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 4th December 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 5th December 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 5th December 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 consider and respond to.

All bidding is paused from 6.0pm on December 4th - 10.0am on Sunday 5th.

At 7.00pm on Saturday all prices will have been updated on the website so that you can check the position of Lots that you have bid on. If there have been no bids then these Lots will be marked "Result n/s" and that item has finished. If there was only one bidder the Lot will be marked "Result xx" with the Price that it was Sold at.  If there was more than one bidder then the Lot remains open for FINAL DAY Bids on Sunday. This will be marked "Latest xx" with the Current leading Price. 

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 5th.

SESSION 2
This starts at 10.0am on Sunday 5th December and runs until 12.0 noon. Bidding stops until 12.30 while the site is fully updated with any bids received during this period. YOU MAY PLACE ONE INCREASED BID ON A LOT DURING THIS PERIOD. The site will not be updated during this bidding period.

If no bids are received during Bidding Session 2 then the Lot will close and the result will be shown "Result xx". 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 12.30 "Latest xx" and the Lot will remain open for Session 3.

SESSION 3
This starts at 12.30pm on Sunday 5th December and runs until 2.0pm when the Auction finishes. YOU MAY PLACE ONE INCREASED BID ON A LOT DURING THIS PERIOD. The site will not be updated during this period. Final results will be available at 3.0pm.
