Trimaris hosts one Kingdom Arts & Sciences Faires each year. This Faire usually occurs in January, but the date is not set.
The Art & Sciences Faire is a traditional, academic style Faire, in which individual pieces are entered into a specific category. This is an academic and artistic faire in which the entrant competes against a set parameter of rules at their chosen level. The emphasis is on education and constructive feedback. There are three levels of entry at each Faire: Novice, Journeyman, and Masterwork. Entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges and scored according to the criteria specified for each level of entry. Judging forms for each level are available to all entering prior to the faire and should be used to guide the development and completion of your project.
The Kingdom Art Sci Faire is also where champions are chosen for Gulf Wars Art Sci Competition. Champions may be chosen from Journeyman or Masterwork entries.
Additional Arts & Sciences Faires
The three regional faires follow the same basic format as the Kingdom faires, including the use of the same rubrics in the Novice, Journeyman, and Masterwork categories. This allows for more opportunities for coaching and feedback leading up to the Kingdom Faire. There are also often themed competitions at smaller local events.
What is a Gulf Wars Champion?
Every year there is an Arts & Sciences Champions Battle at Gulf Wars between the four primary kingdoms “at war”: Trimaris, Ansteorra, Meridies, and Gleann Abhann. The projects with both the highest scores and ability to be repeated are chosen to represent Trimaris at the Arts & Sciences Champions Battle. Being chosen for a Gulf Wars Champion is a huge honor.
