Thank you for entering the 2019 Online Western Art Rodeo World Finals!

The next step is to Upload 1 entry into each Round of Competition using the links below.

Please follow the Process to Enter 1 Photo for Each of the 3 Rounds at this time. No entries will be approved until all 3 entries are received.

Entries may have been previously entered into a 2019 WARA competition. As the Rules state: Each (The same) work of art may be entered once into 1 Online Art Rodeo and once in the World Championship. (If you entered a piece that did really well in a past 2019 competition, you may choose to enter it in a World Finals Round.) Pieces entered into any competition prior to the 2019 circuit are not allowed and will be disqualified. (We want to continue to share and promote new Western Art Pieces with the World!)

Important items to note:

  • Each contestant must Upload 3 works of art, 1 entry into each round of competition. No entries will be approved until all 3 entries are received.
  • Contestants are not allowed to enter more than 1 entry in each round of competition in the same category.
  • Only the Top 8 artists in combined points from Rounds 1 and 2 will compete in Round 3. Round 3 Entries will be approved after Round 2 is complete and the Final 8 in each category have been decided.
  • The Official WARA Online Competition Rules will govern the World Finals Event.

This is where it gets FUN! Make sure you enter your BEST works of Western Art.

The Points in Round 3 are worth 2x as much as Rounds 1 and 2, therefore, ideally, you want your best piece in Round 3. However…..remember, only the top 8 contestants from combined points in Rounds 1 & 2 advance to Round 3.


Here’s How it Works:

Contestants will Upload 1 entry into each round of competition for a Total of 3 entries.

Round 1 (December 3-7, 2019)

  • All Contestants in each category will enter 1 piece
  • WARA Judges will score each piece from 1-10 based on Fine Art Principles.
  • Judges Points will be added up and divided by the number of judges that participate to determine the Avg. Score per contestant.
    • 1st place = 1200 points
    • 2nd place = 1140 points,
    • 3rd place =1080 points
    • 4th place = 1020 points
    • 5th place = 960 points
    • 6th place = 900 points
    • 7th place = 840 points
    • 8th place = 780 points
    • and so on down to the last entry.

Round 2 (December 10-14, 2019)

  • All Contestants in each category will enter 1 piece
  • WARA Judges will score each piece from 1-10 based on Fine Art Principles.
  • Judges Points will be added up and divided by the number of judges that participate to determine the Avg. Score per contestant.
    • 1st place = 1200 points
    • 2nd place = 1140 points,
    • 3rd place =1080 points
    • 4th place = 1020 points
    • 5th place = 960 points
    • 6th place = 900 points
    • 7th place = 840 points
    • 8th place = 780 points
    • and so on down to the last entry.

Points earned in Round 1 and Round 2 will be added together for each contestant to determine the Top 8 that will compete in Round 3.

Round 3 – Final Round (December 17-21, 2019)

  • Only the Top 8 artists in combined points from Rounds 1 and 2 will compete in Round 3.
  • All Contestants in each category will enter 1 piece
  • WARA Judges will score each piece from 1-10 based on Fine Art Principles.
  • Judges Points will be added up and divided by the number of judges that participate to determine the Avg. Score per contestant.
  • Points are DOUBLE in Round 3 and will be awarded on the following schedule:
    • 1st place = 2400 points
    • 2nd place = 2280 points,
    • 3rd place = 2160 points
    • 4th place = 2040 points
    • 5th place = 1920 points
    • 6th place = 1800 points
    • 7th place = 1680 points
    • 8th place = 1560 points

Points earned in all 3 Rounds of the World Finals will be totaled to determine the “World Finals Point Total” for each contestant.

Each Contestant’s “World Finals Point Total” will then be added to the Cumulative points total for each member in the 2019 Circuit of events to determine the “Overall Points Total”.

The World Champion in each category will be the contestant with the highest “Overall Points Total” – the  combined total in all 2019 events, including the Finals.


Alternate Contestants

If a category in the World Finals is not full due to contestants choosing not to enter, alternates will be invited to enter the final event.
Alternates are members that finished 1st, 2nd or 3rd in a single round of competition during the yearly circuit but did not qualify in the Top 20 of the World Standings.

Cumulative World Standings Points + World Finals Points = Overall Points

Overall Points Total = 2019 World Champion in each Category


Prizes:

World Champions in each category (including All Around) will receive:

  • Title of WARA 2019 World Champion Artist
  • Prize Money in each Round – 50% for 1st Place (2nd place will receive 30% and 3rd place 20%)
  • WARA World Championship Buckle
  • Featured placement/promotion on the WARA Website and Social Media Channels as the Reigning World Champion – (the one to beat next year)
  • Lifetime recognition as the 2019 World Champion in the WARA World Champion Hall of Fame.
