Competition

INTERNATIONAL GROOMING CHAMPIONSHIP (E.G.A.)

At MASTER SHOW 2024 the International Grooming Championship will be organised in association with the E.G.A. (European Grooming Association). The championship is an integral part of the event and represents an exceptional opportunity for professional groomers.

Here are some key details:

WORLD RENOWNED JUDGES

The Championship welcomes world-renowned judges from the E.G.A., ensuring a high level of judging for the competitors.

EGA RULES

The competition follows the E.G.A. rules, which means the standards and guidelines are in line with international best practice in the grooming industry.

OFFICIAL CLASSES

The Championship will have four official classes divided into "CHAMPIONS" and "OPEN". Those who have never won in any category may enter the OPEN class and will remain in that class for one year even if they win only once. A calendar year is counted from the first gold, and only after the second gold do they have to move to the "CHAMPIONS" class. The following year, they can only compete in the CHAMPIONS class in the category in which they won. Those who have already won in the same category in which they are competing will be admitted to the CHAMPIONS class. The Best In Show will be chosen from the 8 winners of the official classes.

NON OFFICIAL CLASSES

The Championship is open to all groomers and offers the opportunity to compete and demonstrate their skills in this high level competition. The Debutant, Intermediate, Commercial and Asian Style classes will only have one class and will not participate in the Best in Show play-off. Entrants in the Debutant Class who are not selected as finalists will have the opportunity to improve their work and receive feedback from the same judges who judged them in the morning.
