How’s it work?

Who decides the “Best in Show” winner? You do! We’ll have live voting setup at SugarCon so attendees can choose who walks home with the prestigious “Best in Show” title.

Submissions open on March 2 and will run through March 27. Remember, even if you can’t attend SugarCon, you can still enter your application and qualify for the “Best in Class” and “Best in Show” recognition.
