Thank you to our President Jenny Hibbert and our five assessors, Jenny Hibbert, Gary Shinner, Brian Coleman, Leigh Woolford and Ed Cloutman for their expertise and judgment in maintaining the standards that the award demands.

Thanks also to our great team of helpers, Roy Thomas on the Projector, Guy Madden for his display stand and print management, Chris Powel for the loan of his panel we use to get the judges “eye in”, Ron Lines, and Paul James for their panel management and help, Martin Nagle for his help in transportation of the equipment to and from the store in Bridgend.

Also, special thanks to Del and Susan for their brilliant work on broadcasting the event on Zoom, so all the candidates could see live, their panels being assessed and to the WPF Executive Committee for their support.

I feel the day went well but I was disappointed for those candidates whose panels failed to reach the standard required but I am grateful to the judges for maintaining the standards of this award.
