Greetings to the Populace artisans of AEthelmearc from THL Eleanore Godwin, Kingdom Deputy A&S Minister.
Announcing a new A&S challenge for the artisans of the Kingdom: A one year long Event Token Competition, running from Spring AEcademy 2019 to Spring AEcademy 2020!
How many event tokens have you kept over the years because they are great memories, or just beautiful? Well, we want groups to up their game and put some thought into their event tokens!
So, how does one participate you ask? Volunteer to make your group’s tokens for an event they put on!
First; every group can have at least one entry, and as many as three!
Second; groups have from June 15th 2019 Spring AEcademy to Spring (June date to be announced) AEcademy 2020 to make tokens for their events and present their entries for the competition at Spring AEcademy 2020.
Divisions are :1. Kingdom Event tokens, and 2. All Other Events tokens. The reason for this is that the Kingdom events often have a higher budget for tokens, whereas non-kingdom events do not
Categories are: A. Period tokens, B. Useful tokens, and C. Creative tokens.
Each group may have 1 entry in each category, for a max of three total entries. One token, one category. So, if your group hosted a Kingdom event, the token from that event would be put in the Kingdom Event token Division, in one of the three Categories, Period, Useful, or Creative. If your group hosted a regular event, that token can be entered in one of the 2. All
Other Events tokens Divisions Categories, A,B, or C. If your group held 3 regular events in the time frame, your group gets to enter 3 different tokens in 3 different categories! If your group held one Kingdom event, that token gets to be entered into the Kingdom Division in one of the three Categories. Say your group also held two regular event; those two tokens would be entered in the All Other Events token Division in two of the three categories for a total of 3 entries!
I think this will be an exciting year for the artisans of AEthelmearc, and I look forward to seeing all the entries at Spring AEcademy next Spring!
