After taking into account a variety of feedback, the BSNSW Show Committee has decided that the BSNSW Champion Exhibitor Competition will not continue after the completion of the current competition at the end of 2014.
In response to requests for greater recognition for variety breeders, a new "BSNSW Inc Members Best of Variety in Show Competition" will commence from 1st January 2015.
The rules and conditions of the new competition are:
- Competition is open to BSNSW Inc members only.
- Competition will run for twelve months from 1st January to 31st December.
- This is solely a Best of Variety competition. There will be no aggregation of points across varieties.
- Shows eligible for this competition:
- BSNSW Inc Annual Show (double points)
- All Branches of BSNSW Inc Annual Shows and Young Bird Shows
- Combined BSNSW Inc Branches Annual Shows and Young Bird Shows
- Affiliated Clubs or Societies Annual Shows and Young Birds Shows
- One (1) point will be awarded to the Best in Show of each variety (with double points (2) - being awarded at the BSNSW Inc Annual Show.)
- At the completion of each Show all results are to be sent to the BSNSW Show Manager, as is currently required.
- If any show does not select an overall "Best of Variety", no points will be allocated for that show - there will be no split points.
- At Young Bird Shows there will need to be an overall Best of Variety in Show selected for purposes of this competition. There is no requirement that an award/prize given out by the show for this, just that the overall BOV is shown in the results sent to the BSNSW Show Manager.
- The exhibitor with the most points accumulated over the term of the competition, in each variety, will be the winner for that variety and will be presented with their award at the following BSNSW Inc Annual Show.
