Knockout Print Competition – 16th April

This will be our Fifth Knockout Print Competition.  A fun evening and an opportunity for all members to enter their prints without any critical judge’s comments.

Instead of an external judge prints are judged by club members.  Prints will be presented in pairs to members in turn.  The member then has to decide which one they like best.  The losing print is then discarded.  The process continues until all prints have been presented.

The process then repeats with the remaining prints until 3 prints remain.

The remaining prints are displayed to allow all members to vote for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places.

Rules for the Competition can be found below…
