Gloucester Inter Club Film Competition

For the Ray Toleman Memorial Trophy for Best Film

and the Vale Trophy for Best Sound

History of the competition

A meeting was convened in 1967 for all the cine clubs in the area to arrange an inter-club competition and the Gloucester Cine Club donated a modest plaque, calling it  “The Gloucester Cine Trophy”

In 1972 The Vale Cine Club  donated a trophy, to be called ““The Vale Sound Trophy”  to be won by the club entry which, in the opinion of the judges, made the best use of sound.

In 1973, in view of the stature which the competition had attained, the Gloucester Club felt that a more worthy trophy should be commissioned.

A bronze sculpture of unique shape designed and created by Mrs Diane Smith,  a teacher at Gloucestershire College of Art and Design, was cast by a Cheltenham foundry .

It was named the Ray Toleman Trophy in memory of the late Secretary and founder member of the Gloucester Club.  

The competition continues to this day and clubs located in Gloucestershire and nearby are invited to join by a committee composed of members of the participating clubs.
