“It is our 20th birthday! Let us celebrate this illustrious event by creating beautiful items that include 20 bulls. Present your work in any medium incorporating 20 bulls into your design or object. Items could be drawn, sewn, embroidered, baked, etc. Documentation is encouraged. EZ-Doc format is acceptable. This competition is designed to showcase your skills as an artisan as the Barony looks to choose its next Baronial A&S Champion!”


Largess Competition:

 A largess competition to further the generosity and hospitality of our faire Barony of Stierbach!

 We invite all artisans who hear this missive to bestow upon our lovely Barony a donation of largess so that our Excellencies may spread the hospitality of Stierbach far and wide. For this competition, there is no minimum quantity of items, and scroll blanks are encouraged for entry in addition to other creative largess items. For the inspiration of our talented artisans, the baronial colors are red and white, and our mascot is a Bull. Colors and mascot are not required. A Stierbachian theme is encouraged (but also not required).


Youth A&S: Things That Make You Go “Moo”

 The Youth of the Barony and beyond are invited to submit A&S entries for competition and display. The theme is Stierbach’s mascot, the Bull. Entrants are invited to take creative liberty with the bovine theme, and submit anything that has to do with cows. For inspiration, some examples might include items made with leather, cow horn (such as drinking horns, and bone or horn buttons). Artistic entries may include pictures of cows, embroidery and needle point featuring cows, or a piece of garb embellished with a cow. More examples might be something painted with a cow or something edible made from milk. Be creative! Entries in this category may be for competition or for display. Please indicate at drop off if you are entering the competition or the display.

 Note to parents and potential entrants: This competition aims to serve as a gentle introduction to A&S competitions for youth entrants so that they may receive positive feedback and enjoy an encouraging and supportive experience. Prizes will be generously awarded to all entries in a wide variety of categories uniquely suited to a fun and light-hearted youth competition. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns (Lady Esa, mka. Rachel Scott at the email address below)
