Guild Challenge Trophy Rules

The Challenge Trophy is awarded annually at the AGM.

The winner gets a prize of £250.

The Challenge Trophy is a competition where you put together a portfolio of around ten to twelve pictures of a piece of work that you have completed in the previous 12 months.

This is normally in the form of a picture story album to show how you dealt with an interesting piece of traditional upholstery.

Entries may be forwarded to any member of the committee for judging on the day.

Your pictures should show:

  • Before work began
  • After ripping out
  • Work in progress
  • The completed piece (several views)

All entries remain anonymous.

This competition is open to all paid up Guild members.
