    Shall we nominate David Tuller (if he's agreeable to the idea)?

    Given that Wessely won the inaugural prize, and Crawley was praised last year, I think any nomination for Tuller would have to be done largely on the basis that the most we could reasonably expect is to try to explain to the judges how badly they've fucked up in the past.

    Someone please ask David Tuller if he will accept nomination (and fingers crossed he says yes :emoji_fingers_crossed:)

    This is not about Winning. This is about embarrassing them.

    Great idea. He deserves to win but by putting in a proper submission detailing what he's done and why, it should be an eye-opener for the Maddox people - and clearly, they need one.
