If you are interested in participating in a carving competition, the Thai Health and Information Services are inviting all carvers to a Thai Style carving competition. The grand prize is a round trip ticket to Bangkok, Thailand. You will find all of the information on the flyer below.
The carving will be done live and each carver will have 3 hours to carve a traditional Thai Style carving with a unique arrangement. Judging will evaluate and score each entrant on their technical skills based on the following criteria: Innovative, Uniqueness, and Arrangement.
This is a first time event. For details see the flyer and application below.
Rules, regulations and entrance fees as well as more details about the competition can be found in the application which you can download by clicking the following link: Application. Here are the Rules & Regulations that have been updated since the printing of the Application. The requirement #7 in the application to provide a video of the carving technique has been eliminated.
