Congratulations to Sheila Tester who won last season’s International Salon Competition. She was presented with a bottle of Champagne at the club on the evening of the 15th October. The PAGB Group will run another competition this season. The rules are outlined below.

PAGB GROUP International Salon Competition 2015-2016

  • This competition is open to members of the PAGB Group only
  • There are five Salons only, these are selected by the group leaders.  All the Salons we have chosen are under the  patronage of FIAP.
  • You may enter as many sections as you wish in each Salon however only the number of acceptances in ONE section in each exhibition will be taken into account for the competition (because some people don’t enter all the classes).
  • You may choose which section you would like to count after the results are out.
  • We will give one point for an acceptance and an extra point for an award such as a medal/certificate etc.
  • When the results of all the exhibitions are known then we will add the points and present the prize!
  • This year all the Salons will take place in different countries.
  • The group leaders will not take part.
