  3. The busiest time for receiving entries is Thursday between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Try to come on Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning to avoid delays and line-ups. Make sure your entry tags have your name on them before putting your exhibits on display!

    Guidelines for all Horticulture Division Classes

    Following are some guidelines suggested for entries in Class 38-40 of the Horticultural Division. These guidelines are taken from the “Ontario Judging Standards,” published by the Ontario Horticultural Association and/or the Garden Clubs of Ontario in co-operation with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs, which is available for purchase at a moderate price. This booklet provides you with everything necessary for successful entry in competitions in Classes 38, 39 and 40.

    Preparation of Entries

    1. List or mark on the following schedule, the plants you have grown that are or will be, at the proper stage for exhibiting, including the “any other” categories.
    2. Cut flowers and foliage the evening before the show or in the early morning, selecting specimens of quality.
    3. Preparing Materials for Hardening
      1. Remove lower foliage cleanly. Upper foliage must be attached unless otherwise stated.
      2. Specimen blooms must be disbudded. In fact, good exhibitors will often disbud weeks before the show.
      3. Make a fresh slanting cut at the end of the stems, for maximum water intake.
      4. Place in a wide bucket in deep warm water, preferably overnight.
      5. Store in a cool, dark, humid, draft-free place.
    4. Conditioning It is well known that some cut flowers, foliage and woody materials do not readily absorb water, and require further treatment prior to hardening, to prevent wilting during the show.
      1. Flowering branches generally benefit from splitting the cut ends, although some require removal of the thick outer layer as well.
      2. Some cut flowers (e.g. poppies) benefit from burning the stem ends, while others benefit from placing stem ends in boiling water or from chemicals in the water. Details are available in floral books.
    5. Preparation of Specimens for Showing
      1. removal of dust, stains, pollen and any other foreign material.
      2. re-cut stem ends before placing in show containers.
    6. Some Cautions
      1. a bud showing colour is considered a bloom, which upsets the bloom count
      2. only self-foliage is permitted to be attached, unless otherwise stated in the schedule
      3. wiring, oiling, spraying and artificial colouring is prohibited in the Horticultural Division
    7. Placing Entries
      1. Exhibitors are responsible for placing entries in proper classes
      2. Show directors can assist exhibitors to avoid errors in placing entries and ensure they qualify within the limits prescribed in the schedule
    8. Guidelines and Terminology
      1. Uniformity – specimens in an entry of a given cultivar should be as uniform as possible in size, form, and colour. When several cultivars are involved, they may vary in size and colour, but should be at a uniform stage of development.
      2. Form – should be characteristic of the cultivar. Thin shallow blooms, or distorted or immature blooms, are not of exhibition quality.
      3. Size and Colour – according to the cultivar
      4. Substance – freshness and turgidity are evidence of good substance and lasting quality
      5. Stem and Foliage – the stem should be of good proportion, sufficiently strong and stiff to support the bloom, but not coarse. Only attached self-foliage is permitted, unless otherwise stated.
      6. Condition and Grooming – entries should be at the proper stage of maturity, turgid and free of mechanical injury, insects, disease, and spray blemishes. Flowers and foliage should display evidence of good culture and grooming.

    All exhibits must be grown by exhibitor

    Rules for Class 44D – Photography

    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITORS: Due to the large volume of photographic exhibits received and the limitations of display space, we will only accept online advance entries as follows:

    1. Only one entry, per section, per exhibitor is allowed.
    2. Photos may be in colour or black & white, at the exhibitor’s discretion.
    3. All exhibitors must submit their list of entries online at kinmountfair.net. To submit photographs, they must be uploaded to a file/photo sharing service online (e.g. Google Drive, iCloud, etc.) and a sharing link must be provided in the online entry form. If submitting multiple photos, they must all be shared with the same link (this usually is accomplished by placing all photo files in the same folder/album). This is the preferred method for submitting your entries. However, if you are unable to complete entries this way, please forward by email to julie@jaustinandsons.com.
      1. Save photographs in either JPEG or PNG format, and
      2. Name your files according to the section that is being entered and your name. For example, "Section 3 - John Dewhurst.jpg".
    4. Exhibitors who have not paid for their 2024 membership in the Society must also submit their payment prior to Friday August 30th, 2024. Payment can be made in-person at the Exhibit Hall drop-off times (see Exhibit Hall Rules) or by Interac e-transfer to payments@kinmountfair.net.
    5. Both monetary and sticker prizes will be awarded. A 4th place prize and sticker will be awarded in any section with seven (7) or more entries. Prize stickers may be exchanged in the Secretary’s office for prize ribbons before the conclusion of the fair, if desired.
