Many FCI countries have been awarding “Regional Titles” to dogs which have which have met the requirements for the achieve the specific title. In The FCI Americas Section for example, they have a few regional titles such as Pan American Champion, Latin American Champion and the likes. These titles are awarded at shows held specifically for these titles in countries within the FCI Americas Section and have attracted many exhibitors to consider attending these shows, to the point that even dogs from other continents travel transcontinental just to enter these shows and to attain the title.
With the diminishing number of entries worldwide, many countries and Sections have found ways and means to attract more exhibitors to enter their shows and “titles at stake” play a major part in enticing more entries to join the shows.
Presently, the Asia-Pacific Section does not have any regional titles. These titles are not “illegal” as far as FCI is concerned and they have no jurisdiction over such regional titles.
Therefore, the creation of the Asia-Pacific Champion would be a good way to promote our dog shows and entice dogs from overseas to attend our shows.
Organization of ASIA-PACIFIC Shows:
Any NCO that wishes to organise more than four APCS in a calendar year, may apply for TWO more APCS provided they furnish proof of the nominated additional show getting a historical entry of more than 300 dogs. In the event that the additional APCS is sanctioned but the number of exhibits at the show falls short of 300 exhibits, then the organizing NCO will still be liable to pay the APCS levy for a minimum of 300 dogs.
How to apply for APCS show
All the NCOs within the ASIA-PACIFIC Section that are interested in organizing the ASIA-PACIFIC Championship Show must have the APCS CAC Certificates available at the show. A common design will be supplied by the FCI APAC secretariat, but can be printed locally in each home NCO.
