There is a limit of 175 entries for this competition.
Each entrant is limited to 1 entry per subcategory.
After creating your account and adding your entries to the system, you must pay your entry fee(s). Accepted payment methods are:
Submit either 2 (TWO) 10- to 12-oz bottles OR at least 1 (ONE) 22-oz bomber. You are allowed to submit 2 (TWO) bombers if you want to ensure that an opened bottle goes to Best of Show round (it your entry advances).
Bottle caps must be blacked out or blank, and no identifying marks should be on the bottle -- but raised lettering is OK. Bottles will not be returned.
Bottle labels, which the online registration tool generates for each entry, must be printed and attached to each bottle with a rubber band by the entrant. Do not use tape or glue labels, since these will be disqualified. No bottles, filled or unfilled, will be returned.
Entry bottles accepted at our drop-off locations from Friday, January 19, 2018 12:00 PM, EST through Friday, February 2, 2018 4:00 PM, EST.

Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Please do not over pack!
Write clearly: Fragile. This Side Up. on the package. Please only use bubble wrap as your packing material.
Enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which entry has broken if there is damage during shipment.
Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.
