About the Convention

The International Paper Modelers Convention is a showcase for paper model enthusiasts: builders, designers and collectors. Paper fans young and old come to see the wide range of what is possible to build with simple paper and glue, and even build simple model kits at the "Make and Take" Table. Visitors and participants can trade hobby tips with other paper modelers, show off their creations and see the newest paper kits available.

Visitors to the Convention can vote for their favorite model on display for the People's Choice Award, and there are prizes in many other categories given by the Awards Committee. An important and entertaining part of participating in the annual convention is the awards ceremony held after dinner on Saturday night. The 2017 convention will have a special theme of spacecraft (both real and imagined), so modelmakers are encouraged to prepare their most outstanding work for the competition.
