“A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!” King Richard III’s cry in Shakespeare’s play echoes through history. But what is a kingdom and what is a horse? Let’s find out at the A&S competition to be hosted at A Kingdom for My Horse, June 28th-30th!
Enter your best piece that represents ‘kingdom’ or ‘horse’. Prizes will be awarded for best in kingdom, best of horse, and best in show. Best in show will go to a gentle who enters the best pair of pieces, one in each category. Entries can be any A&S piece, previously entered elsewhere or completely new. Some form of documentation is requested and recommended but NOT required. Consumables ARE required to have an ingredient list. If you would like to do a performance piece, please contact me no later than the Sunday before the event.
This is a relaxed competition for fun so any and all are welcome to enter!
Any questions regarding the competition can be directed to your lively competition coordinator Eilionora inghean an Bhaird by email or PM on the Book of Faces under her mundane name of Casey Bice.
