Plan to bring ways to keep your entries heated or cooled and non-plug-in electronics.

ENTRY ELIGIBILITY
• Anyone may enter this competition. You do not need to be running for an office to do so.

• YOU MUST HAVE A WRITE-UP OF EACH ENTRY. The write up must include materials used (ingredients for food entries - VERY IMPORTANT); short summary of the process used to create; and you may include any notes about the item you feel may enhance it. Special situations will be considered.

• No items that have been given awards or have been entered in a previous Crown Quals or Dragon Master may be entered.

• Vintners is not an available entry group in this competition.

• Limit of 3 entries per category.

• Cooking Entries – Bring all necessary serving utensils including plates and/or bowls.

• Written Entries – All entries, except publications, must be 5 pages or less. You must bring 5 copies of all written entries except publications, publications only require one copy.

• Bardic Entries – Please be considerate with the usage of your time.

SCORING SYSTEM
We will be using the 0-5 point scale. For the required number of entries for your intended office, please check the corpora. Scores to determine qualification will be based upon an average of the scores with a 3.0 being the required level for qualification. No bonus points will be given for winning individual categories. No more than three entries per category will be judged. Entrants can select whether present their entries personally or as the event proceeds when signing in. Feedback will not be anonymous, and scores will be available by the end of the weekend.

CATEGORIES

Cooking
Entries will be judged on taste, texture, appetizing presentation and difficulty. There will be 4 judges and entrants will need to provide enough of each entry for all of them to taste. Be prepared to have a way to maintain your own dish until it can be judged (hot/cold). Bring plates, cups and utensils if they will be needed to judge your entry.
• Appetizer: A dish intended to be served as an appetizer.
• Main: Course: A dish intended to be served as a main course.
• Dessert: A dish intended to be served as a dessert.
• Other: A dish or drink that does not fit into any other category.

Writing
Entries will be judged, on form, content, GRAMMAR, SPELLING and usefulness to Amtgard knowledge. With the exception of publications, please limit these entries to 5 pages or less.
• Factual: Writing that presents factual information such as a process, event or research of some kind. Examples would be weaponsmithing instructions, a recounting of an Amtgard event or a history of the Mongols. When presenting researched information, it is a good idea to cite references and give credit.
• Fictional: Writing that is not intended to be factual such as persona histories and stories.
• Poetry: Poetic verse.
• Publications: Published works such as newsletters, books, collections of articles, etc. These entries are judged on the editorial content only, such as presentation, suitability of the collection, format, etc. It is not necessary that the entrant have written every article. However, articles should never be published without the author's consent and credit should be given. Any work not done by the entrant should be noted.

Bardic
Entries will be judged on difficulty and entertainment value.
• Singing: A vocal presentation with some expectation of rhythm and pitch.
• Oratory: A vocal presentation with no expectation of rhythm or pitch; i.e. Storytelling, jokes and theatrical pieces.
• Instrumental: A musical presentation performed on an instrument with some expectation of rhythm and pitch.
• Dance: A presentation of bodily movement with some expectation of rhythm.

Art
Entries will be judged on artistic presentation and the difficulty of the medium.
• 2-D Art: Art intended to be viewed from only one side such as drawings, paintings, stained glass, relief carving, computer graphics, etc.
• 3-D Art: Art intended to be viewed from at least 3 sides such as sculptures, painted miniatures, stuffed animals, blown glass, etc.
People often enter things into this category that would do better in Passive Construction. 3-D art is judged primarily on artistic presentation; Passive Construction is judged primarily on construction. A stained glass box would go into either 3-D Art of Passive Construction depending on what the entrant wanted to focus.


Garb
Entries will be judged on durability, attractiveness, design and difficulty.
• Fighting: A major item of garb intended to be worn in battle such as tunics, pants, tabards, shirts, etc.
• Court: A major item of garb not intended to be worn in battle such as dresses, doublets, cloaks, etc.
• Monster: A major item of garb that would qualify as garb for a monster in the Amtgard Rulebook.
• Favor: A garb accessory intended to be worn on one's belt.
• Jewelry: A garb accessory intended to be worn as jewelry such as crowns, coronets, necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc.
• Accessory: A minor item of garb such as hats, belts, shoes, bracers, etc. that would not fit into another category.

Construction
Entries are judged on construction, presentation, difficulty and application to proposed function.
• Passive: Something not intended to go onto the battlefield such as boxes, steel weapons, decorative wooden weapons, stuffed animals, etc. This is a category for constructed items that would not fit into another category.
• Active: Something intended to be used on the battlefield such as ballistae, bows, fighting wands or throwing mugs. This is a generic category for things that would not fit into armor, weapon, or shield construction yet are still intended for rough battlefield use.
• Armor: Something that would qualify as armor by the rulebook standards in Amtgard such as padded armor, chainmail, brigantine, greaves, thigh plates, helmets (although they would not actually count as armor), etc.
• Weapon: Something that would qualify as a weapon by the rulebook standards in Amtgard such as sword, spear, arrows, rocks, throwing daggers, madus, etc.
• Shield: Something that would qualify as a shield by rulebook standards in Amtgard.
• Banner: Something intended to be used as a banner and judged on construction and appearance.

Rose
Anything made for the benefit of the club intended to be donated to the club. These are scored on their construction and design as well as their contribution to Amtgard.

Smith
Write-ups of battlegames, quests, original monsters, etc.

Good luck to all participants, and may the Ood be ever in your favor!

Why is Vinteners tossed. Must it be alcoholic? Strictly speaking Vintners are of the vine, yet hops are not of viticulture. Why can't vinters include non-alholic beverages especially at dry locations?

Vitners is specifically an alcoholic category. If you want to enter a beverage, that would fall under Cooking - Other.
