Open AV and Photo Harmony

AVs entered in the Open AV competition will be judged using internationally accepted criteria, where the quality and appropriateness of the images and the sound track, how those two interrelate and of the concept/production, will all contribute to the overall judgment.

AVs entered in the Photo Harmony competition will only be judged on the quality of the images, the harmonious way they transition from one to the next and how those transitions relate to the sound track used. Any other features of the AV, such as a story line, narration, graphics or text, will not add any credit to the entry, though they will not penalise it.


The winner of the Open AV competition will be awarded the 'Tom Prince Trophy'; the winner of the Photo Harmony competition will be awarded the 'Howard & Carole Bagshaw Trophy'. In each competition the judges will also award MCPF medals to the first and runner-up AVs. Each of the three judges will also award a 'highly commended' MCPF ribbon for their choice in each competition. Commendations may also be given at the discretion of the judges.

Audience Popular Vote (The Martin Fry Trophy)
The 'Martin Fry Trophy' will be awarded to the AV, across both competitions, which the audience present at the Championships, judge to be their favourite.
