQ Magazine's "Worked All Prefixes".
The former is one in which I am interested, and must chase up a few QSL cards.
The Wireless Institute of Australia has an "Antarctic Award" which has the same criteria.

Interestingly enough, CQ magazine no longer calls the WPX award "worked all prefixes", but the ARRL and others do.

Incorrectly expanded acronyms have always been a pet peeve of mine. "Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused."

Well, technically, WPX was never an acronym or initialism to begin with!

Not to be confused with the WAP - Worked All Pacific award.

What's a "Pacific entity?" I might qualify for both.  Grin

A "Pacific Entity" is any DXCC entity listed in the IARU Worked All Continents "Oceania". Should be easy to find 30 or more different ones in your log already.
Another interesting award you will see in the NZART Awards is the "Captain James Cook Award". But that's getting off topic.
