Regional Day Competition 2018

Dear Members, 
We have been asked to clarify the criteria for the judging of the Regional Day Members’ Competition. This competition is traditionally judged by the Speaker of the Day and the Representative from HQ, with the Regional Chair overseeing the process.
No criteria has ever been set down for this Competition other than a response to the title given. The amount of ‘embroidery’ within a piece and what that ‘embroidery’ is has always been up to a member’s interpretation.
Contemporary textile art now covers a vast range of techniques and is not necessarily all stitchery. Good design and visual impact also have to be taken into account.
The ‘Inspiration and Ideas’ for the Competition written by Carolyn Merry is only that. It is up to members to choose whether they follow these or take their own route to a piece of work. These suggestions are not referred to by the judges.
To involve members more it has been decided by the Regional Committee to revise the three prizes awarded to:

                                                 First.  Highly Commended.  Members’ Choice.
