Registration for the Gunpla Hangar Showcase can be done prior to Otafest using the form below, or in person during the day on May 19th and 20th.
To sign in your kit(s), proceed to the registration table near the contest display area in the Marriott’s Mount Royal room (the Gunpla Hangar). Let the staff know whether you pre-registered online or are doing day of registration. It is recommended to drop off early in the day to allow better opportunities for people to view and give People’s Choice votes.
Once signed in, either a volunteer will assist you with displaying your kit in the showcase display area.
Please note that registration closes at 8:00pm MT on Saturday May 20th when the Gunpla Hangar closes for the day. All model kits will be locked up and secured overnight.
Judging is on the morning of Sunday May 21st by our panel of judges. Winners to be announced in the Gunpla Hangar between 1:30 – 2:00pm.
Once all winners have been announced, you’re free to pick up your entries until 4:00pm. Should you need to make arrangements to pick up after 4:00pm on the Sunday please speak with one of the Gunpla Hangar staff at any time throughout the weekend.
* Size of model kits are restricted to the dimension of a square space.
The Gunpla Hangar Showcase is judged on three criteria. Build, Paint, and Creativity.
Build and paint scoring is based on the quality of the build and the paintwork. The more polished and clean the execution, the higher you will score.
Creativity is based off the extra effort put into elevating the build beyond the contents of the box without looking through the lens of build and paint quality. So take chances, make mistakes, and have fun because that could be what gets you some mondo points!
