‘The World Taxidermy Championships®’ are taking place for the 2nd time in Europe -
in Salzburg once again!
After the first time in 2008, Salzburg has once again been chosen to host ‘The World Taxidermy Championships®’. The event is being staged by Reed Messe Salzburg Gmbh with the assistance of the Austrian Federal Guild of Fashion and Clothing Technology, the European Taxidermy Federation (ETF), and ‘Breakthrough Magazine Inc.’
The crème de la crème can place their work under the scrutiny of an expert jury in 3 divisions (Master, Professional, Novice). The very best taxidermist will then be awarded the title ‘World Taxidermy Champion 2012’, in the Master Division!
Two trade fairs are being staged parallel to the WTC2012 Salzburg Exhibition Centre on the 23. – 26.2.2012:
‘Die Hohe Jagd & Fischerei’: The largest trade fair in the central European alps for hunting and fishing, and the number.2 in the whole of the European continent (www.hohejagd.at)
‘absolut allrad’: off-road and 4x4 vehicle show

“The World Taxidermy Championships® is the grandest event in taxidermy and offers the most prestigious title in taxidermy, that of a World Champion. We are very happy to announce that we are producing the second World Taxidermy Championship in Europe, in conjunction with Reed Exhibitions Messe Salzburg. The World Show competition will be part of ‘Die Hohe Jagd & Fischerei’, one of Europe's most significant hunting and fishing shows. The WTC 2012 will be supported and produced with assistance of the European Taxidermy Federation and the Austrian Federal Guild of Fashion and Clothing Technology. ‘The World Taxidermy Championships®’ has been called taxidermy's greatest event and there are many reasons why it is given that title. Taxidermists from all over the world meet to compete, communicate, learn, and enjoy the highest standards of this art form. In addition to the competition, there will be seminars by the leading taxidermists, critiques of your entries by world-class judges, and large cash awards given to winners.
We welcome you to visit Salzburg and be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. We hope to meet you at the WTC 2012!”
