Estrella War Arts & Sciences Competition

The Estrella War Arts & Sciences Competition is an inter-kingdom competition held to allow artisans compete and receive feedback about their work from an inter-kingdom judging team. Competitors are not declaring for a side but enter the competition for the individual glory. The winner of each category will be declared the Estrella War Arts & Sciences Champion for their area. The competition is:

  1. Coordinated by Atenveldt’s Minister of Arts & Sciences
  2. Open to any entrants who wish to compete
  3. Limited to three categories of Arts and Sciences
  4. Governed by rules that are based off of previously accepted and negotiated rules from prior Estrella Wars.
  5. For complete details on the polling process used to determine the categories please visit the Estrella page of the Kingdom of Atenveldt Ministry of Arts & Sciences website.
