 A&S Competition

What have you been up to since last Mermaids?  and “what were you expecting?”
  • Entrants can submit any A&S project that they have been working on since last Mermaids.  Those long winter months after summer camping season seem to inspire some wonderful projects.  We want to know what you have been up to and what you were expecting….
  • It can be a group or single person project.   
  • The project doesn’t have to be finished, It can be something you are working on but it must have enough progress to display and discuss. 
  • Basic information about the project, what inspired you to make it, and what have you learned in the process is required. 
  • There will be a question and answer session that royalty and the populace are welcome to attend in order to ask questions about the project and give entrants an opportunity to share information about their entry. This gives the artisan the opportunity to talk about the project in more detail and teach others what they have learned or learn from those present who have knowledge to share. 
  • Entrants are to be present to answer questions about the project. 
  • Voting will open after the question answer session to determine the champion and will close a half hour before court.  The champion will be determined by vote tally.
  • Entries will be displayed in the main hall  on Saturday and must be submitted for display before the beginning of the question and answer session.

The question and answer time is still being determined as the schedule is being put together and a time chosen so it does not conflict with any tournaments but also falls during the public demo time.  

Any questions please contact Lady Aoife Órán Bran
