Cultural Entries Eligibility

Items must not have been entered in a previous EH Cultural Event. Joint entries and group entries will be accepted. Group entries from more than 3 people will not count towards an individual’s overall score. Regular Registration is from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm on the day of the event. Judging will begin at 1:00 pm. Please have ALL entries registered by 12:30 pm. Special situations will be reviewed.


Scoring System

Ideally, the competitors will have diverse talents and score well. The object of this scoring system is to keep people from winning the cultural tournament by flooding one category or entering a lot of poor quality entries in order to increase their score. Cultural winner will be the person with the highest combined score from entries that meet the following requirements. Only the entrant’s two best entries in any given category will count towards their overall score. And entries that achieve an average score lower than 2.5 will not count towards the entrant’s overall score. Entries that place first in a category will receive 0.5 bonus points added to their score.

Due to the delicate nature of cooking entries, this category will be judged first.

Entries will be judged on taste, texture, appetizing presentation and difficulty. There will be 5 judges and entrants will need to provide enough of each entry for all of them to taste. Be prepared to have a way to maintain your own dish until it can be judged (hot/cold). Bring plates, cups and utensils if they will be needed to judge your entry.



Entries will be judged, where applicable, on form, content, grammar, spelling and usefulness to the body of Amtgard knowledge. With the exception of publications, please try to limit these entries to 5 pages or less. Publications entries only require one copy. All entries require 5 copies total, except Publications.



Entries will be judged on difficulty and entertainment value.



Entries will be judged on artistic presentation and the difficulty of the medium.



Entries will be judged on durability, attractiveness, design and difficulty.



Entries are judged on construction, presentation, difficulty and application to proposed function.



Anything made for the benefit of the club intended to be donated to the club. These are scored on their construction and design as well as their contribution to Amtgard.
