A large number of readers and forum members contributed to a trophy in memory of John Stevenson to be “Awarded for Excellence in Practical and Useful Workshop Equipment”. In 2018 after a vote by forum embers the trophy was awarded to John Ashton.

This year we are simplifying the competition process. Any reader or forum member may enter their own work. A short list will then be prepared by the organisers, so that award of the cup can be judged by a popular vote. Voting will be via a poll on the forum and open to all.

The winner will be announced and awarded the John Stevenson Trophy at the National Model Engineering Exhibition in Doncaster in May 2019.

Entries must be emailed to neil.wyatt@mytimemedia.com no later than 20 April 2019.

Naturally, we have to have some formal rules for the competition, these are:

All entries must be a piece of practical workshop equipment i.e. a tool, jig, fixture or a modification to or accessory for an existing piece of equipment. One entry per person.

All entries to the competition must be your own work (commercial parts are allowable) and not have been entered to the competition before.

A short list of entries will be selected by the competition organisers, a group of people who knew John and are familiar with his views on workshop equipment.

Criteria for inclusion on the shortlist will be that the tooling is practical and capable of being used for accurate work in a home workshop setting. It should demonstrate ingenuity, good design, economical use of materials and be appropriately finished for its function.

By entering you confirm your permission to feature the entry in the magazines or on the forum. If practical, you will be invited to display your entry at the National Model Engineering Exhibition in Doncaster.

The winner will be selected by a popular vote by forum members. Readers who join the forum in order to vote will be allowed to do so. Voting will be strictly one vote per person.

In the event that the judges consider invalid votes have been cast or that an attempt has been made to unduly influence the result of the vote any questionable votes will be disregarded or entries may be disqualified.

The trophy will remain the property of the competition organisers. The winner will take responsibility for ensuring safekeeping of the trophy until the next exhibition. The trophy must be returned in good condition, in the supplied packaging, in good time for award to the winner of the subsequent competition.

The winner may arrange for their name and the year of the award to be professionally engraved on the base of the trophy at their own cost.

No alternative prizes, cash payments or awards will be made. In all matters relating to the competition, decisions made by the organisers are final.

Hi Emgee,

Sorry, I missed your post.

I just need a description of the device and some photos, ideally with a reference to where it appeared in MEW or a link to it on the forum.

I've been asked to clarify the entry process:

Please email me a few photos and a short description - for fairness I will use one photo and a short description of each entry.

If the entry has appeared in the magazine or on the forum, remind me where and I will 'signpost' this for people wanting more details.

If it hasn't I suggest you post some photos and perhaps a bit of extra information in a thread on the forum.

At the start of May I will create a thread showcasing all the entries with a poll for forum members to vote for the winner.

I already have over half a dozen entries so far, but it would be nice to have more, and this year they will all go to the vote.

Feel free to email me if you have any queries. neil.wyatt@mytimemdia.com

Thanks and good luck

Neil
