- WAR OF THE WINGS V
Performing Arts War Point Competition
Coordinated by Lady Rosanella Vespucci
Queen's Royal Bard and Kingdom Deputy of Performing Arts
Greetings to all of the Knowne World both far and near, all those who participate in the Performing Arts and all those who enjoy being entertained and inspired by those who perform. The Performing Arts War Point Competition for the War of the Wings V will be as follows:
ALL PERFORMING ARTS DISCIPLINES ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE! We invite all those who sing, dance, juggle, play musical instruments, write poetry, tell stories, and perform plays and dramatic readings to come and be a part of the competition. Groups are also encouraged!
THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT TO INCORPORATE THE WOW THEME SO ALL ENTRIES ARE WELCOME! Extra points will be awarded to those who are able to incorporate the theme, but it is not required. There will be three rounds of competition and performers must be chosen by the Judges to advance to the next round. Round One will be Participant's Choice you may choose your own favorite, even if it is one that you have done many times before and any style. Round Two will be Inspirational you may choose any piece that would inspire us all to greatness, whether it be in war, in love, or in the arts. Round Three will be the Finals. The Judges again will decide which performers will be invited to Round Three which will again be Participant's Choice, but must be a piece different from the ones performed in the other rounds.
THERE WILL BE MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO WIN! There will be judges from all the disciplines to be sure that the outcome is as fair and balanced as can be. Each entry will be scored on ORIGINALITY, SKILL LEVEL, INCORPORATION OF WOW THEME, PRESENTATION, ENTERTAINMENT VALUE, and DOCUMENTATION. So if you are unable to pull together documentation, you can make up your score in one of the other areas and so on. This is also a great way for new performers to receive great educational feedback from some of the Kingdom's most talented performers. A winner will be selected in each of the scoring areas and one OVERALL WINNER will be named. Each winner will receive a prize and the overall winner will also receive a War Point for the Team of their choice.

- Greetings Lady Rose,Which kingdom is hosting this? That way I would know if there is a possibility that I might be able to attend. Other useful information in this vein would be: the date that this war will be taking place, and perhaps the address of the site.What exactly is the "WOW Theme"? I realize that entrants are not required to incorporate this theme into any potential entries, but it would help to know what the theme is. That way incorporating or not incorporating the theme can be a conscious choice and not a matter of blind chance.Thanks in advance for the additional information,Maurin
