Kingdom A&S Champion Contest
For the most up to date please visit Their Royal Highnesses Website
Bring your best, recent, work for the display. Documentation is always nice, but is not required for this contest. The winner will be chosen by Their Royal Highnesses and will be invited to serve as the A&S Champion. Their Highnesses would expect that artisan to support and encourage the arts during Their Reign and to stand with Them in Court. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Their Highnesses dirctly ( through the website linked above).
Team Entry A&S Competition
Teams will consist of a Laurel & Apprentice (must be their own Apprentice) or any other type of Mentor & Student pair. The team will select one item to complete together. The entry must be accompanied by brief (1-3 page) documentation explaining the piece, its historical relevance, and materials & methods used. Entries will be anonymous.
This competition will be judged by members of the populous of any rank in the following scale:
1 vote = 1 point for anyone who does not have an A&S award
1 vote = 2 points for Willows and Silver Oaks
1 vote = 3 points for Evergreens
1 vote = 4 points for Laurels
These votes will be counted using different colored beads to indicate their value. The winning team of this competition will receive a donated prize that must be able to be divided to split between them.
Largess A&S Competition
Entries will consist of EITHER a baker's dozen (13) or lucky seven (7) of any item, to be donated following the competition to the Crown for their largess. Each of the 13 or 7 should be the same item, but color and style differences among them are allowed. Entries will be judged via traditional populace bean count. The winner will receive one of each item before all items in the competition are given to the Crown. Entries should be labeled for any allergens that may be included, and should also come with 2 copies of a card with a description of the items, the entrant's name and their local group name. This information will not be kept with the entry during judging, it will be for TRM's later reference.
Reverse Laurel Prize Challenge
Anyone who has a Willow, Silver Oak, or Evergreen, who is not a Laurel, may sponsor a challenge according to criteria they set forth specifically for the attending Laurels. The challenge can be geared toward either or both of the competitions, or it can be a general challenge that any Laurel may participate in, such as a garb or day camp oriented challenge. The sponsoring person is responsible for setting their criteria, providing the prize for their challenge, and for promoting their challenge. All challenges can be provided to staff for inclusion on the website ahead of the event. Each sponsor will handle their own judging and will inform the winner on their own. All prizes should be available the day of the event- no IOUs. Laurels who wish to participate in a challenge via their competition entries will be able to register their entry with the relevant competition coordinator for the sponsors’ reference so that their entries can remain anonymous to the populace.
The event will feature an outside area where artisans will be able to set up displays for all- or partial-day demo and/or hands-on instruction. Artisans will be responsible for their own setups and schedules for the day. If desired, artisans can submit their schedules for inclusion on the website and event program. Displays are welcome for any topic, but those with relevance to the 14th century are encouraged, to fit with the day's theme. Artisans interested in displaying should submit their name, a descriptive name for their display, dimensions of their setup, and a basic description of what they will be doing throughout the day to the coordinator.
A&S class space will be made available for regular classes on an hourly schedule. Classes are welcome on any topic, but those with relevance to the 14th century are encouraged, to fit with the day's theme.
