Who Can Enter: Anyone can enter the QSMC, with as many models, in as many categories as is desired.
Competition Category Selection:
It is now the responsibility of the competition participant to select the correct category for their entries. Any model found to be entered in the wrong category will be disqualified from that category’s judging process. The chief judge has the sole authority to move an incorrect entered model to its correct category without notice. If you are unsure as to what category your entry should be entered in as, please email the competition secretary with your queries. If on the night you wish to confirm an entries category, the Competition Secretary, Chief Judge or the on duty scrutineer will be able to assist, this will require the model being viewed and accessed accordingly.
