    Following the success of the 2005 Society of Bookbinders
    Biennial Competition, entries are invited for the next
    competition, which will coincide with the Society's Conference
    during the summer of 2007. Entries can be made in one or more of
    the four categories listed. Anyone can enter--members and
    non-members, whether in the UK or overseas.

    Winning entries will be announced at the Society's Biennial
    Education and Training Conference which is being held at the
    University of York, 9-12 August 2007.

    Awards will be presented at the Conference dinner on the evening
    of 11 August, to which all winners will be invited. Selected
    entries will be exhibited at the conference venue for the
    duration, after which they will be further exhibited at regional
    venues, including Manchester Central Library and George Bayntun
    of Bath. Dates for each of the regional venues are still being

    The prizes for this competition will be awarded in the form of
    cash, goods or vouchers. Prizes totaling UKP5050 were awarded to
    the 16 prizewinners of the 2005 Competition.

    All prospective entrants should register their intention to
    enter the competition by completing the registration form found


    and returning it, together with the appropriate fee, by 1 May
    2007. It would assist Society's funds if you were to enclose a
    stamped self-addressed envelope (UK only).

    The closing date for the submission of bindings is 1 June 2007.
    Work arriving after this date can only be considered for judging
    at the organizer's discretion. All UK entries must be sent by
    Royal Mail Special Delivery service. Details will be sent with
    the acknowledgement of registration. Overseas entries may be
    dispatched by post or carrier.

    Entrants who submit work into the competition do so in the
    knowledge that if their work is selected for an award, it will
    need to be retained by the Society for the traveling exhibition
    and will only be returned following the final venue.

    All correspondence, including registration and entry forms and
    submission of work, should be addressed to:
