2) Registration costs Euro 20,00 per modeler, which will be cover part of the exhibit expenses.

Registration to the contest implies the acceptance of the present rules. The contest is open to all national and foreign modelers, whether they be Clubs or individual modelers.

ALFA MODEL members cannot take part in the contest.

The Organization reserves the right to reject models not compatible with the contest’s model type characteristics.

JUNIORES under 14 years of age do not need to pay for registration.

3) The contest is “OPEN” and is divided into the “STANDARD”, “MASTER” for all categories, excluding category D – Civil vehicles and dioramas, N – Nature and W – Wargame.

The “MASTER” category is open to all modelers who have already received national and international prizes; however, this doesn’t mean that other modelers who think that they may be eligible for this high-level competition may not register in this category. The Organization reserves the right to register modelers of known experience and merit as “MASTER”. It will be possible to present one’s models as a DISPLAY, the realization of which will be the modeler’s responsibility, the display occupying a max space of cm 30 length x cm 20 depth. Displays with dimensions over cm 30 x 20 need to be notified to the Organization in advance and the Organization reserves the right to reject them.

The Organization reserves the right to transfer the displays to the appropriate category, in case of incompatibility with the category chosen by the modeler.

A “diorama” is defined as a model containing at least a large vehicle or aircraft ad two figures, in an environment, while “small scene” (scenette) is defined as a model including at least four figures.

4) The Juries will be composed of modelers and collectors.

The Juries’ judgment is unquestionable. However, participants may question judges for clarifications, but only after the competition ending and in a courteous way. The Juries and organizers are not to be held responsible for model ownership.

For Master and Standard OPEN categories, it will be judged the entire realization of the model (painting and sculpture) or its substantial conversion (both anatomical and aesthetic). An image / photograph of the green is requested to show the work on the most representative piece of the display.

Box-dioramas, busts and plates are also judged in these OPEN categories.

5) CONTEST and SPECIAL PRIZES are also to be given out.

For more info, please consult the website www.alfamodel.eu. The models registered for the competition will automatically be registered to the appropriate contest category.

6) MODEL SUBMISSION: will take place on Friday 1st September, from 15:00 to 19:00 and Saturday 2nd September, from 09:00 to 13:00, in the exhibit room of the Hotel Villa EUR, P.le Marcellino Champagnat 2, 00144 Rome. Each modeler must turn in both the models and the print of the registration form completely filled in online. In case of the modeler registering at the moment of model submission (in case of the impossibility to pre-register online), he/she will need to turn in a legible list of models and their description, category, etc., so as not to slow down the registration process. Incomplete registration forms will not be accepted. It is possible to display models in a display case property of the modeler. The ALFA MODEL Association will set up a surveillance service so as to preserve the models’ integrity; however, responsibility for theft or damage to models is declined by the Association. We also point out that the organizers reserve the right not to display models, which are too fragile or offensive to the public.

From July 1st to September 1st, 2023 online pre-registration will be open on the www.alfamodel.eu site, which will accelerate model registration.

In order to reduce wait time at the secretariat, you’ll find a link leading to the printable labels (e.g. C03 – 1203) for your models, at the end of the confirmation mail after online pre-registration. Once you printed your labels (containing only the codes, without the models’ names), please apply them to your model base so they are well visible. This action is VERY important.
