Anyone can participate by entering something made or developed in the last 12 months. It was a judged tourney and the judging was based on the Score Card and Rubric linked here (and posted on the Arts and Sciences webpage).

There was a tie for the winner of this Arts and Science competition. Portions of the Bayeux Tapestry were embroidered by HL Lina Joya of Grantham Keep (left) and a set of arrows over time in England were made by Master Adam of the Wood (right).

All those competing for championships in Archery or Armoured Combat were required to also display a project or perform a bardic piece. These were not necessarily entered in the competition, however.
