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.
