Changes to Arts and Sciences in Ealdormere

Greetings unto the Populace of Ealdormere from your Kingdom Minister of Arts & Science, Baroness Lucia;

I am super pleased with the number of A&S competitions that are happening around the Kingdom. I am super excited about the upcoming A&S displays that are part of the Royal whims of Their Royal Majesties.

I am now announcing policy changes for Kingdom A&S after the very productive Kingdom A&S Moot. The biggest change is that I will be dropping the existing 5 categories. The most exciting change is the introduction of sponsored prizes. 

Please read over the rules below. They will also be put up on the A&S page, and incorporated into the A&S Policy document. I hope these rules reflect the wishes of the A&S community. Feedback and questions are welcome at ealdormere.kmoas@gmail.com or on the e-list.

Call for Applicants - Tournaments Illuminated Art Director

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is seeking candidates for the position of Tournaments Illuminated Art Director. The current officer steps down in July, 2016, and in order to ensure a smooth transition, applications for the positions are now being accepted.

Tournaments Illuminated (TI) is the Society’s quarterly magazine that furthers research, education and ‘living history’ recreation in the field of pre-seventeenth century Western culture, with additional features unique to the SCA: humor, kingdom news, medieval travel destinations, museums of interest, and more.

Duties and responsibilities of the art director include:
  • layout of the magazine while adhering to our graphic standards on schedule;
  • maintaining contact with illustration and photography contributors
  • supplying TI-related supplementary materials for the SCA’s websites
The position requires a modest weekly time commitment, except prior to publication deadline when 30+ hours per week may be required. Qualifications for the Art Director position include expertise with magazine production, the ability to meet deadlines, and experience working with printers. Applicants need to have access to and experience with a computer running InDesign and the ability to export files to press-quality pdf format (if working on a PC – our printing vendor uses Macintosh, and our existing files are all Macintosh InDesign). Professional experience in a graphics environment and prior experience in an SCA chronicler position are desirable, but not required.   E-mail access is absolutely vital to the position, and while high-speed internet access is not required, it has proven to be very useful. Reasonable expenses are covered by the Corporation and may include: paper, printer cartridges, stamps, mailing expenses, and a post office box. You will be asked to submit an expense report, with receipts attached to receive reimbursement. The Art Director receives a small stipend from the SCA once an issue is complete.

Hard copies of résumés (both professional and SCA related, including offices held and honors) must be sent to the attention of ‘The Board of Directors’, SCA, Inc., P.O. Box 360789, Milpitas, CA 95036-0789. Electronic courtesy copies should also be sent to resumes@sca.org and pubmanager@sca.org. Résumés must be received by April 1, 2016.

Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
SCA Inc.
Box 360789
Milpitas,  CA 95036

You may also email comments@lists.sca.org.
