Lady Kolfinna Vallagyoja receiving her Award of Arms from TRM Owain & Wrenn, Dec 6, 2008.
(See discussion tab)

An Award of Arms is the lowest level of armigerous rank awarded by the Crown, generally to those who have become recognized integrated participants in the Society. The Crown of An Tir has granted Principality Coronets the privilege of bestowing AA's to subjects of Their Principalities in the name of the Crown.

Despite the name, one does not need a Award of Arms to register a device - it simply becomes your arms after you receive the award. You don't need a registered device to receive an AoA, but your scroll won't have your device should you be awarded arms. Arms may also be awarded to groups and households. Court Baronies, by corpora, come with an Award of Arms if the recipient does not already have arms. Note that in An Tir Court Baronies are ranked above AoAs.

The Crown charges the populace to bring those deserving of awards to their attention, by recommending them for awards. Here is an article on how and when to write an award recommendation, and this is the on-line recommendation form.

Sometimes referred to as "AA" or "AoA" (ay-oh-ay)

Title: Entitles the recipient to style him or herself "Lord" (note capital) or "Lady." They are properly addressed as "my Lord" or "my Lady." See also: Forms of Address
