Cornish Rex Show Cats, Hall of Fame
December 18th, 1976 saw a new Cat Show enter the calendar, the Supreme Cat Show. The show was organised by the GCCF, which was founded by the Cat Clubs in 1910.
To participate in the show, all the cats have to qualify by winning open classes at other Championship Shows, licenced by GCCF. Today the Supreme has developed into a large and prestigious show and is held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham each November.
A new method of judging was introduced - Ring Judging - all the cats are taken from their decorated pens to the judging rings, where judges sit facing the public to judge the cats and may be heard giving commentaries on their judging. The Supreme show produces Supreme title holders, the top title which a cat can achieve, and only given at this one show.
