The format of the competition is unchanged: the method of delivering it will be an adventure!


This competition is normally held in April.

The competition is for club entries of 5 coloured prints (plus 1 tie breaker). There are 5 rounds. In each round the judge eliminates some prints. The prints eliminated in the first round score 1 point. If they are eliminated in the second round they scores 2 points, and so on to round 5. The judge awards one print, the one he considers to be the best, 6 points.

The club with the most points at the end wins the trophy; the 6thprint comes into play if there is a tie.

This competition is for colour prints only. The original sponsors were  A. Foster and Son Ltd. (established in 1947 by Albert Foster as a photo processing lab). They asked that this competition be for colour prints only.
