Three Mountains Arts and Sciences / Bardic Championship: Oct 10, 2015

The beautiful and ancient Barony of Three Mountains summons its artisans to compete for the honor of serving as Arts and Sciences Champion on Oct 10, 2015. We are rightfully and enormously proud of our populace and its skills, and we wish to see you challenge yourselves! All those participating, either for display or entry, will see their word fame spread across the mighty Kingdom of An Tir. If you choose to enter this rigorous trial, the format and requirements you seek are listed below.

Christ United Methodist Church

Entries must be period items made by your hand, period performances, or research papers on a period topic. Each item must be accompanied by documentation explaining the item’s use or purpose, time and place of origin, and the process used to make the item. Performances must be accompanied by documentation on the history of the piece and style. More detailed and in-depth documentation is strongly encouraged.

There are three themed categories:

1) Japanese, 2) Wearable (including clothing, accessories, armor, etc.), and 3) Consumable (including food, drink, personal care lotions, soaps, candles, etc – anything that gets used up). While you are welcome to present previous projects, they must never have been entered in a competition.

Display participants will not be formally judged, but the best in each category will win a prize.

Dual entry participants are eligible to be the Champion of Arts and Sciences. One  entry must fall into one of the theme categories. The second is entirely your choice. Dual entries will be evaluated by a panel of three judges, using the Kingdom Arts and Science Championship judging forms.

Each Championship entrant must draft a letter of intent to be read during morning court and presented to their Excellences.

Each Championship entrant will be provided with a table the day of the event. You are encouraged to bring a tablecloth and other items to enhance your display. How you display your work and present your knowledge to the populace is an important factor in the judging.

The Championship winner will be awarded a prize, great word fame, and the duty and honor of attending Their Excellencies in court at baronial events. The Champion generally organizes the next year’s competition. There is also regalia of the office which you may wear during your term, such that everyone will know of your triumph.
