The Competition

The highlight of the Flanders’ Modelling Festival is of course the competition. In 2019 the number of categories has been simplified, in order to improve the overview for visitors and participants. In addition a new system with substantial prices will be introduced.

How to participate in the competition?

When entering your model(s) on-line before 9 March, the costs are 2 euro per model. Entering at the show is also possible, but then the costs are 3 euro per model. However, every 3rd model is free of charge.
