Only the concept is required for the contest, with the actual crafting of the object designed to be done later in a a time mutually agreeable to you and the church.

We in the SCA have been offered the chance of a Medieval lifetime – Father John Vass representing Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church ( Baltimore , MD ) has requested that a contest be held to craft a holder in the Medieval style for two of their most sacred objects, both related to their patron saint, St. Barbara of the Tower. I have agreed to sponsor this contest and judging will take place at the 2009 Kingdom of Atlantia Arts and Sciences Festival on March 7, 2009, at Winchester, Maryland.The objects are her icon--a painting in the Russian Medieval style--which has a silver halo crowning her head, and her relic, a bone sliver, which is in a small closed silver box. (See Father John's photos and measurements. )
