WFC constantly strives to create a level and fair playing field for all competitors. Each year, contest rules are thoroughly reviewed by WFC staff and the WFC Ambassador team. Sometimes rules are added. Sometimes rules are abolished. Sometimes rules just need a little more clarification. But, never are rules taken lightly. WFC Cheferees make sure of that!
WFC has implemented a Points Deduction process, administered by Cheferees and WFC Officials, to address any possible infractions to the rules herein. The severity of the infraction will determine the number of points deducted or if a team disqualification is necessary. All necessary and authorized deductions will be subtracted from a team’s overall score from any particular category of competition in which the infraction occurred. For example, an infraction penalty during the Signature Round will result in a deduction from the overall Signature score of that team’s entry.
