2020/21 Monthly Painting Competition Temporary rules effective from September 2020 with a review in December.

ENTRIES OPEN NOW closing date Sunday 4th October 2020

With the restriction still in place we have reviewed the rules in a way that we hope will encourage more members to enter the competition and also to encourage previous winners to continue to support the competition.

Following on from the success and popularity of having three prizes each month. It has been decided to continue this situation until we can meet for our Monthly demo in person. To encourage as many members as possible to participate we will split the competition into two groups.

 

NEW Group 1: Any prize winners from the previous year plus prize winners from the current year 2020/21, entering a picture will compete in this Group, which will be judged in the normal way 5 votes from 5 committee judges resulting in 3 pictures available for members to select their favorite, by voting by email.
