  • Each nomination should be supported and endorsed by two JudoScotland Member Clubs and;
  • Each individual nomination should take the form of a ‘pen portrait’ of the candidate.

Pen Portrait Submission

In previous years, we have been asked for broad guidance around the submission of the ‘pen portrait’ for aspirant members of the Board. To look towards ensuring uniformity and equality, we would appreciate that any submitted ‘pen portraits’ do not exceed two (2) pages of A4 paper in length.

Aspirant Board members can submit a document of their own design, or alternatively, we have supplied a pro-forma template that individuals may wish to utilise and submit:
