The following link will open a copy of the Champion Evaluation Sheet that will be used by the Champion Selection Committee when evaluating a Champion candidate's Championship Display:
Updates to the judging sheets is a continually ongoing process. Revising the judging sheets provides judges with a better-tuned set of hints for judging each particular category or subcategory, helping to reduce any potential subjectivity introduced due to misunderstanding of the criteria with respect to the entry. The revised judging sheets will also assist entrants when producing an artwork and when preparing documentation to accompany their entry. Each year we hope to provide judging sheet revisions.
Kingdom A&S Competition Pre-registration…
The competition rules specify that all entries in the Open, Novice, Youth, and Children's Divisions are REQUIRED to pre-register. This saves much time and confusion at the event, and allows the A&S Minister to have appropriate judges invited well in advance of the event. There is a DEADLINE: Completed pre-registration forms must be received by the Kingdom Minister of Arts & Sciences, or by the Kingdom Emergency Deputy A&S Minister, BY September 24, 2016.
