Registration for Certified INBF Judges

Certified Judges need to sign up to be included on the judges contact email list if available to judge in the 2015 events across Canada.

For every show, an email will be sent to all judges on the contact list to request those judges interested in judging the posted INBF Canada Event to enter their name as a potential judge for that event.

The INBF Canada judge director will select a group of judges to complete the judging panel based on equal representation of male/female and various other factors.

The selected Judge Panel will then be posted, along with alternate judges and judges in training to attend the event.

If you sign up to judge for an event and are selected, you are committed to the event.

All Certified Judges selected to judge an event will be provided with a digital Promotional Profile done by Ron Sombolin with INBF Banding and INBF Canada Judge Designation with a year to use for personal use.
