I would suggest you enter Con-G's masq as a journeyman, since they have a (relatively) similarly sized masquerade. As for Anime North, since it's a much larger and tougher competition, you could still enter as a novice (though if you also won something at Con-G as a journeyman, I'd say do AN as a journeyman). I think winning 2 awards at smaller masqs is pushing it.
, you can always ask the masquerade staff when you register or during workmanship judging what they suggest for you, based on your past experience and what you plan to enter.
