At our last awards presentation evening. Some new trophies were presented replacing ones that were either full (of winners' names) or damaged. As it would be a shame if the names of those recipients engraved on the trophies were to be lost. They have been photographed, annotated and they appear as a final entry in the GALLERY section of this site. Just click on GALLERY and go to the bottom.

This is a new feature which will update throughout the year. All the competitions that contribute to the Print or PDI of the year trophy receive scores that are totalled so that the highest scorer can easily be established. We have preserved your anonymity by just using Competitor Number as the identifier!
