The SPF Digital Championship is a club competition open to projected digital images (PDIs), held in November each year. It is judged in front of an audience by three judges. Entries are submitted in advance by the club. Club and individual awards are made. After two rounds the top 8 Clubs contest the Final, the remaining clubs contest the Plate Trophy. The top two clubs from the Final are invited to represent the SPF at the PAGB Digital Championship (click here) held the following July.
All SPF Club Members can attend this event whether you, or your club, have entered the competition. The cost of admission to the event is £5. No pre-booking is required. Come along to a great day and see over 700 Projected Images from all over Scotland.
