  • Prepare judging books showing all pen numbers and class and special prize definitions but containing no information as to the identity or ownership of individual exhibits.
  • Ensure that all shows where challenge certificates are on offer, exhibits are checked in and out of the show by the use of their ring or ear number;
  • To appoint a judge or judges, a letter must be sent requesting them to judge a particular section or all of a show as appropriate.  The judges chosen must be acceptable to the RCNZ.  Judges must respond in writing o the request of an organisation wishing to engage them for judging, either accepting or declining the engagement.  Acceptance of any engagement by a judge will render the show organising body liable to pay the appropriate scale of judging fee as set from time to time by the Rabbit Council of NZ (Inc);
  • Advise the judge of the pen numbers of absent exhibits prior to the judging of each class;
  • Ensure that all exhibits bear an approved ear mark showing their pen number;
  • Ensure that no person gives the judge an indication as to the ownership of an exhibit not already placed; and that no attempt be made in any way to influence his/her awards;

  • Another rabbit show held at the same venue on the same day in which there is a common award, or
  • In any section for other exhibits in which there is a common award with rabbits.  No person may exhibit in the rabbit section who is judging any section for other exhibits in which there is a common award with rabbits. 

 

  • Judges Failing to Appear 

Where a judge fails to keep his/her appointment, then the classed which should have been taken by him/her shall be judged by another judge who has previously been recognised by the Rabbit Council as a judge.

 

  • Examinations of Exhibits 

The judge must examine all the exhibits as numbered in his/her judging book, see that they are placed before him/her by the stewards and make awards as advertised or instructed by the Show Committee and provided the exhibit is worthy of an award.  In all varieties where their standards carry a weight disqualification or points penalty, the exhibits shall be weight by the judge before the Challenge Certificate’s and Meritorious awards are finally made.
