Entrants may enter a single substantial item or a body of work consisting of related items that are connected to each other in a significant and meaningful way, whose methods, materials, and social significance can be dated to before 1600. (Please note that this does not mean that slightly post-1600 material is unacceptable, but it does mean that you must connect post-1600 material to pre-1600 reality.) A body of work will be judged as a single “item*”; individual entries will not be scored. Items can be from a single discipline or from multiple disciplines. In either case, entries should seek tell a coherent and cohesive story about a historic people, time, place, etc.
*Exception: If items requiring the use of two different rubrics are entered (such as a research project and a physical item), both rubrics will be used, and the different rubric scores will be averaged together to obtain a final score.
No item should have won a previous Crown’s Championship, and each item to be judged should have been completed within three years of the competition. Entries may have been entered into (and even won) local/regional A&S competitions. Absentee entries will not be accepted.
Note: The ability of the site to accept Brewing Entries is still TBD.
Documentation will be required of entrants in advance of the competition.
If any entrant has an idea they are not sure will fit the competition format, PLEASE e-mail the Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences, Mistress Elysabeth Underhill and she will be most happy to chat with you on a case by case basis to try and discover the best way to present your work.
