As many of you might know, Coolmini hosts the Crystal Brush competition in Chicago at Adepticon. Coolmini has introduced the heretofore unheard-of Grand Prize of $10,000, followed by a $2,000 and $1,000 second and third prize. Coolmini has announced their plan for select conventions to be 'satellite' programs for the Crystal Brush competition. Kublacon is honored to be part of this program. The winner of the Best Of Show in the KublaAwards shall receive a round-trip flight to Chicago to participate in the Crystal Brush Competition 2012 at Adepticon! Kublacon wishes to thank CoolMiniOrNot.com on behalf of the west coast miniature-painting community. ********************************************************************************************************** We are pleased to continue the new "Open" style judging for the KublaAwards. "What is 'Open judging', you might ask? Well, allow me to explain: The old familiar style of judging was commonly known as "Podium" judging, and has been a mainstay of competitions such as Games Workshop's "Golden Demon Awards", where entries are divided up by many categories and genres, and in each category there are three winners in the order of Gold, Silver, and Bronze. This is a reputable and time-honored judging system, but is not the only one, and is not without its drawbacks. Common problems with Podium Judging involve under and over represented categories. For example: Fantasy Single is often the most highly contested category...dozens of entries may in fact be Gold-worthy, but the hard choices must be made, and wonderful entries must be weeded out to just the top three. Often, the same well-known high-end painters walk away with the trophies year after year, discouraging new painters from entering. While in another category, there may not be even enough entries to fill out the top three, thereby granting automatic trophy status to whatever happens to have been entered. This tends to cheapen the trophy. Now, enter the Open Judging System! This style of competition is *merit-based*. The panel of judges critique the entries based on quality of artistry and technique. You are not judged against your neighbor, but against an artistic and technical 'standard'. If your entry is Gold-worthy, then you will in fact win a Gold trophy! This style of judging has been practiced for many years at Historical conventions and European competitions. In recent years, many American painting competitions adopted variations of the Open System, including GenghisCon, ReaperCon, and our very own KublaCon! Genres are eliminated. There are now two main categories: the Open Category is the main amateur competition, and the Masterclass category is for high-end prestige competition. Masterclass will be judged to a more stringent standard. Those who place in Masterclass are indeed the 'Best of the Best'! Both categories are judged according to Open rules. Rules for entry: Each competitor may enter a max total of 4 entries. For *entry purposes only*, these will be restricted to 2 Singles, 1 Squad, and 1 Large. You may choose to enter any entry into either the main Open, or the Masterclass category. *Single is defined as any normal-sized mini under 3" in any dimension (excluding extraneous features such as long weapons and banners). These generally include cavalry and bikes. *Squad is a themed grouping of at least 3 miniatures. This can include dioramas, and 'duels' (even though they be two models). *Large is any miniature larger than 3" in any dimension. This can include dioramas that feature Large models. There are additional awards that will be handed out for Best of Reaper, Best of GW, Best of Privateer Press, Best Conversion....and the Best of Show "KublaSword". Attendees will vote on their favorite mini for the Peoples Choice Award. We will also carry on our traditional KublaKids category for painters 15 years old and under. This category will continue using the Podium System. Members of the Judging panel ARE allowed to enter the competition, but of course will not be judging their own entries. Entries will be accepted anytime at the Paint-n-Take area in the main foyer on Fri and Sat (when open), and Sun till noon. Every care will be taken by Kubla staff to ensure the safety of competition entries, but Kublacon staff, volunteers, and hotel cannot be held responsible for lost, damaged or unclaimed entries. Please reclaim entries anytime after 5pm Sunday, or Monday morning before noon. Entry implies consent for Kublacon to photograph and display entries during convention, the awards show, and online. Previous KublaAwards winning entries are ineligible for further entry. Judges decisions are considered final. Come to KublaCon 2011 and enjoy the KublaAwards Competition, the Paint-n-Take tables, Speedpainting contests, and seminars. See you at KublaCon! May 27-30, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency, Burlingame, next to the SF airport. http://www.Kublacon.com/ Wayne Rogers, Kublacon Mini-Painting Director
