Good evening Natalie,  I have grown blues as a novelty quite some years ago and I found them very tasty and the sprogs of relatives still remember them.
I would aproach the organisers for a definitive answer.

Cheers,  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Welcome to the forums

I can't find a definitive answer, either. The RHS page on vegetables for exhibition only mentions the white / coloured categories.

Unless you have access to the RHS judging guide on spuds, I agree with Klefti that only the organisers of the show can give a definitive answer.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Notes from the The Royal Horticultural Show Handbook...
Potatoes -page 10,  in collections (6) for single dishes (5).
Potatoes - page 39, Freedom from skin blemishes which may be caused by pests, diseases or careless handling is essential.  The tubers should be very carefully washed in ample, clean water with a soft sponge, on no account use a rough cloth or brush.  Stage the plates with the rose end outwards, cover with a cloth to exclude the light until the gudging commences.

Potatoes - page 62,  maximum points (20).
Potatoes - page 81, Meritorious  Medium-sized of generally between 170g and 225g per tuber, shapely, clean, clear skinned tubers, eyes few and shallow.  Defective Tubers that are very small or very large or miss-shapen or have damaged, speckeled or patch skins or have many or deep eyes.

And finally,  Suggestions for schedule-makers.  Potatoes, white of any shape.  Potatoes, other than white, of any shape.

Best wishes in the show,  The schedule I have is quite old and things may have changed.
Cheers,  Tony.
