Hi!

IPMS UK welcomes members of all overseas IPMS Branches to enter the ScaleModelworld competitions without having to become a member of IPMS UK separately.

Does IPMS USA do the same at your convention? I am a member of IPMS UK, so if I were to visit, could I enter a model in the IPMS USA Convention Competition? Or would I have to be a paid up member of IPMS USA?

Yes, always, here is an extract from the 2012 rules as an example:

I. ELIGIBILITY

1. The IPMS/USA National Contest is open only to members of IPMS/USA or other national IPMS branches. Any current member of IPMS/USA or any other national branch of IPMS is eligible to enter any number of models in the National Contest.

 

If you were at 2012, you would have seen any number of IPMS-(pick a Central/South America country) folks take home major iron ....

Sure can and if you look at the list of winners from this year, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and others entered and won. In fact, a gentelmen from Venezuela was best in show with a perfect motorcycle and another won best figure (and deserved to IMO)
