The Nautical Research Guilds's Ship Model Review and Competition emphasizes craftsmanship and artistic expression as well as historic fidelity.
Welcome to the NRG’s Ship Model Review and Competition. Our previous juried competitions have drawn a large as well as wide variety of entries. We anticipate you will again appreciate the challenge and rewards of this competition and look forward to seeing the results of winning entries in a future issue of the Nautical Research Journal.
The entry deadline for this competition has passed. New entries are no longer being accepted.
As done in previous Competitions, the judges will award Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals to the top three scoring models in each Category plus a Best in Show award.
Our Model Review and Competition emphasizes craftsmanship and artistic expression as well as historic fidelity. As in the past, there will be multiple judges across all three entry categories and all entries will be scored with a point system in two categories: Craftsmanship and Artistic Impression. To underscore the broader education value to their participation, every entrant will receive copies of their judge’s scoring and commentary sheets for their model(s).
