Queen's Prize Competition
Queen’s Prize is a novice-level Kingdom arts and sciences competition held once a year.
As a novice-level event, entrants may not have Grants of Arms-level or higher level awards in the Arts or Sciences (for example, Silver Hammer, Calon Lily, or Laurel, or outside kingdom equivalent). A Knight or Pelican could enter Queen's Prize if they do not have one of those awards, and so could someone with no awards.
Each entrant must have a sponsor that does have a Grants of Arms-level or higher level awards in the Arts or Sciences (for example, Silver Hammer, Calon Lily, or Laurel). The sponsor may help the entrant but may not do any part of the project for them.
Entrants do not compete against each other directly. The entries are judged against themselves using standard kingdom judging criteria (see below). Three judges discuss each entry face-to-face, working in consensus. Displays are encouraged and documentation is highly encouraged.
Her Majesty, who is Patroness of the Arts and Sciences, announces in Court the entry which most impresses her, which is the reason it is called Queen’s Prize. There is often also a Judge's Choice award.
