Entry is open to anyone submitting an application. Acceptance is on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no entry fee.
It is the policy of the North Carolina Shell Show not to limit space for any exhibit. Due to space Cape Fear Museum can provide for the show this year we cannot accommodate very large exhibits without at least one 90 degree turn or a switchback. If you do have a large exhibit we recommend entering early to ensure it is positioned with as few turns as possible.
