JSC Committee

The JSC is the second oldest sub-committee of the British Koi Keepers Society (BKKS), second only to the National Show Committee. However, we have the honour of being the one with the longest uninterrupted service. We are second too in the world’s JSC’s behind the Japanese Zen Nippon Airinkai (ZNA).

Can You Judge Koi?

Why not join the BKKS - JSC (Judging Standards Committee) and learn how to judge at shows throughout the UK? We will be starting a new training programme this Autumn.

You will need good knowledge of koi Show Classes and the varieties within, an understanding of how koi shows are run (ideally having worked at your Section show), and an awareness of show rules & guidelines.

The training programme consists of an annual seminar and practical training at koi shows. The seminar lasts a day and is in three parts:

1) A written exam paper with 60 questions
2) A benching test - 30 projected photos for you to classify the koi into its show class and identify its variety.
3) A Judging test - 3koi photos, and you must place them 1st, 2nd &3rd. The answers are discussed in detail to act as a learning exercise.

To apply, you must be a fully paid-up member of the BKKS and be able to travel to koi shows around the UK. If you are interested in joining the programme, please apply with the form below.
