The British Sundial Society is pleased to announce its sixth awards scheme for excellent sundials. The only requirement is that the dials must have been made or restored between January 2016 and December 2020; otherwise this is an open competition.

Entries in the form of one or more photographs and a brief description are invited from amateurs, professionals, members and non-members, from the UK and overseas. Awards (in the form of certificates) will be made for new sundials and for sundial restoration projects, and for entries from juniors, schools and other youth groups.

Please send entries to Doug Bateman in the form of emails and attachments. Entries must be submitted by 31st December 2020.

Entries must be in digital form and will appear on the BSS website. Items submitted are subject to moderation. Judging will be by the Society and will take into account comments posted on the website. The results will be announced at the 2021 BSS conference.

Four examples submitted last time are shown above. The Society particularly welcomes entries from schools and colleges, so please encourage any school or college that you think might be interested.
