Competition results are taken into account in the decision to promote members through the various sections i.e. Novice > Intermediate > Advanced. Overall winners for each  category in the year are presented with SPS awards.


In  Monthly Competitions only points are awarded per section as follows:

  • First Place                5 points

  • Second Place           4 points

  • Third Place               3 points

  • Highly Commended 2 points

  • Commended            1 points


Results in the Nature Competition and Members Annual Competition stand alone and so are not counted in any annual results. However, winners in these competitions do receive SPS awards.

Please click on the links below to view current year Competition results as the competitions progress throughout the year.


Please note that we do not display historical results. After the AGM, and before the next competition each year, the current year's results will be cleared making way for the results of the new years competitions.

The Annual Members Exhibition and the Annual Nature Competition results will remain online for approximately twelve months until just before the next seasons equivalent competitions take place.
