What Is It?
Like the Laurel’s Prize, these are non-judged artisan display where artisans typically sit with their work and are present for questions/kudos/etc. In this case, every artisan who displays is sponsored and the sponsor supplies a Prize for every artisan sponsored.
How will we be doing this virtually this year?!?!
This year the display will be VIRTUAL (sadly... but we don't want to miss it!!)
The display will be held using Zoom Breakout Rooms, where artisans can go to a breakout room to show and tell and have smaller group discussions
Artisan's will need internet access and some form of camera to be able to display but this can be done using webcams or smartphone cameras. Anything works!! (Viewers of the display are not required to have cameras)
Those with an A&S-type award of AoA level or below may be sponsored to display.
This only pertains to Arts & Sciences awards (e.g. a Knight of the SCA with a Golden Maple Leaf is eligible to display.)
Those with an A&S-type award of GoA level or Laurels are the sponsors.
A person with a GoA level A&S type award may sponsor 2 artisans.
A Laurel may sponsor 4 artisans.
The Queen, or other key sponsor, may sponsor artisans as they and the event coordinator see fit.
Each sponsor must supply a prize for every artisan that they sponsor.
Sponsors can work with their sponsored artisans to help them be ready.
Every Artisan receives a prize
Starting with the Queen (or key Sponsoring person) who awards a prize to whomever they would prefer.
If there are other key sponsors, such as local Baronage, they might go next.
All artisans not otherwise recognized is then called in random order to make a choice from the loot present.
Come ready for a great day!
Recommending that Artisans bring 1-2 items (put your best foot forward!) But, since this is not a formally judged occasion, there isn't a hard limit.
No requirement for multiple categories.
Documentation is not required (but totally welcome!)
Display is open for all to view!
