The main Judges will award numbers 1 – 5, number 6 is judged and awarded by John Trott.
Once the judges have decided the award, it will be placed with the tree and photographed with the owner, there is no Presentation Ceremony, saving time so the visitors can view the displays for longer and allowing the awards to be on the tables soonest, so the visitors to the show know which display has won what. Awards of Merit may also be placed on the tables with the appropriate display.
