Enter the competition or participate as volunteers, judges, or apprentice judges

Competition gives you an opportunity to display your treasures and works of art. As part of the fun, each entry will be judged and awarded ribbons as appropriate. The key to succeeding in competition is to ensure your entry fits the category. Along with convention's traditional categories, we have a few new categories to pique your interest. We also have exclusive First Timers' categories to help competition newcomers make the leap into competition.

Features in this year's competition room include a security guard who will be on duty when the entries are placed in the competition room, throughout the viewing hours, and until the end of scheduled picked up.

Volunteers will also help watch, as well as guide you through the competition.

Conventioneers get to vote and choose a People's Choice Award in the Vintage, Mix and Match and Creative Categories.

We encourage ALL conventioneers to stop by, see all the entries, and cast your vote.
During competition viewing: No purses, totes, or bags of any kind will be allowed in the competition room. We recommend you leave your things in your room or take turns with a trusted friend while you are viewing the competition room.

We are looking forward to a record number of entries to showcase and hope everyone will take the opportunity to join us in the fun.

Come join the fun whether you are a veteran or are ready to take the plunge to enter for the first time.
