Members are reminded of the following requirements of IKGH shows – especially those who are hosting a IKGH European Championship Competition show:
1 Same conditions for all entries.
2 No direct sunlight to the show display.
3 The background colour of show equipment must be dark blue or black. Every tank in the exhibition must have the same background colour.
4 During the Judging, clear coding, no noise, while the guppy show display is closed for all people – only judges and the show manager are allowed to enter.
5 Use standard forms with delivery of the fishes (name, country, association, standard, body colour, cover colour, quantity).
6 Use tank labels for visitors that include: name, country, society, standard, body colour, cover colour, rank/place and points awarded.
7 Any participant who has bred his / her guppies him / herself is eligible
8 IKGH recommends that the fishes are always transported with no more than one individual per bag.
9 Not more than two judges from one country are allowed.
10 A maximum of two judges must be employed from any one club or any one country
11 Display and judge every entry from a breeder. If there are dead or missing fish from an entry set, the decision to include it in the judging or not, must be made by the Show Manager
12 Issue a certificate for participants through the membership association, detailing every entry with the standard, body and cover colour, as well as the result place and points achieved.
13 In Europe championship shows, there must be an international observer to oversee the compliance to the IHS rules.
14 Invitations must be sent by the show organisers 3 months before the show to all members of the IKGH and to the board of the IKGH.
I have noticed many shows falling short of some requirements, especially the ‘minor’ obligations, in the past and I would recommend that all show managers check through the IKGH standards and refamiliarize themselves with the rules. If there are any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
