Contest rules and classes

Competitors can register any number of model kits in any applicable category. The organizers reserve the right to merge categories, as well as the right to reclassify model kits to more applicable categories.

Entries in each category will be judged by a select committee of experienced modellers. Judging will be based on the best subjective impression made on the judges. The results published by the judges are final and irrevocable. Judges are not permitted to touch the displayed models.

There is no rule defining the number of awarded model kits within a category – the number of models awarded within a category is at the discretion of the committee of judges. Should the judges decide that there are no worthy entries in a category, then it is possible that no prizes will be awarded in that category. Competitors can win only one award in each category.

The organizers reserve the right to withdraw or disqualify any entry if they consider it to be in any respect offensive or in bad taste.

Registered model kits will be available for pick-up following the awarding of prizes at the close of the exhibition at 16:30.

The organizers reserve the right to photograph any model entered in the MODELLBRNO contest and use all such photos for promotional purposes.

No registration fee will be charged.
