Competition Competition

One of the
MathsJam activities
Tradition now dictates that we have a "Competition Competition" at the MathsJam weekend.

Attendees are invited to submit a competition, which the other attendees can enter, and then the competitions are judged as to which is the best.

Arrangements will be made for participants joining remotely to be able to both enter competitions into the competition competition, and (where appropriate) to enter the competitions within the competition competition.

Entries to the Competition Competition must be in the form of an A5 photocopied sheet, single-sided and printed in black and white.

If your competition is also suitable for participants joining remotely, you should additionally email a PDF of your entry form to, and we will add it to an online entry form in the virtual Jam space. If this is not practical due to the nature of your competition, you do not need to send a PDF.

For both

As with all the competitions, when you submit your entry, please inform an organiser so they can mark down who has submitted what, but please leave your entry anonymous. Entries to the individual competitions within the competition competition should not be anonymous, and you should include space for entrants to write their name.

Entries received to the online version of the competition will be actualised by our team of trained enterers, and a physical version posted into the box, with everything from the online entry duplicated via the medium of pens, before the close of competitions. Competitors who have entered competitions into the competition competition will be given time to judge their competitions, and will have the chance to award the prize (or announce the winner if it was a remote entry, and arrangements can be made to deliver the prize if so).

There will be three prizes for the competition competition:

The judging panel will be chosen randomly[+] from non-competition-entering MathsJam attendees.
