In addition, for birds that are class champion IN classes where the above number requirements for points are NOT met, those birds will receive the show points IF they win champion or reserve of the division bantams, large fowl, ducks or geese . For example, a Mottled Houdan that was Champion of the Continental Class of 12 birds would not receive those Qualified Class Champion points, UNLESS the bird went on to win Champion or Reserve Large Fowl, in which case it would receive the Qualified class champion points plus the additional points outlined below.

Note: All of the points in the above table of additional points are additive- that is, a bird winning Champion Large Fowl Chicken, Champion Landfowl, and Grand Champion of Show would receive 6 additional points (2+2+2) along with the appropriate show points for qualified class champion.
   
NOTES:  
Class numbers shown and point allocations. For some shows, especially smaller venues, the numbers of birds shown in a division (large fowl, bantams, ducks, geese, turkeys, guinea fowl) may actually be less than the number required for a qualified class champion. In those cases, the division champions or higher would not receive the show points, but would be allotted the extra champion points. Example: In a show where there are two ducks and two geese, neither division even meets the minimum number of class entries for those two categories. The two birds in each category would get 1 and 2 points respectively for having champion and reserve of the division. If one of these birds would go on to win show champion, then the show points (5, 10, 15 or 25) would be restored and allotted to the winners.

Show division accommodation and point allocations. For shows where not all categories of poultry are allowed or accommodated, the additional master exhibitor points for landfowl, waterfowl or show champions may be withheld or not allocated due to limitations on competition. For example, at an All Bantam Show which does not provide for exhibits of large fowl, waterfowl, turkeys or guinea fowl, the top two bantam champions would be eligible for master exhibitor points for bantams, but not the extra points for landfowl, waterfowl or show champions, because there was not the opportunity for competition with those groups. All-Breed or similarly focused shows where only representatives of a single breed or category (e.g. waterfowl) are provided for shall be eligible for master exhibitor points matching their focus. For example, at an All Old English Game Bantam show, the champions would be eligible for points associated with a qualified class champion (=show points) but not additional points for Champion or Reserve Bantam, Landfowl or Show champions would be allotted.
   
Other exhibitor point adjustments or requirements. Awarding of Master Exhibitor Points is contingent upon shows meeting the other selected requirements of sanctioned show as outlined in the APA Constitution and Bylaws, the APA Show Guidelines. Some of these include, but are not limited to:
 
**Sanctioned show judges. The judging slate at shows must meet the license requirements for a sanctioned meet in order for master exhibitor points to be allotted.

**The exhibitor must be a current member of the American Poultry Association in order to be eligible for master exhibitor points: ·Exhibitors should note that if membership in the APA lapses, then they would lose all exhibitor points earned, and would start over if they rejoined after some period of time.

**When entering a show, the exhibitor must use the exact name that appears on the membership list for the points to be allocated correctly.

**As stated per the APA Show guidelines, the exhibits must be the bona fide property of the exhibitor in order for them to be awarded master exhibitor points.

**Master exhibitor points will be awarded based on the available information provided on the APA show report. If it is not possible to determine eligible class, division or show champions, then those points will not be allotted.

**Master exhibitor points are not awarded for Junior Show winners, nor are APA junior members holding a Junior Membership ($15/ year) that are showing and winning in an open show eligible to earn master exhibitor points. Annual and Endowment Trust Life Members are eligible to earn master exhibitor points.

**Master Exhibitor 100 points, Grand Master Exhibitor 100 points in one variety of one breed, Hall of Fame 1000 points.
