2017-2018 season

Points are awarded in seasonal competitions as follows.

NB: Prints must be mounted on card with maximum dimensions 50 x 40cm. It has been several years since the old slightly larger size of 20 x 16inches has been outlawed but some prints are still being submitted at that size. These are liable to be disqualified. They certainly cannot be used for external competitions.

Images shown along with these results were photographs of the prints and so may not do them full justice. They are simply reminders of the winners.
