Throwback Criteria

Calligraphy Criteria
 -Novice
While it's not Thursday yet I thought you'd like to see a throwback of sorts from August of 1996. 

Years ago the Kingdom of Calontir had Arts and Sciences's Criteria that were different than those we use today. The other day I was reorganizing some papers and my copies for both calligraphy and illumination resurfaced. 

I'd been looking for them for some time. Of course, they were not in the file I expected held them. But they've resurfaced now. 

I've scanned them and you can see them yourself.

Why do I want you to be able to see them? I believe the "old" criteria practically walk you through the creative process. Their approach is different than the Kingdom of Calontir's Arts & Sciences Criteria used today for calligraphy and illumination

I can't say that the current criteria are better or that the former ones are. For criteria, the important thing is that everyone is judged by the same standard. And that people know what they are before they enter any competition. Perhaps even before they create their item. That is why I try to be very specific when I run an A&S competition. I even post how judges will be found and a tie decided if one occurs.

I know these images are too small for you to read. Please click on them and they will enlarge to a readable size. Comparing these to the ones used today will help you understand different ways judging may be approached.
