COSTUME COMPETITION SKILL DIVISIONS
In the interest of fairness, and to allow for the best possible competition among peers, we have separate divisions for entrants based on skill and experience. This is to ensure that both novice and experienced costumers have a reasonably equal chance to win awards in the Costume Competition. The divisions include: Master – Journeyman – Novice – Junior/Youth. A competitor may always choose to compete in a higher division than that in which the costume competition director has placed him or her. He or she may not choose to compete in a lower division.

Commissioned costumes (paying a person to make your costume), or costumes which have been created by a person not at the event with the entrant may be classified as Uncertified, as long as the creator of the costume is available to speak with judges and go over the costume creation via Google Hangouts during pre-judging. Costumes entered as uncertified are eligible for consideration in the following award categories: Best in Show, Con Chair Spotlight, Best Individual: Uncertified and Best Group: Uncertified. If the creator of the costume in unavailable to speak with judges, the entrant will only be able to enter as an Exhibition Costume and therefore only eligible for a judges award.

Master:
(a) Any competitor may enter the Master division

Journeyman:

(a) Professional (Master) costumers may not enter as a Journeyman
(b) A contestant who has competed and won in the Master division at another major competition in the past may not enter in the Journeyman division.
(c) A contestant who has won Best Journeyman at another major competition may not enter the Journeyman division.
(d) A contestant who has won more than three major awards in the Journeyman division at other major competitions may not enter in the Journeyman division.
(e) Minor awards may be counted towards placement at the discretion of the costumer.

Novice:

(a) Professional (Journeyman or Master) costumers may not enter the Novice division
(b) A contestant who has competed and won in any division other than novice at another major competition may not enter in the Novice division.
(c) A contestant who has won Best in Show or Best Novice at another major competition may not enter the Novice division.
(d) A contestant who has won more than three major awards at other major Competitions (in either the novice division or a non division event) may not enter in the Novice division.
(e) Minor awards may be counted towards placement at the discretion of the costumer.

Junior/Youth:

(a) The Junior/Youth division is for any child under age 13
(b) A child wearing a costume designed and built entirely by an adult should be entered either in the adult’s appropriate skill division or entered as an exhibition (out of competition piece). We wish to encourage creativity among the junior division in an effort to help them grow into accomplished costumers.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR GROUPS: Each member of the group must note which skill division they belong to on the costume competition entry form. Group members may belong to any skill division. The judges will use their discretion to determine which skill division to judge the group as a whole.

AWARDS: All awards, with the exception of the Con Chair Spotlight and Judges Awards will be chosen by majority vote of the Judging Committee. The Con Chair Spotlight will be chosen by the Convention Chairman at his discretion. Judges awards will be chosen by the individual judges.
