What are your favorite homebrew competitions?
What is important to you in deciding which competitions to enter?

I enjoy the Colorado state fair:
Solid competition (15+ entries per category), great judges who give constructive feedback, beautiful award medals. Also Foam Fest is a great event that goes on at the fair where you can sample brews from all over the country.

I try and have brews for all my local competitions (so I don't have to pay for shipping), and I'm still entering competitions all over regardless of size or history. I think next year I'll have a better idea of ones I'll enter and ones I'll avoid. I think the quality of the judges comments are what's most important to me. I also enjoy the my brewery (garage) character.

I was thinking the same thing, but have had a hard time finding them in time to enter. I've started this thread in the Colorado Dependency group. Please visit and list any comps you know of.
Seriously. I'm here for BEER

Comps here in Canada are few so I enter all the national ones, about 4 per year.

I've only entered three and those were one time only things: The International Mead Festival, The Nebraska State Fair, and the local Buffalo County Fair.
