Review Process

ImportFest has an experienced panel of judges that will review each submission against general criteria including fit and finish, quality of workmanship and parts and relevance of modifications. Our selection process is a subjective review of your “images” and “listed modifications”. IMPORTFEST holds the right to accept and/or reject any applicant it sees fit. Our selection process is to help maintain a high level of competition and to ensure each applicant meets our “subjective” standard. Every applicant will be evaluated with consideration to our scoring system and categories list. Priority is awarded to those vehicles that show a high level of competitiveness in their respective class.

Due to the large quantity of submissions we will only be sending out Acceptance emails.

If you do not hear back from us two weeks from the date of your submission it means you have not been accepted. At this time you may re-apply one last time for re-consideration.

* Multiple emails from one applicant will not be viewed so make sure to include your description and images in one email only.

Can I bring my display?

Each competitor space is intended for one vehicle only. You will be permitted to add stanchions provided they circle your vehicle only. Each vehicle space will have a walk thru aisle.

If you would like to setup a display please email details to for review.

Can I park next to my friend?

We have a dedicated section for VIP’s this year. If you and your friend are VIP’s you may park next to each other. Please email to make the request. If you have BASIC registration you will be permitted to park next to your friend provided you arrive at the same time. This means you must enter the building at the same time. We do not save space otherwise.

Can I choose where I want to be on the show floor?

We do have dedicated parking for VIP registrations and selected TEAMS. Basic registration packages do not have designated spaces. Placement is subjective to IMPORTFEST personal on day of setup according to our floor plan.

Can I bring a friend for set up?

Yes. You will be permitted one passenger only. All other passengers must exit the vehicle prior to entering the building.

Why was I not accepted?

Our selection process is a subjective review of your “images” and “listed modifications. IMPORTFEST holds the right to accept or reject any applicant it sees fit. We are looking for vehicles that will be competitive in their respective class.

I do not see an award category for my car? Why not?

Award categories are updated annually according to competition and registration trends. Vehicles not listed in a class category will be grouped into an affiliated category i.e. Domestic Other. If you are not satisfied with the award categories please DO NOT register.

Will you remove or add award categories?

All of the listed categories are guaranteed. We may add a few more.

When do we setup for IMPORTFEST?
