Judging will take place from 17th July to 14th August.
A competition judged by a panel of three experienced international hound judges for each class. They will judge the classes based on four photographs and a video. As the judges will not be able to handle the hound, there can only be a decision based on the images supplied. Therefore, the judges' choice may not necessarily reflect those where physical judging takes place and all exhibitors are reminded to bear this in mind.
The judges will award prizes to the top four hounds for both the entered Dog hound and entered Bitch for each class. They will then choose their Champion from the first Dog hound and Bitch for the class.
A separate panel of three international experienced judges will judge the class Champions of a section to produce the Supreme Champion for the Section.
