[BKARTS] Society of Bookbinders International Competition 2009

Dear Binder,

We are delighted to inform you that following the success of the 2007 Society of Bookbinders International Competition, entries are invited for the next competition, which will coincide with the Society’s Conference at Warwick University during the summer of 2009. If you yourself are not interested in the contents of this email, please feel free to forward it to someone you feel might be.

We have made some changes to the competition this year. There is no longer a registration fee, which we know caused many people without sterling bank accounts problems. Another change is that the Restoration and Conserved binding category has been altered to include Period bindings.

Details of how to enter can be found at the following link
(http://www.societyofbookbinders.com/events/events_frames.html) where a registration form can be downloaded. Please feel free to attach your registration form to an email and send it to _StuBrockman@xxxxxxxx

There are many reasons to enter the SoB International Competition - here are just some:
Prestigious event with worldwide entries
No set book - bind what you like!
4 categories to chose from
Large prize fund
2 top prizes of £1000 each
Wherever possible, all bindings are exhibited at conference and then the winning bindings participate in a travelling exhibition around the UK.

We are pleased to let you know that due to the generosity of the following companies and individuals the prize fund is currently between £5000 and £6000.
