My fellow modellers over at MACforums have just announced the first Europe Gunpla Cup. Strictly for our European friends, MACforums will be hosting this competition and rules are as follows:
All entrants must live within Europe. Simply having an origin of Europe does not qualify you to enter. "Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom"
Entrants may enter kits previously made prior to start date of competition. Also kits completed after start date are accepted. No form of BOOTLEG kits may be entered. Entry of such a kit will result in disqualification.
Entrants may enter into as many categories as they so choose and as many kits as they see fit. Passing off other peoples work as your own will result in disqualification of all entries made by that person which will be followed by a disqualification. Entrants must be able to provide some form of "Work In Progress" at the judges request. This is for clarification purposes. (WIP Only needs to be shown if judges ask).
All entries must be submitted within the MAC Forums: board.themacforums.com. Visit the section labeled "EU-GC Entries" and create a thread under the relevant category "Diorama", "Customized" and "Straight Build Painted".
