Even with increasing the prize award from $1,000 to $1,500 for the Pritchard Prize for Excellence in Watch Repair and Restoration, we have only two entries with a deadline of January 31 for notice of interest, with all materials to be submitted by April 1.
The competition is funded by The Pritchard Fund, a bequest of the late Kathleen Pritchard through the estate of her husband, Wilbur L. Pritchard. Competition for the prize is open to any horologist - hobbyist or professional. The submitter does not need to be a member of the NAWCC or any other horological association.
Interested persons can find a copy of the rules at http://www.nawcc.org/images/stories/...Rules_2015.pdf.
