Virtual Christmas Competition 2020.

We would like to thank each and everyone that entered the Home Counties Christmas Competition. Well done to everyone for your wonderful designs!

There were 37 entries in total which were judged anonymously. Below are the photos of the winners. We are also very grateful to Lesley Sturdy for judging our first on-line competition. Lesley is a NAFAS Associate of Honour and a National Judge. She recently became an official Assessor for Judges’ Tests so we are very privileged to have her judge our Area Competition. She has written the following letter to all who took part:

“Well done to all of you, just looking at the range and ideas brightened my day. Thank you all for having a go. It was so good to see entries from across the Area. I am sure that all who see them will be inspired and when we have another competition will also have a go as this way we all learn from each other. Have a look at the National Competition schedule when it comes out – there is one class solely for those who have not entered before but you can also enter the other classes!

My best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Lesley Sturdy
