To ensure fairness and encourage participation the committee drew up the following rules which were approved by members at the December 2011 meeting.
Acceptance of an entry in the competition is conditional on acceptance of the following rules.
- The committee’s decision on all matters relating to the competition is final and binding.
- The competition is for members of the East Central Chapter only, although members of other Chapters may affiliate to East Central on payment of €18 and become eligible to enter our competitions.
- Items by visiting Guild members that are ineligible for the competition may be displayed on the day. Open events are available of course to all Guild members.
- One entry per person is allowed although other items may be displayed.
- The specification for each competition will be made known at least one month in advance
- Entries to the competition must be original, the work of the member submitting the piece and without any identification marks.
- Competition items must not have been entered in a previous East Central monthly competition.
- Judging will be done, as far as possible, by the demonstrator unless he or she has submitted an entry and is a member of this Chapter. In the latter case the committee will make alternative arrangements
- Each entry will be awarded 5 points. The winner will receive an additional 10 points and the remainder as follows: second 8 points, third 6, and fourth 4, fifth 2, and sixth 1.
- To determine the overall winner for the year the accumulation of the monthly scores to a maximum of 10 months will be totted up. Should anyone have entered more than 10 times the lowest of the scores will be ignored to bring the total entries back to 10
- The monthly winner and yearly overall winner will each receive a certificate
