Taxidermy Competitions have a great tradition worldwide. The European Taxidermy Championships® (ETC®) has been in existence for over 25 years, with a continuously rising popularity.
The main reason for having competitions is for the participants to be able to expose themselves as well as learning, benefiting from the seminars and getting in touch with experienced experts. The presentation of mounts on the highest level for a large audience, including the media, puts into perspective the misconceptions and false assumptions in society as well as eliminating prejudice.
The exhibitions offer a vast source for inspiration for their own work and the trade show provides all information on the latest products and services. Of course the social component should not be underestimated. It is a great fun to meet taxidermists from the whole world, to talk shop and exchange experiences. The change of scenery and some amusing evenings with colleagues can make a difference.
We cordially invite you to experience this special and thrilling atmosphere, preferably competing yourself.
