Only those who have entered pieces are listed in the tables below.
For the duration of the photo competition we will not be awarding a points bonus to those who do the judging. If one or more of the usual judges wishes to enter the competition, other judges are ready to step in to award points to their pieces. This isn’t possible in a live judging situation.
Points are awarded as follows: 10 points for 1st, 9 for 2nd, 8 for 3rd, 7 for 4th, 6 for 5th and 4 for any remaining.
