      Greetings to the populace of the Outlands,

      I hope everyone had a wonderful time at Kingdom Arts & Sciences.  It was a busy but fulfilling day.  There were many amazing artisans who competed and brought their beautiful works.  It was an extremely close competition.  Everyone who entered had obviously put time and heart into their entries and they were all awesome.  I will soon  post pictures of some of the entries to the Kingdom Arts and Sciences website so those of you who were unable to attend can view some of the great items that were at the competition.

      At the end of the day after a lot of hard work from all of the judges  who conversed with a roomfull of creative artisans, and from the autocrat and her team, we are happy to announce we have a new Champion.

      The Champion for this year’s competition was THL Geoffrey fitz Roberts.  Master Omar Mohammud Mirazazdeh placed second in the competiton and Lord Wilhelm Meis placed third.  All three had amazing entries.  I also want to thank THL Mirabel de Malmesberie for serving as our champion the past year.

       Due to time constraints, I was unable to announce the division winners because there was not time to get the calculations done before the close of site.  Below are the winners of each division.  Congratulations to each of you. I know we all enjoyed seeing your entries and I am so glad you were each in the competition and I look forward to seeing everyone again next year.  This will also be posted in the Kingdom newsletter.

      I also would like to thank my extremely busy and hard working judging staff who invested their own time, energy and love of the arts to make this competition possible.  Most had a very large judging load and they were all troopers.  I also want to especially thank the logistics team that helped organize the sheets and worked on the calculations at the end of the day.  Mistress Maimuna, THL Marc Antoine de Larue, and THL Elise porteresse d'yaue, your help with all the paperwork was invaluable and I appreciate it more than I can say.   It was very hectic and we had much to do to establish the champion and second and third place before court ended.  Thank also to Mistress Anna McTaggart the Kingdom Scribe and THL Elise porteresse d'yaue for getting the scrolls ready to make their grand entrance into court.  

      Below is the list of judges who volunteered.  Thank you again. This event cannot happen without you and I know that there is a huge commitment of time and energy that you all gave.  I am so glad you were here for the artisans and I know they were too.

      Finally, thank you to the shire of Drygestan for hosting the event.  It was a beautiful site.  The hall may have been a little small for the incredible turnout we had, but your hospitality and willingness to help made all the difference.  Special Thanks to Mistress Maimuna for being such an awesome event steward and to her staff for wearing so many hats throughout the day. I would also like to give thanks to HE Gilliana Leigh Gallwey for assisting with our needs throughout the morning especially our electronic ones. Thanks also to the Crown for their support of both this event and the Arts and Sciences in the Outlands. You continue to inspire us.


      In Service,

      Baroness Bianca della Vittoria
