The Model Engineer Competition will make a welcome return this May.

MyTimeMedia are collaborating with the National Model Engineering Exhibition and the Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (SMEE) to stage, once more, the esteemed Model Engineer Competition. The setting will be the ever popular National Model Engineering Exhibition at Doncaster, 10 - 12 May and the competition will be organised and overseen by members of SMEE who will, as always, provide the judging panel.
As in previous years at Sandown and Brooklands, Competition entries will be handled by Mike Law and Steve Eaton.

Time is very short and you have little opportunity to complete a model before May, but the organisers are mindful of this. Your entry need not necessarily be a newly completed model - although they are very welcome - but why not consider entering something that may (or may not) have been seen in exhibition before?

The Model Engineer Competition is open to model engineers throughout the world. Please give it some thought: we look forward to receiving your entry forms by 10th April.

Entry Forms and competition Rules are available to download from the M.E. website Homepage and will be printed in Issue 4607 (1st March) of Model Engineer.

Are we to assume that as this competition is being staged at Doncaster there will be no Brooklands exhibition this year?

Sadly there are no future exhibitions currently planned at Brooklands.

Hi, I was only wondering just a day or two ago if there would be an ME competition this year, personally, I prefer Doncaster to Brooklands as it's far easier to get to for me and besides I found Brooklands to be a bit all over the place when it was there.

Regards Nick.

That is excellent news. The Model Engineer Completion was always regarded as one of the most prestigious model engineering competitions in the world. I am so pleased the publishers have found a way to keep the old traditions and standards alive. The Doncaster venue is a logical choice even if it is a long trek for those down south.

Where will the completion entries be displayed, upstairs or in a section of the main hall?

Are you locking to accept 'private loan entries' as well as 'competition entries' as in previous years? That would give previous award winners a chance to display their stuff again.

Just read the Entry form, which answers my last question.

Just noticed this question.

It's likely the main display will be near the SMEE stand but this hasn't been confirmed yet.

It's no further than Brooklands was for us oop north! About time the dominance of the south east was disrupted. How about making the competition peripatetic, then we all get a chance now and again

That is probably because Perry keeps moving about from one year to the nextwink

This is actually sensible. Once people have been there they don't need to go again for a long time. You need a new attraction if you are doing a joint show.

Pete, categories here, no beginners unless you can squeeze in as a junior.

Thanks Jason, I didn't realise it was as large a competition as that.

The Homepage now has the correct version of Rule 6 which previously stated that (more or less) anything that had ever been entered into any competition previously was not allowed to enter this time! This has now been clarified to read:

Past Winners of an award at any previous exhibition promoted by the Model Engineer Magazine will not be eligible for re-entry unless substantially altered.

Now that's more like it!!
Apologies for the confusion.

D.
