So as part of our show we always offer a FUN competition. This year we have upated the rules and categories slightly, so please take a look at the changes. We are always open to feedback, and have thought carefully about what we would like to see in a competition at any club. Hopefully, you will find the changes beneficial as well.
Entries in to the competition will be anonymous, as it is a judgement on individual models.
Models are to be entered for judging before 12 noon. Any models bought along after maybe turned away dependant on the organisers wishes on the day.
The judges’ decisions are final; any ill will directed at judges will not be tolerated. The competition is intended to be fun, and to show off your model.
All creators of the model must be named on the entry form.
Any model not securely attached to its base must be marked clearly with the words ‘model unsecured’ so that accidental damage is avoided if the model is moved.
The organisers reserve the right to move any model and its base in order to make more room or to photograph once placed by the competitor.
While every effort will be made to make sure your models are returned to you in the same condition they were placed into the competition, accidents do happen, and judges cannot be held responsible if a model is damaged.
A junior modeller is under 16, and can enter any category should they choose to.
As the junior category is judged independently, any junior, even those of the club can enter.
Results will be announced as early as possible and we ask competitors not to remove your models before 3.30pm so they can be photographed for publicity etc.
Any queries of rules must be put to the competitions organisers prior to judging.
Entering a model into any class will be deemed an acceptance of the rules.
Failure to adhere to the rules may result in disqualification and will be the decision of the organisers on the day.
Lastly please have fun! After all it is a hobby we all enjoy. No bad will is intended and so none is expected.
