***ATTENTION ALL PRO ATHLETES***: We welcome PRO's from all (NGA recognized) federations and won their pro card in an open class of 5 or more contestants. The NGA does not award Pro Card's in Pro Qualifier Classes of only 1-4 contestants. Consult the NGA by laws for the most current list of recognized pro organizations on the NGA WEBSITE. To compete in this show as a PRO, you will need 1) a pro card from a recognized org., 2) Order a NGA Pro card from the NGA WEBSITE (providing proof of pro status in your current org.) 3) Register using the link above, 4) Send in your entry fees by check or electronic funds transfer, 5) Fulfill the polygraph requirement of passing a test within 90 days of show date and providing proof of passing to the promoter prior to or at check in. 6) Your pro card must MATCH the division name you are entering (e.g., Pro Bikini cards only qualify athletes to compete as a Pro in Pro Bikini, Pro Figure card only qualify the athlete to compete in Pro Figure. There can be no crossovers from Pro Figure to Bikini or Vice-Versa). If a Pro Bikini athlete wishes to earn a PRO Figure card they can compete in PRO Bikini and crossover to OPEN FIGURE for a shot at Pro Figure qualification. If you hold a Pro Card from an organization other than NGA, you must have won your pro card in a class of at least 5 contestants to compete as a pro in the NGA. Starting in 2022, the NGA is combining women's bodybuilding into women's physique.
