Open Competition

The open style competition is different from a normal podium-based competition meaning exhibitors are judged and competing against the show standards, not their peers. Teams of judges will each look at an exhibitors display in a given category, and collectively assess which piece represents the highest quality entry by that artist. That piece is then judged against the category criteria, and awarded a medal if earned. That means there could be any number of Gold, Silver, or Bronze awards per category. This system is designed to foster encouragement and growth in the hobby instead of a competitive atmosphere.

How to Enter

Simply download the entry form and fill out the details (one form per entry). Print them out and bring them to the show and place on the table with your models. Forms will also be available at the show.

Please take a moment to review the rules and determine which category your entry fits into.

When you are setting up your display please make good use of the table space. There are many models to fit on the tables so please keep your display compact.
