Awards at championship shows explained.
At 9 months old, enter open classes for their breed, e.g. Russian Blue Adult. If awarded 1st prize they can be awarded a challenge certificate (CC). the award of Champion status is acheived by getting 3 x CC (needs to be 3 different judges), so at least 3 times winner at 3 separate shows.
Grand Champion Classes
Once a Champion, cats can enter the Grand class - this has breeds from the foreign section (includes Abyssinian, Cornish and Devon Rex, Korat, Ocicat, Bengal and a few others) If the cat comes first it can be awarded a Grand Challenge certificate (GCC), 3 x GCC makes the cat a Grand Champion, again 3 different judges are required. There is also a runner up award of reserve Grand Champion.
Imperial Classes
Once a Grand Champion, cats can be entered in the Imperial class, if they come 1st they can be awarded an Imperial Grand Challenge Certificate (IGCC). To gain the staus of Imperial Grand Champion, 5 certificates are needed from different judges. Again there is a reserve award.
The higher the award the more difficult it is to attain, as the cat needs to be a good example of it's breed. See the Russian Standard of Points on the RBBA website to see what the judges are looking for.
Olympion Classes . Once a cat is an IGR CH it can be entered in the Olympian class, here the cat is competing against all sections and therefore breeds/ Imperial level cats in the show. There are levels of bronze, silver, gold, 5 certificates from 5 different judges are needed for each level, so 15 are needed for the highest level. So it will be very tough to achieve this award.
All Russians entered in the above classes at a shows will be considered together for the award of Best of Breed (BOB). The cats awarded BOB can be nominated by the judges to be considered for the best Adult, Kitten and Neuter in each section, e.g. Foriegn, these are called Best of Variety, the winning Adult, Kitten and Neuter are judged for Overall Best of variety, The Best of Variety winners from each section are judged for Best in Show. Not every show has a best in show or can be operated slightly differently.
Kitten classes
Kittens have a separate open class and are awarded places but not certificates, they also have a best of breed.
Neutered cats - before 9 months enter the kitten classes with entire kittens and then
once 9 months old enter these classes. The awards are similar to adults, but the status is Premier rather than Champion, so they get Premier certificates, then Grand Premier ,then Imperial Grand Premier.
