So we can start entering? Also when does the entering part end? When do the judges start judging? Lastly, when do we get the results of the contest?

I was confused at first too :)

In the colour catagory, I believe it will work like this (correct me if I am wrong sincerely)
There will be one winner picked from each colour type, these winners will then procede to the next stage of judging. The winners will then go against the other colour types of their catagory, for example, the butterfly crowntail against the pastel etc. Next the winner of the whole catagory, that is to say the best coloured crowntail, will then be put up against the best coloured halfmoon/halfmoon plakat/delta/superdelta.

I think that is what sincerely meant anyway...I could be completely wrong!
