2021 Virtual Show Entry -
Entries Accepted Now through October 24, 2021
Part of the virtual show that makes it unique is the medium it is done in. Judging is based entirely on what is in the photo. If you submit a photo that cuts off the tail, or the feet are not visible, you may lose points. If a photo is blurry or unclear you may also lose points. Taking crisp and clear images is important for your gerbil to do well.
All Exhibition entries should be taken on a WHITE or BLACK background, preferably using a lightbox. Gerbils taken on a background that is not white or black or photos that do not have sufficient resolution are difficult to judge and may not ribbon.
Please use email email@example.com to enter your gerbils into the 2021Virtual Show. Make sure to check that all your information and your gerbil's information is correct, following the guidance below.
AGS members may enter up to 8 Gerbils into the Exhibition Class, and 4 gerbils into Pet Class.
Non-members may enter up to 3 Gerbils into the Exhibition Class, and 3 gerbils into Pet Class.
We run this show as a fun event that we are pleased to offer it each year. We appreciate your support and enthusiasm and would encourage you to make a donation. Anyone making a donation in any amount will be entered into a raffle for a gorgeous 2022 Gerbil Calendar.
