On the occasion of the EuroModel's exhibition, which in 2022 will host Quai Zéro, the biennial event of the Cercle du Zéro, which will celebrate its 40th anniversary, the UDCM, organizer of EuroModel's, Le Cercle du Zéro and Redutex are organizing a diorama competition.
Subject of the competition:
A: Large scale:
To create a diorama that can be transported in a private vehicle, at a scale of between 1/35, 1/43 and 1/64. The central theme of the diorama will be a dwelling, a building, an industrial building, a playlet or other, representative of the habitat of the chosen region, using at least 4 different references of Redutex self-adhesive textures. The building(s) or edifice(s) may be a total or partial representation of a real or imagined building, the only criterion being the affirmation of the typicality of the chosen region. The textures used, at the director's discretion, can be diverted from their reference scale, reworked or given a patina; they serve as a relief support for the production. If the amateur does not find the precise textures he intends to use in the sales outlets selling the brand, he can order them on the Redutex website.
The amateur (or the club) who wishes to compete chooses his theme, his region, his possible country and the environment of his diorama, he will propose with his work one or several photographs of the real style of the habitat (in the broad sense) that he wishes to represent. He/she must present his/her work at EuroModel's which will take place on 24 and 25 September 2022 in Châtellerault. He may do so personally or by delegating his work to another exhibitor who will be his representative. The works presented must never have been described in specialised magazines or presented at a previous exhibition.
A jury composed of representatives of the Cercle du Zéro, Redutex, the partners and the organisation will vote anonymously for each of the works indicated by a stick and a number on the exhibition. The jury is sovereign. The jury's scores will be added up to determine the winners.
