Masquerade contestants come for the fame, the glory and that huge trophy,
³Best of Show².  Some of the other coveted Masquerade awards are: 

* Top 4 Awards: These category of awards are presented to the entries that
have shown the best combination of both Presentation and Costume
Craftsmanship. To be eligible for these awards, all costumes of an entry
must be presented at the Preliminary Costume Judging. Any entry that fails
this requirement will not be eligible for any Top 4 Awards. 

* Craftsmanship Awards: These category of awards are presented to the
entries that have shown excellent costume craftsmanship and construction.
The awards are separated by Group and Individual achievement. Individual
entries are further separated into the four skill levels as previously
defined. There are two awards per skill level. To be eligible for these
awards, all costumes of an entry must be presented at the Preliminary
Costume Judging. Any entry that fails this requirement will not be
considered for the Craftsmanship Awards. 

* Presentation Awards: These category of awards are presented to the entries
that have shown excellent stage presentation. This can be either by a
performance or a simple exhibition of a costume. The awards are separated by
Group and Individual achievement. Skill levels are not factored into these
awards. 

* Judges Awards: These category of awards are selected by the Judges for
entries they deem worthy of award but did not fit any of the previous
categories. Each Judge may present one award based on their personal
selection.
