Each participant must obligatorily proceed to the registration of his model with the admissibility’s personnel within the indicated deadlines.

The persons in charge of the admissibility at the time of the recording will not be members of the jury but will have sufficient bases modelers to determine this choice.

A mediator will intervene between the admissibility department, the jury and the participants in order to resolve any differences of opinion.

• "SPA 162 Tigre" Category which will gather the achievements of a beginner level.
• In these categories, depending on the number of models presented and their subjects, subcategories could be opened either by scale or by type of subject.

Article 4: Composition of the jury
The jury will be composed of volunteer jurors who will be selected based on their historical knowledge or their mastery of modeling. A "candid" juror will bring an outside view of a non-specialist and his vote will be as valid as that of the other jurors.

The composition of the jury will be known only to the mediator. The latter can reveal the composition of the jury only when the results are announced.

No juror will be able to avail himself of his quality with the exhibitors and the competitors before the awarding of the prizes.
