Enter the Experienced competition.  Laurels are welcome to enter the category in which they received their Laurel, but should enter as Experienced Competitors.

Novice and Experienced Artisans alike will be able to compete in 9 tracks of categories.  There will be a Novice and an Experienced winner for each category and an overall Novice and Experienced winner for each track.

The Competition Categories are:

Track One - Small Work/Cord Making:  Counted Embroidery, Non-Counted Embroidery, Cord Making

Competitors may enter more than one piece per category, however multiple entries will be judged as a single body of work.  For example, if three embroidered bags are entered in track one, they will be judged as a group.

Keeper of the Central Flame Arts Triathlon

Do you have entries in several categories over at least two tracks? Competitors who enter at least three categories over two or more tracks will be eligible for Keeper of the Central Flame Triathlon!  For example, an embroidered bag can be entered into Track One:  Non-Counted Embroidery with a drawstring entered in Track One:  Cord Making.  The bag can also be entered into Track Four:  Accessories/Shoes. 

The winner of the Triathlon will be named Keeper of the Central Flame and will hold that title until the next competition is held!

Judging

Judging will be face to face with a team of judges.  The Kingdom A&S Rubric will be used to judge all entries.  That rubric will be available on the event web site in September.
