The Pre-Sculpted Division had a record number of excellent entries at the 2019 World Taxidermy Championships®. Ohio Taxidermy Supply, who donated $5,000.00 to the WTC cash award fund in 2019, asked that a portion of this donation go toward the winners in the Live Sculpting ($1,000.00) and Pre-Sculpted ($1,000.00) Divisions. The Best of Category for Gameheads went to Wendi Johnson of Sanford, Michigan, and Best of Category for Lifesize was won by Ma Hongyu from Yantai City, China. They each won $500.00 for their winning entries.
This photo review includes all 16 entries, six in the Gameheads category and ten in the Lifesize Mammals category. This is now a multiple ribbon division so each entry is scored on its own merit by a team of 3 judges. Rules and regulations can be found on page 24 of the World Show booklet at the Breakthrough website.
