SELECTION PROCESS AND CRITERIA

There shall be three Judges. The decision of the Judges will be final. Selection will be based solely on the merit and presentation of submission.

BCCHS, at its discretion, may decline to make an award if in the opinion of the Judges, no entry meets a minimum standard. Awards may be made in any category, not necessarily one in each category.

WRITTEN ENTRIES

Written entries should be double spaced and no longer than 1500 words. Illustrations integral to the presentation will be welcomed. Presentation, grammar, spelling and punctuation will be among the criteria used in judging written submission. Previously published work will not be acceptable.

Computer generated graphics and any work involving any tracing will not be eligible. All work must be presented in a form suitable for display. Paintings, drawings or photographs must be mounted on board, or if on canvas, mounted on a stretcher. Work should not have been previously published.

COWBOY CRAFTS

Cowboy crafts must be usable by cowboys, or their horses. Examples include saddles, bridles, bits, spurs and items braided in rawhide or horsehair.

The standards used in judging entries are high. Entries which fail to directly address the subject of our BC Cowboy Heritage will not be considered.
