Artwork is classified as it is submitted to the show: 
- Event (Bird Carving - Sculpture - Photography - Painting & Drawing - Junior)
- Division (A - Z)
- Class (1 - 4)
- Level (Beginner - Intermediate - Open)

Ribbons are awarded starting with judging each class:
1st - 2nd - 3rd in each class at each level in each division in all events

Note:  To ensure that there is always representation from each class when a piece is selected to get a ribbon, the 2nd place piece from that class or division is moved up to replace it before proceeding to the next level of judging.

Those pieces are then judged for the Best in Division Ribbons:
1st - 2nd - 3rd in each Division at each level 
- those pieces will now have 2 ribbons; 1 for class & 1 for division

The Best in Division pieces are then judged to receive the Best in Event:
1st - 2nd - 3rd in each Event  
- these pieces now have 3 ribbons; 1 for class, 1 for division & 1 for event

The Best in Event pieces from Bird Carving, Sculpture, Photography, Painting & Drawing and Junior are judged to receive the Overall Best in Show prize 


NOTE:  If winning artists wish to donate their ribbons back to the show for reuse next year, please leave them at the front desk when you pick up your work on Sunday.
