SHOWMANSHIP CLASSES 
Showmanship Classes will be judged on handler’s appearance “10%”, grooming and conditioning of dog “20%”, coordination of the dog and handler “50%”, and general knowledge “20%”. Special coat trims (such as poodle or terriers) will not count except for being clean and neatly brushed.

RALLY
Listing of rally signs are available on the county website.  A class entry fee will be assessed per rally class. All fees are due at the pre-fair entry deadline. Fees are non-refundable.  Rally obedience is a dog performance class that uses directional signs that are numbered to indicate the course the handler is to follow during the performance.  The team of dog and handler heel from sign to sign and perform the exercises indicated by the numbered sign at the location.  At the start sign, the judge gives permission to start the courses and then the dog and handler go through the courses.  The judge will say “Are you ready?”  followed by “Forward.”  No other directives are given.  The course consists of signs that instruct the team what to do.  Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course.  The number of stations/signs is noted below in the class description (start and finish signs are not included in the sign count and are automatically used).  Signs may be duplicated and used more than one time to create the course.
PROCEDURE - Sequence and course map of the exercises will vary.  The exhibitors will begin doing rally based on their level in obedience classes. Exhibitors must advance to the next level after receiving two blue ribbons.  Jump heights are the same as agility classes.

Note, however, that old two-sided tape may not be reliable. Any photos not securely mounted will be removed from competition and display.  

Mats: Mats are optional but recommended if photo is 8”x10”. If mats are used, they must be 11”x14” and must be firmly attached. Use quality Mounting Tapes or glues that are available at most art supply stores and frame shops. Two-sided tape must be completely around the mat. Again, old two-sided tape may not be reliable.  

No metallic paper.  

Title card: With the photo face down, place the title card on the upper right side of the back of the photo backing. The title card must be no larger than 3” X 5” and be mounted so that no more than 2" is visible above the photo when viewed from the front of the photo.  All classes should have a title on the title card. The title of the entry should be short: one to four words in length. The entry title written on the title card taped to the board back must be visible on the left front of the photo.

Identification: Identify your photo by placing the following information on the back of the entry: 

Exhibitor's Name 

City- Phone #

Editing used (software, auto settings, cropping, curves or brushes, HDR, etc)

Presentation: All photos must be unframed. Do not cover with cellophane, acetate or glass. There should be no hooks, wires or hangers attached to the photo.

 

Judging: Photography exhibits will be judged according to the following criteria: technique, composition, impact, originality, print & mounting quality, and overall presentation.
