Awards

80 Awards total!

 

In each Section (8 Sections in all):

  • 1 PSA Gold Medal (Best of Show)
  • 1 S4C Gold Award
  • 2 S4C Silver Award
  • 3 S4C Bronze Awards
  • 3 Judge's Choice Awards

and Honorable Mentions according to judges.

 

Except for the PSA Gold Medals, all Awards and Honorable Mentions will be distributed electronically in the form of handsome digital certificates - that may be printed locally or stored electronically. 

 

Delays and losses associated with international mailings and the steep rising costs of postage have driven us in this direction. Many entrants have also told us that they prefer this form of recognition since the certificates provide new and more convenient ways to store their results either in digital files or in binders when printed; hang the printed certificates on their walls; and  share their successes online with family and friends!
