Entry Limit

There is a limit of 300 entries for this competition.

Per Entrant Limits

Each entrant is limited to 10 entries for this competition.

Pay Entry Fees

After creating your account and adding your entries to the system, you must pay your entry fee(s). Accepted payment methods are:

  • Check, made out to Saskatoon Headhunters
  • Credit/debit card and e-check, via PayPal

Entry Acceptance Rules

All entries must be registered on our website at: http://database.saskatoonheadhunters.ca/. Please include all information relative to judging your submission. All submitted entries must include two (2) bottles greater than 300 mL in volume. 341 mL brown bottles are preferred. All identifying marks must be removed, except for the labels provided during registration. Cap markings must be blacked out with a permanent marker. The label must be securely fastened to the bottles and legible. Use a rubber band, with your label in a sealed plastic bag.

 

Please take great care to pack bottles for shipping. A tightly packed, padded box is best, and for everyone’s sake, please double bag the contents in garbage bags. If you bag each sample individually with its entry label, any breakage is easily identified. Take care to ensure your ‘yeast samples’ arrive before the due date, November 4, 2017.

Packing and Shipping

Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Please do not over pack!

Write clearly: Fragile. This Side Up. on the package. Please only use bubble wrap as your packing material.

Enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which entry has broken if there is damage during shipment.

Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.

If you live in the United States, please note that it is illegal to ship your entries via the United States Postal Service (USPS). Private shipping companies have the right to refuse your shipment if they are informed that the package contains glass and/or alcoholic beverages. Be aware that entries mailed internationally are often required by customs to have proper documentation. These entries might be opened and/or returned to the shipper by customs officials at their discretion. It is solely your responsibility to follow all applicable laws and regulations.
