Regards to the Contestant free entry offer.

From a logistical point of view it is obviously easier if a contestant buys the full package on entering the contest but we do appreciate that many save up throughout the year to go to the convention.
With this in mind a contestant may still send in his form now to register for the contest Free of Charge and he will be listed on this website and his heat placement will be confirmed.

We recommend that the Hotel package is purchased asap due to availability, and that the contestant must buy his gold pass by the 1st December 2012 latest to qualify him for free entrance into the contest.
