A&S Photographer at Pennsic

A message from the Deputy Minister of Arts & Science:

Hello there, Eastern artists!
Want to get better images of your work for your documentation or your blog? If you’re headed to Pennsic next month, John Peynter will be offering to photograph A&S projects. He has provided this service before, and the images are amazing, some of which can be found on his website: https://photo.johnj.mikucki.net/Events/Pennsic-2017/Arts-and-Sciences
He has 3 sessions listed through Pennsic University:
    • Saturday 8/3 (noon-3pm in A&S 15)
    • Sunday 8/4 (9am-noon in the Great Hall)
  • Thursday 8/8 (9am-noon in the Great Hall)
I’ve also gotten some additional information from the photographer. Letting him know you’re interested is key; this will allow him to have the best tools and props on hand to photograph your art. You can do this by filling out a quick Google form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdj8XJKA9UqFsdUphtMzFCI149s2nxdquaqCNaf9vMCBosoeg/viewform
The photographer grants the artisans he works with a perpetual, nonexclusive, noncommercial right to use his images of their work. However, if you wish to derive profit from the images in any way (advertising pieces or services for sale/hire, etc), you would need to discuss commercial licensing rates with him. But for education, documentation, admiration, showing Grandma? He says “Enjoy with my compliments, and photo credits are welcomed. 🙂

A&S Shadow Judging

From the Kingdom A&S Minister:

A few people have asked about future opportunities to shadow judge at an A&S competition. Thanks to the competition coordinator for the “Keepers of the Central Flame” (Sept. 21) we have one!
Since “Keepers of the Central Flame” will be using the rubric typically used for EK Crown’s A&S Champions, Mistress Zipporah bas Yosef ( Allison Sarnoff ) has given permission for the MOAS office to organize shadow judging at the event, so interested individuals can learn more about how the rubric works and about how to judge effectively.
If you are interested in being a shadow judge for this event, please e-mail moas@eastkingdom.org, and we will coordinate with with Mistress Zipporah to arrange things.
Please note that anyone at any level of expertise may shadow judge. Shadow judging is recommended for those who wish to judge Crown’s A&S in the future, and is also helpful for those who plan to enter, or for those who just want to up their A&S game.
Thank you all
