The Panthera Master Cup contest is now open for registration through February 28, 2017. Presented in collaboration with Ivoclar Vivadent and Inside Dental Technology, the contest is open to any dental technician, dentist, or denturist. Submissions will be reviewed by five juries using predetermined criteria to evaluate all work and choose the winners. There are no fees to register or participate.
On March 3, each contestant will be shipped an upper and lower model with bite registration. The upper model will be a five-implant case with a ReBourke Bar, and the lower arch will be a four-implant model with a wrap-around bar. Extra lab analogs will also be provided to complete the case; all other required material will have to be provided by contestants.
Participants will need to document each step of their work, which can be done using images, video, and written materials. Final documentation can be submitted in the contestant's choice of media, whether hard copy (print), digital copy (Word, spreadsheet documents), video, etc. Completed cases must be shipped to Panthera by May 31 at the latest; winners will be announced in September.
First place winner will receive a weekend trip to Quebec City and over $10,000 in cash and prizes, as well as an interview to be published in Inside Dental Technology. Second and third place winners will receive $1,750 and $750 in cash and prizes, respectively.
