November 7th Knockout Results and AGM Reminder

November 7th Knockout Results

The results of the first Knockout are in! We had a very strong entry with 23 contestants across multiple categories. Thank you to all judges and competitors for taking part.

The next Knockout is on January 16th. Registration is now open.

Remember! If you missed the first Knockout, that doesn’t mean you can’t compete in the next ones. Points accumulate across the entire series, so you could still qualify for the finals if you take part in the next events.
