The IBC has entry forms that entrants fill out and send either before or with the fish they wish to show. You either ship the fish a couple of days before the show or bring them before the show starts. Payment is usually asked for by a certain date, and return shipping needs to be added also if you want your bettas shipped back to you.
On the day of the show, they are judged and you wait and hope.

They're hardy little creatures. They can survive a little trip.

So the owner of the showing Betta can't go to the convention? And if you win like Reserve Best of Show, what do you win besides an award and an honor?

You win "points" the person with the most points at the end of the years considered the grand champion of that year. And the person showing can go to the show or convention. There's 1 convention in the USA each year I believe this next one is in Dallas, tx

You're so lucky you can go. I can't because I'm not even sure I'm allowed to breed. Nor I even live near where the shows are hold. -.-

I'm going to have my best fish ready by then! My second generation salamanders, dragon HMPK's, blue marble HM's and blue Mustard Gas HM's will be ready if they all spawn by January

Do you have to have bred the fish? Does it have to be purebred?
