A&S Competitions in Lochac

A wide range of Arts and Sciences competitions are held each year in Lochac, including guild competitions, local competitions, and the Kingdom A&S Competitions. The format of local and guild competitions varies, but kingdom competitions have a set format explained on this site. 

Kingdom A&S Competitions

For each crown event (the crown tourneys and coronations), there is a linked kingdom A&S competition. These competitions run for the full three months leading up to the crown event, and entries can be judged locally at any point during this period. (Local A&S officers organise the judging of these entries.) Entries are also judged at the event itself, and the winners are announced in court. 

In each competition, there are three ‘themes’, and five judging categories. The themes change for each competition – you can see a list of the upcoming themes here. The categories are:

  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced
  • Group entry
  • Youth

Entries are judged against a standardised point scheme, to ensure consistency between different judges.
