Nothing in the published rules or Kingdom Law prohibits both judging and entering.  An entrant in the actual Kingdom A&S Championship - three different entries, as opposed to simply having a tri-level entry at Kingdom A&S - would obviously have to be unavailable to judge for three of the five or six possible judging slots, so judging on top of that wouldn't be the greatest idea in the world, but is not actually forbidden by any hard and fast rule.  There is a QPT rule that sponsors may not judge the entry they sponsored. 

A&S Ministers/Master Schedulers in the past may have felt they had enough judges, or felt that excluding competitors from also judging was preferable, and that would be within the discretion allowed to the office under Calontir Law, which obliges the Minister and Deputies to ensure the propriety of competitions, which may be conceived somewhat differently by different people on this topic. 

Yours in service,

Some years entrants have been allowed to judge QPT/Tri-levels, and some they have to sacrifice one.  Is that related to who's scheduler, or to who's KMoAS?
Wanting to know for future reference.

Are the deadline to register as a judge and the deadline to register as an entrant the same date?

Also, to bolster what Her Excellency has pointed out, it's very likely that some of the judges who have already registered are also entrants and will be unable to judge in every time slot for obvious reasons.

Subject: [CALONTIR] Queens Prize entries and judges
The Queen's Prize Tournament of HRM Ylva Jonsdottir approaches fast. The deadline for entries is midnight tomorrow, Aug 31. The entry form can be found at

We need judges! At this moment I have registrations from 59 entries and 36 judges. With three reviewers per entry, this would mean that every judge would have to work almost every time slot. Let's make this a little easier on everyone! Please sign up to judge, no awards or prerequisites are involved besides a basic knowledge of the subject and attendance at the event.

Thanks, --Branwen, scheduler
