EBC Competition Rules

-Minimum Age to enter the EBC is 25yrs old. If at any time the EBC leadership or Admin has doubts about you being of minimum age your entry will be denied.

-If you are banned even for a temporary length at any time during the entry portion and up to the prize announcement you WILL be disqualified. There's too much money on the line to let douchebags be eligible.

-If at any time a competitor steps out of line in questioning the EBCs integrity there will be no second chances. No favors and no love. You're gone. Period.

-No arguing / bitching about judges decisions. We don’t mind constructive result discussion, but questioning integrity will not be tolerated. If admin feels you cross the line you will be banned from future competition.

-Soliciting Sources for sponsorship is unacceptable. Spamming/Soliciting Srcs looking for free handouts is cheap and is not viewed by EBC Leadership in good taste. Soliciting/Spamming is viewed on par with Promo Whoring. Should it be brought to any of our attention that this soliciting becomes an issue expect some consequences to come down from the Mods.

Sponsorship is allowed when the Src engages the member on their own volition. Sources may choose to do so because they have existing experience with the member as a customer or based on past EBC competitions results.

Below is the list of MANDATORY poses. Failure to cover a mandatory pose will result in disqualification. All poses must be in your pics. There are no second chances, so submit early to give yourself a chance to go back and fix it before the deadline passes. You may fix your entry pics up until the deadline. Do not wait until the last second and then realize you screwed up. I repeat, there are no second chances.

Pitcures MUST be submitted in the following order.

-Front Double Bicep

-Front lat spread

-Side chest (either)

-Side tricep (either)

-Back double bicep

-Back lat spread

-Abdominal/Thigh

-Most Musclular

-Relaxed Front

-Relaxed Back

-One or two final pics of you holding a current newspaper dated with the DATE you take the pictures. IF YOU POST PICS ON 3/9/19 THE NEWSPAPER MUST BE DATED 3/9/19. If you must, please post two pics to accurately capture the date and YOURSELF, please take a separate pic of the paper with the date clearly visible and a second pic of you holding the paper. This allows us to validate a correct timeline to ensure pics are current. This pic is critical to being compliant in your entry to the competition. Do everything possible to give us a clear pic of the date and you with it. Try and use a major publication like a USA Today or a Wall Street Journal so you do not give away your location. Using your city’s local paper is a dead give away of location. Please be secure about location if possible.

No doctoring of pictures whatsoever. Air brushing, photoshopping etc of your BODY will be found and you’ll be disqualified as a result. (This does not include your face. Never post your face in a picture on Eroids ever. If you post your face I’m disqualifying you for being STUPID) Due to the lack of sportsmanship involved by photoshopping your body, you may also be excluded from future EBCs.

For competitors with tattoos, you may use a cover up cream to conceal your tattoos. You must fully disclose this on your submission page. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of your entry.

-Full body, head to toe in ALL SHOTS. Identical lighting and background for the opening and closing shots (if there is a legit reason why this is not possible Permission must be granted by the EBC leadership).
-Ensure that you submit all mandatory poses for BOTH start and finish pictures.
-You must submit all mandatory shots for both start and finish in same order listed above. This is to make the judging process more fluid and seamless.
-Post a brief yet precise description of your cycle
-Please list starting and ending weight and BF% if known. This will help the judging process be as accurate as possible. Don’t think about lying about weight or BF% if egregiously inaccurate you could risk disqualification.

Beginning on 3/9/19 at 0000hrs midnight the submission button will be active and members can start submitting their pics. The deadline for entry pics is on 3/16/19 @ 2359hrs. The competition will run a full 12 wks and closing deadline will be 6/8/19 @ 2359hrs.

Non-compliance with any of these rules will be justification for disqualification at anytime. All disqualifications are up to the discretion of the EBC Leadership.

question about posing this 4
"-Front Double Bicep

-Side chest (either)

-Side tricep (either)

-Back double bicep"
Women in IFFB have little diffrent posing than man. Hands in diffrent way.
Can I pose like women or men?

  1. Biceps front and back - Man have hand closed , but women havr to have hands open. What to do?
  2. Side chest and triceps - women CAN do like this http://abba.ab.ca/womensPhysique.html

The open hand style is designed to be more elegant/feminine. I would suggest doing the poses like they are outlined here. To keep everyone consistent

Put your hands how you want, open or closed not to big of a deal. Just make sure it is the required pose we are looking for. Make sure your hands are the same in beginning and ending photos though. Side chest, triceps you will be grabbing your wrist. If we don't feel the poses are accurate we will let you know so you have time to correct them. To make it more consistent, I would just recommend going with the standard male bodybuilding poses.

Lol you hVe a tattoo on the back of your head? Or do you have one of those Sharpei heads with a ton of wrinkles? If it’s a dead giveaway of your identity then yes. We won’t be judging your head so feel free cover your head.

I want to clarify something in the before pics. The gut. Are we expected to hold tight or can we let it hang for “theatrical” purposes and a more impressive before and after?

  • Carlos Danger's picture
  • EXP
  • 793
 

This really is more of a Makwa question he’s the Chief Judge, but all I can say is be yourself man. There’s a difference between having a natural belly and distending your gut out. Theatrics goes both way as well, someone who has a rounder core trying to hold it in for pride has a theatrical impact for the good. Someone who is pushing to be the best in every shot along the way will earn a little more respect from me than someone who is already in great shape and trying to distend the midsection.

Let your gut hang where it normally does. If that means your gut is naturally hanging so low it’s covering your dick or if it’s normally in decent shape then so be it. I also don’t expect folks to hold a tight vacuum either. Everything is about staying within reason. A little theatrics is all good and won’t hurt anyone but putting on a full out Oscar performance will make someone who is already in great shape stand out for the wrong reason. I hope that makes sense.

If we see folks going so far out of their normal silhouette to distend might force a discussion between Mak and I.
So moral of the story is be yourself. Let your hard work do the talking for you =)

I appreciate it bro. The past EBCs we’re done almost by the seat of our pants. We out all of our energy into it but there was not a lot of planning for the future. We didn’t think of creating a sustainable foundation. A lot was done via PM and that got lost along along the way. This time around I wanted things planned and put in a group so that way it became permanent. Whether I’m organizing or someone else. The foundation will always be there to be referenced. I’m hoping to maintain a running diary of sorts for issues that will require our focus to help us improve or to help us provide greater clarity for all of you. I’m calling it the EBC parking lot.
Anything we can do to improve or to reference later down the road is in our EBC group. From the scoring criteria to the rules to tech related topics to the aforementioned parking lot, it’s all in there. Wish I had done this in prior EBCs.
The EBC is a labor of love for me. One that I have a great deal of pride in and respect for. With that said, I hope everyone enjoys the show!

I have a request regarding this part of the rules:
Identical lighting and background for the opening and closing shots (if there is a legit reason why this is not possible Permission must be granted by the EBC leadership).

I'll leave the country I'm currently in after approximately 4 weeks into the contest. How do I best ensure to comply with the rules?
I'm sure I can find a similar white background anywhere. But the exact same lighting might be impossible. I know where this is coming from as lighting makes hell of a difference if exploited. I don't want or need that. So please help me out here!

Best way to pull this off would be to pick some kind of s sheet with a print behind you that you can bring with you and hang behind you for ur after photos and as far as lighting get yourself one of those clip lights and face it towards you in the same degree with the same bulb style and wattage with the camera in the same position as your before pictures making it all close effective and easy to travel with.......hope that helps....
