The European Taxidermy Championships® is one of the most prestigious competitions on earth!

Taxidermy Competitions have a great tradition worldwide. The European Taxidermy Championships® (ETC®) have been existing for over 25 years now with a continuous raising popularity.

The main reason for having competitions is surely the possibility for the participants to be able to position themselves as well as learning, benefiting of the offers such as seminars and getting in touch with experienced experts. The presentation of mounts on the highest level for a large audience and the media strongly helps putting into perspective misconceptions and false assumptions in society as well as eliminating prejudice.

The exhibitions offer a vast source for inspiration for the own work and the trade show provides you with all information on latest products and services. Of course also the social component should not be underestimated. It is a lot of fun to meet taxidermists of the whole world, to talk shop and exchange experiences. Already the change of scenery and an amusing evening with colleagues can make a difference…

We cordially invite you to experience this special and thrilling atmosphere, preferably competing yourself…
