This is a collection of suggested amendments to the Ordinances and Jurying criteria, submitted by Company members. Comments are invited, below.
Submission 3 – Master Hugh de Calais and the Provost Secretary
Adopt the Lochac A&S competition judging criteria and submission formats in place of the jurying criteria suggested by the Company of Broiderers. The advantage is that the Lochac A&S judging guidelines are better described. It also allows members to additionally submit their company entries to Lochac A&S competitions without much change needed (if any).
The disadvantage is that the scoring criteria needs to be analysed to determine what would represent Apprentice/Journeyman/Master levels. Indeed would we average the score across the criteria, weight some criteria better than others, or require a consensus of results across the criteria (i.e. Master in 4 criteria and Journeyman in one would only allow a ranking of Journeyman).
