It is acceptable for attendees to submit their buildup kit(s) for the exhibit and request that they NOT be included in the contest. Contest entries may include any custom painted model kit that celebrates movies, TV, comic books, video games, or fiction in general. This includes figures, busts, vehicles, dioramas, and “one of a kind” pieces. It includes Horror, Superheros/Villains, Sc-Fi, Mecha, Fantasy, Anime, Gundam, etc.
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be given for selected entries as decided by the judges (i.e., “open judging system”). There are no categories for these awards and no competing between modelers. However, there will be categories for kids (12 and under) and teenagers.
In addition, there will be “Supplemental Awards” where contestants will compete for trophies and can win awesome kits as prizes.
