How to distinguish a show betta?

I am looking at buying another betta, and I really was looking for a show type. What are important things to look for? How to tell the form and finnage, just things like that.

Thanks,
Magnum.

The same site Ivandert linked also has links to an older version of the IBC standards. If not in betta territory then in his other site you can find digging around in there.

I am not sure about the other sites listed at the time i'm posting this.

Join the IBC and down load the standards. Get on Karens facebook page or mine [basementbettas] We discuss form a lot in both places. then spend a lot of time looking for faults on the AB fish. Their faults are many. And learn to look at the form and not the hodge podge of color combos we are seeing on AB. NONE of those fish are typically showable as they do not fit into the IBC classes.
