The 2018 Show will again feature a silent auction of painted figures. Contributing artists will range from widely acknowledged Grand Masters to accomplished, but not necessarily"recognized" painters. The auction will open at 9:00 AM on Saturday of the Show and each figure will be closed out, individually, at the Auctioneer's discretion between 5:00 and 6:00 on Saturday afternoon.

Winners must be present to claim their figure(s) or have some one who will do so in their stead.  (The AMFS will not be responsible for delivery or shipment.)

Very Important Information​​

The Atlanta Model Figure is a family friendly show and as such we respectfully request that all entries should reflect good taste and appropriateness for all ages of viewers. Any displays or entries which do meet these simple requirements are subject to removal from the exhibit areas. Additionally, the Show Committee reserves the right to disallow any entries which it deems not appropriate or distasteful

******************************************************

While we encourage photographers to snap away to their heart's content, for safety to all, and convenience to others we request that your camera usage be limited to hand held without tri- or mono pods.

******************************************************

All displays in the exhibit hall are limited to a size of 30" x 36". Any entries exceeding this size MUST BE APPROVED IN ADVANCE by the SHOW CHAIRMAN.

The AMFS Show judging is based on the Open System of Judging and as a result the event is an exhibition rather than a competition. Entries are not judged against each other, but are evaluated against a standard of painting  and/or modelling excellence. As a result of this any number of medals, in all levels from Pewter to Gold, are available for presentation.


In addition to the medals, the Show offers a limited number of Memorial or Specialty awards available to the exhibitors. These are listed below.
