5th Annual

American Carvers Pipe Making Competition

Purchase Raffle Tickets Online

Single Ticket for $25

5 Ticket Package for $100

Shape:  

Greetings fellow pipe makers. I am pleased to announce the shape for the 2014 carving contest. This year it is the Billiard with a straight stem.

Shape:  The overall look and feel of the pipe must be a billiard. In prior years  we allowed a wide latitude to the carvers to demonstrate their creativity. This year we want to test their technical skill.  Beyond that, anything goes: plain/adorned shank/stem, smooth, rusticated, sandblasted, color(s), etc.

Finally, keep in mind that every detail counts. This applies to the entire pipe; the bowl, the stem, the execution, the aesthetics, everything counts.

Size: The selected pipes must fit in a custom made case that will, of necessity, be made ahead of time. Variation in size is expected, but unusually large or small pipes (or long, like churchwardens) are at risk of elimination if they will not fit in the case.

Eligible Carvers: If you make pipes, either professionally or as an amateur, and live in North America, you are eligible. Citizens of North America who don’t live in North America are not eligible. You do not have to attend the show to enter. Entry is limited to one pipe per carver.

Additional Recognition: This year, “Honorable Mention” will be available, at the judge’s discretion, for pipes that don’t make the set.

Registration:  There will be an entry fee of $20.00. When you register for the show you can pay this fee.

Judging: The pipes will be judged at the Kansas City Pipe & Tobacco Show.

Everyone that participates in the contest will have a picture of their pipe published in a photo spread in Pipes and tobaccos magazine along with their name/contact info/web address (space allowing).  Thank you Chuck Stanion! If you don’t subscribe, please do. He is supporting us in a big way. The least we can do is subscribe to the magazine. Ask your customers to support you, and the magazine, by subscribing.

I strongly recommend that you pick up the Fall 2012 and the Fall 2013 issues of Pipes and tobaccos magazine and read the articles about the contest. The interviews with the judges (Greg Pease, Tad Gage & George Dibos) will give you excellent insight into what the judges are looking for and what they consider important .

Please pass this invitation on to other pipe makers who you feel would enjoy participating in the contest.  As always, if you have questions or comments, please contact me.
