*Out-Of-The-Box Awards in These Categories

-This contest is open to all to all model builders. Entries can be plastic, wood, metal, resin, etc., but no fully pre-assembled die-cast entries.
-There will be NO sweeps in any category (one entrant will win 1st, another 2nd, and another 3rd).
-Models that have won Judges Grand Award ,  People's Choice Award, and any Best of Category in any previous CAN/AM CON are ineligible to    compete, but may be displayed.
-Judges' decisions are final in all matters. Contest judges have the right to place a model in another category, if they deem appropriate.
-Models may be displayed on simple bases. Bases will not be considered during judging, except for vignettes and dioramas.
-Neither IPMS Champlain Valley, Mount Mansfield Modelers, the Judges, Nor Plattsburgh Holiday Inn assume any liability for the loss or damage to entries.
-A junior entrant must be 15 years of age or younger.
-No reference material will be allowed on the table due to space constraints. Only exception instruction sheets from the kit for OOTB entries.
-A collection is defined as three or more closely related models which are the work of one person. The closeness of the relationship within the collection will be a factor in judging. For example, 3 versions of a Tiger tank are closer than 3 different German tanks.
-An "out-of-the-box" entry is defined as any kit constructed using only kit parts and instructions. "High Tech" kits may be entered. Please display kit instructions with your entry to qualify as OOB. (An OOB model displayed without instructions will require the judge to use their best judgment to determine if you qualify as an OOB entry.)
