|The following describes the format and rules for the Annual King's and Queen's Championships of the Arts and Sciences, to be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Dragonship Haven on February 16th, 2013.|
For those who are not entering the competition, a separate display area will be available.
I encourage past winners who are not entering, to display their current work as an inspiration to others.
You are welcome to enter even if you have won Kings & Queens champions or any other Kingdom event in the past.
Entrants should submit a body of work, which represents both their ability and technical knowledge. For these purposes, a body of work consists of 1-3 central items which may be related to each other or not, at the artist's discretion. Their Royal Majesties encourage each participant to show his/her depth of understanding of the subject and its processes as well as the sciences and technologies used in period to create the item. An example, (not a requirement) of this is a painting as a central item, supporting pieces to this would be perhaps the frame (showing knowledge of how it would have been made, who would have made it, what kind of processes would have been used to achieve the final product and how it would have made it's way to that precise painting – which can be represented in an actual frame and documentation showing a knowledge of these processes or in documentation alone.). Research on the pigmentation and brushes used, how the medium to be painted on would have been prepared are all examples of presenting an understanding of what went into the art and science of creating the painting.
Please clearly mark your central items from your supporting pieces and or documentation. Written documentation must accompany all central item entries except for research papers.
1. All entries must have been created in the past 2 years.
2. All culinary entries must include full ingredient lists; modern sanitary considerations must be taken in their preparation. Entrants are responsible for keeping hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Kitchen facilities may be able to be made available, please contact Rosette de Rhiems or Mistress Renye Wurm if you will need to utilize the kitchen ahead of time.
3. Research entries must be pre-registered by January 1, 2013 and include their research submission.
4. Performance entries must be pre-registered by January 1, 2013, so that arrangements can be made to accommodate them. Performances will be limited to 10 minutes.
5. Pre-registrations should be emailed to the Queen's Champion at onesleeve (at) gmail (dot) com, and must be received no later than two weeks prior to the competition (February 3rd, 2013). It is strongly recommended that you preregister. While it is not required, it will help to ensure that there are enough judges present. Your pre-registration should include:
a. Your SCA Name
b. Your Mundane Name
c. A list of your entries and a one line description of each.
d. If you need special considerations (an electrical outlet, extra table space, etc)
e. Your email address
Prospective entrants are welcome to email me questions at onesleeve (at) gmail (dot) com
If you are interested in judging please contact either the event steward or Caterina Giaocchini with your name and expertise.
In honor of Master Alexander the following challenge has been issued to the artists of the East: in the spirit of Master Alexander you are to bring an art that is new to you with in the last year. Examples of this would be: costuming to calligraphy, or glassblowing to weaving. New techniques within the art that you already practice do not count, glassblowing to enameling of blown glass beakers as an example. Judging will be just on meeting the criteria of the art being new to you, and not on documentation or mastery of the art. Minimal documentation of methods and how this is new to you is required. The intent is to give a supportive venue for trying new arts with out the rigors of full competition judging. The prize is a glass made by Master Alexander.
There will be a long running dayboard and no feast. More event details and scheduling to follow.
