The following sponsored categories have been announced

Please note that sponsors may withdraw without penalty

Prizes can be sponsored by individuals or by groups. The individual or group sponsoring must provide a gift for the winner of their sponsored prize. Prize categories must be general in category rather than specific. ie ‘hats’ instead of ‘german hats’ or ‘Best Persona Development’ not ‘Best Barbarian Pirate’.

All entries, including display, can be considered for the sponsored prizes.

Entrants in Kingdom A&S can be awarded the prize for multiple categories. Prizes will be awarded by sponsors throughout the day as decisions are made.
