    J u r i e d s h o w ( a d u lt d i v i s i o n s o n ly ) Hand Crafts & Hobbies is a juried competition. In an effort to ensure entries meet the basic requirements to participate and are entered in the most correct or appropriate categories, entries will be prejuried. Entries will be judged first from uploaded images viewed online to determine if the submitted entry meets the requirements and the subjective standards for exhibition set by the judges. Decisions are final and cannot be protested.

    Reassignment of Entry Division or Class Judges and/or the Program Coordinator have the option of reassigning an entry to a more appropriate Division or Class or combine Divisions or Classes to create an adequate judging pool. Nonetheless, it is the responsibility of the exhibitor to enter their work in the appropriate Class. Failure to enter the appropriate Class may result in disqualification.

    Acceptance for Exhibition You will be notified by email with the results of the First Round Judging. Please check your Spam/Junk folder. Results can also be viewed online at ocfair.com/results. Only accepted items to be delivered on the Entry Delivery Day. First Round Judging acceptance does not guarantee acceptance for exhibition. The delivered entries may still be judged out for not complying with the competition rules and guidelines.
