A Laurels Prize Tourney is an event where members of the Order of the Laurel issue challenges in their area(s) of expertise, to be met by any interested party. (Really! You do not need any award or rank to answer a challenge – just a desire to engage with the question and share your results.)
At the event, you will meet with the Laurel who issued the challenge, and have the opportunity to talk in-depth with them about your work. You will also have the opportunity to display your work to all interested attendees; those who choose to answer a performance-based challenge will have the opportunity to perform your answer for not only the Laurel who issued the challenge, but also interested attendees from the event in general.
Each Laurel defines the terms of their challenge; please read them carefully, and if you have questions, please ask! We will be happy to get you answers. Each challenger will also decide how they wish to reward those who meet their challenge; some may choose a single winner, and some may reward every entrant who answers. There is no overall competition – there is no “Tourney Winner” for the day.
