The winner of each challenge and category wins a gold ribbon and a point for his or her airship, plus the kudos of being recorded in the Chronicles of the Steampunk Symposium.
Next year, for the Steampunk Empire Symposium 2013, to keep the challenge fresh and original, each competing airship must propose, facilitate, and judge a challenge to enter the Symposium Games (obviously each airship cannot participate as a competitor in their own challenge); it’s going to be a jolly good lark seeing what each airship comes up with over the next 52 weeks.
