The National Contest

The IPMS/USA national contest, conducted during the national convention, is open to any current IPMS/USA, or international IPMS, member. Members must also be registered for the convention - adult, junior, or proxy - in order to participate in the contest.

Registered members may enter as many models/builds as they wish in the current contest. Registration of entries is required and may be conducted in-person at the contest registration desk at the convention. Contest forms are available for download below. They may be filled out before a member arrives or may be filled out on site. We will have blank entry forms on hand at the contest registration station. Those with oversized or group/club/collection entries are encouraged to contact our contest manager, Tom Moon, in order to ensure adequate room is planned for your entry(ies).
