1. How Bidding works in the Photographic Auction
   You can place a bid at any time during the auction and can increase this bid at any point until ordinary bidding on the Auction ends for new bidders on Saturday 31st July at 6.0pm. The website will be updated manually so your bid will not be shown instantly when you place your bid - however you will receive an immediate email notification to confirm that you bid has been received. The site will be regularly updated during the Auction. The
FINAL DAY Sunday 1st August 2021 will only be for existing bidders on each lot using our unique FINAL DAY Bids system. Once you have placed a bid on a Lot you are guaranteed to be able to Bid on the FINAL DAY - Sunday 1st August 2021 - on that Lot. We have introduced this to prevent new bidders bidding in the final few seconds so that other clients (often after having bid all week), don't have time to respond to. 

2. FINAL DAY Bids

  Please Note. This option is only available to bidders who have placed at least one bid on lots during the preceding six days and only on Lots that you have already bid on. NO NEW BIDDERS ON SUNDAY 1st.

At 7.00pm on Saturday all prices will be updated on the website so that you can check the position of Lots that you have bid on. If there have been no bids they will be marked "NOT SOLD". If there was only one bidder the Lot will be marked "SOLD" with the Price it was Sold at. If there were more than one bidder then the Lot remains open for FINAL DAY Bids on Sunday. This will be marked "LATEST" with the Current leading Price.

There will be three Bidding Periods on Sunday. 1) 9.0am - 12.00am 2) 12.15pm - 3.00pm 3) 3.15 - 6.00pm.

If no bids are received during Bidding Session 1 then the item will close and the result will be shown. If you are not the leading Bidder and do not bid you may lose the ability to Bid in Sessions 2 & 3.

If any bids are received during this period (an increase of upper limit by the leading bidder does not count as a new Bid) then the Updated price will be shown at 12.15 and the Lot will be open for Session 2.

If no bids are received during Bidding Session 2 then the Lot will close and the result will be shown. If you are not the leading Bidder and do not bid you may lose the ability to Bid in Session 3.

If any bids are received during this period (an increase of upper limit by the leading bidder does not count as a new Bid) then the Updated price will be shown at 3.15 and the Lot will be open for the final Session 3.

At 6.0pm on Sunday 1st August at the end of Session 3 the Auction closes and at 6.30pm all results, not complete at 3.15pm, will be updated.

Please note that prices will not be updated during the FINAL DAY sessions so there is no benefit in waiting until the final few seconds. Only after each Session is closed will the prices be updated. There will be no indication until the session has finished to show if more bids have been received.

Please note that No Unsold Lots will be available after the Auction but instead will be re-entered in a future Auction.

Invoices will be emailed out on Monday 2nd August with payment to be made via PayPal, Cheque or Bank Transfer.
