ARE THERE ANY BACKSTAGE RULES?
No alcohol is permitted at any WBFF event. This is not the image we want to portray. No alcohol is allowed backstage at any WBFF event. Competitors caught with alcohol will be disqualified.
All competitors are responsible for their personal belongings. Please be selective in regards to what you bring to a show. The WBFF or venues will not be responsible for lost or stolen items.
Due to the large number of competitors at WBFF shows, there is limited space backstage. We provide helpers for competitors backstage, therefore no trainers, friends, family members or assistants are allowed in the backstage area. WBFF shows run professionally, and therefore need everything to work efficiently backstage.
Please have everything prepared before you arrive.
All competitors are expected to respect their fellow competitors. We want to create a positive atmosphere backstage where everyone can feel comfortable and at ease.
The WBFF will not tolerate inexcusable behaviour backstage. Please help out one another to make the whole event a positive and memorable event for all.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER COMPETING WITH THE WBFF? HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER OUT THERE?
The WBFF is different from any other organization out there to date. It was founded by a professional athlete, so we understand the needs as well as the ups and downs of all competitors. We will utilise our relationships with all our partners to create sponsorship and marketing opportunities for the competitors and all of its members, in an industry that is constantly growing. Our events are second to none and they are the most professionally produced shows in the industry.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO COMPETE AND DO YOU HAVE ANNUAL FEES?
WBFF does not charge an annual fee. Each show is charged on a show by show basis. Head to www.wbffshows.com.au/register for more information.
