The RPS National Audio Visual Championships will be held this year on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September.

The Championships are to be held at Leeds Trinity University (LS18 5HD), a compact university, outside and north-west of Leeds city centre, offering easy parking and a modern and comfortable auditorium with refreshment facilities (see pictures below). 

There are a number of hotels nearby, as well as Leeds/Bradford Airport (should you wish to fly up). The nearest hotel is the Premier Leeds/Bradford Airport Hotel. As has happened at the previous Nationals and Internationals, attendees are expected to make their own accommodation arrangements.

We anticipated plenty of entries and have received 70. Fortunately we will be able to shoehorn all of them into the projection times available, so there will be no pre-judging. We will start on Saturday at 10:00am and run through until around 5:30pm. As in the past, the RPS AV Group AGM will be held on Saturday, starting at 6:00pm. We will be having a Championships dinner on Saturday in a local restaurant, pre-booking of meals, from their entire menu, will unfortunately be necessary due to numbers.

Sunday projection will start at 10:00am and run through until mid afternoon, followed by judging and presentation of awards. We would hope to finish by around 5:30pm

Our judges this year are Martin Fry (England), Marion Waine (Wales) and James Hamill (Northern Ireland), who I'm sure you'll agree, will form an experienced and excellent jury.

Entries are now closed, but we will still accept bookings to attend up to the date of the Championships, including payment on the door without pre-booking. Lunches however must be booked by September 6th. To download the rules or booking forms, please click on the appropriate links at the top of this page.

Bookings can either be sent by post, or downloaded electronically. Full details are in the rules and on the entry/booking forms.
