ECF Awards 2017

It is now the time of year to consider who is to receive ECF Awards for the season from July 2016 until June 2017. Members are therefore now invited to submit nominations for each of the following awards.

President’s Award for Services to Chess; Congress of the Year; Club of the Year; Small Club of the Year; Chess Website of the Year

In each case, the submission should include an encomium or eulogy explaining why the proposer feels that their nomination should receive this year’s award (preferably not more than 500 words). The ECF Awards Committee will make decisions as to the recipients of these awards on the basis of these documents. There may, and is likely to be, more than one recipient for the President’s Award.  For each of the others there can only be one winner.

Nominations should be sent to me on or before 31st May, preferably by email to or by post to Paul Bielby, 30 Denham Avenue, Sunderland SR6 8HG

— Paul Bielby (Chairman, ECF Awards Committee)
