Yes. We could make it Cosmetics and Scents?

Probably. The use of aromatic vinegars for scent purposes (appears to be)
> Wildcrafting ?
Hm.. Interesting question. I'd be inclined, if I understand it properly,
to put Wildcrafting in with Gardening.
Now, how do we judge 'Gardening'? It's a little difficult to pick up your
garden and bring it in, eh?
Here's my idea. It's based on something academics do at conferences,
called a 'Poster Session'. The idea is similar to an exhibition, but what
you bring are handouts and 'posters' with layouts, photographs, etc. as
well as any objects (potted plants, sample plants, etc. that you wish to
bring along and use for your display. These could be attended (in that we
set aside an hour or so when the gardeners/wildcrafters hang out
with their display and people simply come by, look at your posters
and ask questions) or unattended (you set up your poster/display and
people wander by at their own sweet will, perhaps coming to find you at
some point if they have questions, or writing down questions on pads of
paper for that purpose.)
What do you think?
PS here's another category I left out that we will need for an
herbs/apothecaries-only competition: allied arts. Illustration.
Toolmaking. Etc. Related to the above.
