Cash prizes of $500,$250 and $100 will be awarded to those pieces judged to be worthy of 1st,2nd and 3rd place rankings. A prestigeous trophy will bear the name of the first place winner and will be on public display year round.

    The organizers of this competition have been working hard to encourage our U.S.taxidermist friends to join us April 11-12,2014 in Kingsville,Ontario.Thus far the response to this invatation has been anything but encouraging. In an effort to promote the participation of taxidermist from both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border information related to the following is readily available. (1) cross border travel (2) transporting mounted waterfowl back and forth across the border (3) competition details. (4) travel direction. Please be kind enough to share some of the reasons U.S. taxidermist are reluctant to be a part of this event. In that way the organizers of this competition might be able to identify and remove some of the obstacles presently discouraging involment . Thank you.

    smalliestalker and a river runs through it.

    from Vincer (tho not Vincer15) ..." And you would think that the Canadian taxidermist on this site would support something in their own country. "

    You asked the same about fellow Canadians after last year's event, when there were 18 total entries. Maybe similar reasons?
