A word about the selection of the winners. I designed this challenge with the aim of encouraging the creation of as many sixteenth-century style clothing and accessories items as possible, utilising as much handwork as possible, over a four month period. The aim being not just a high output of costume and accessories, but also highly historically accurate items too.

The points system therefore reflects this aim by allocating points for layers completed (on a per-outfit basis) as well as items of handwork. Points were also allocated to the best attempt at historically accurate design and historically accurate construction. The Overall Winner was the person whose total points for all these factors was the highest. The Best Novice - Sewing, and Best Novice - Italian Ren awards were given to those with the highest scores who identified themselves (according to set criteria) as novices to either sewing or Italian Ren costume. The Best Handwork, Best Historically Accurate Design and Best Historically Accurate Construction awards were not based on points, but on merit. Therefore, there are no second or third place winners.
