Clan Arts and Sciences Competition 2018

This year’s theme is fairy tales! Fairy tales and folk legends are found in every culture across the globe, and are the basis for a lot of the fantasy standards we take for granted today. The challenge this year is to enter pieces inspired by or created from descriptions in a fairytale! Adherence to the theme WILL be taken into account when judging, and PLEASE do explain how your entry fits the theme!

Let’s see those witches broomsticks, magical cloaks, and legendary weapons!

Categories:

  • Dragon (Sculpture, painting, performance, etc. judged on aesthetic and fine skill)
  • Owl (Swords, shields, armor, etc. judged on utility and workmanship)
  • Garber (Tunics, dresses, etc. judged on form and function as garb)

(More detail: Rules of Play, page 70)

Limitations:

  • Maximum one entry per category, per artisan.
  • Items must not have been previously entered in an Inter-kingdom competition. (Olympiad, Clan, Keep)
  • Due to the nature of the site, food and beverage entries will not be accepted.

Winning:

Each judge will select and rank what they believe to be the best ten entries in each category.

This will award points on the following scale:

1st Place: 10 points 6th: 5 points
2nd: 9 7th: 4
3rd: 8 8th: 3
4th: 7 9th: 2
5th: 6 points 10th Place: 1 point

Each judge is able to assign points for placements 1-10.

The winner is the entrant with the most points after all categories have been judged.
Example

Dame Gwynn enters:

  • Dragon item that places 7th (4 pts) with Judge A, but doesn’t place at all with the others.
  • Garb item that places 8th (3 pts), 7th (4 pts), and 5th (5 pts)

That is a total of 16 points for Gwynn.

Sir Mesreth the Overachiever enters:

  • A single Owl item that places 4th, 3rd, and 5th.

That is a total of 21 points for Mesreth.
