There are three cash prizes of £1000, £500 and £100 and a further three Awards of Merit. The Competition is always a keenly anticipated event at the Convention and takes place on the Saturday morning, with the various prizes being announced and awarded on the Sunday.
The lucky winner also receives an invitation to attend the FFFF Convention in America as well, which, as this event now is by invitation only and has a long waiting list for possible attendees, is considered worth more than the cash and the trophy by some of the past winners.
