With the exception of the Regular Competition, for which winners are awarded a trophy retained only until the next round, winners of competitions are awarded a trophy to keep for a year. The winner’s name is engraved on the trophy and they also have the option of purchasing a small trophy as reminder of their win.

For members who don’t win individual competitions there is still the chance to collect a trophy as either overall print worker, overall digital worker or even both! These are awarded to the member who has the highest combined scores from the year’s competitions in the relevant category. If you find yourself a consistent entrant you might find yourself with a trophy!

Members’ images are also submitted for battles with other clubs and inter-club competitions. Members that choose to can also submit images for the L&CPU folios.
