Update on Rings & Things’ design contest
While the hard work is over for the contestants of our 2011 jewelry and design contest, the work for us has just begun!
Our panel of 6 judges is busy scoring this year’s entries, based on 3 criteria:
- originality (creative concept)
- craftsmanship (skill)
- aesthetic appeal
Once the numbers are in, top scorers in all 3 criteria will be contacted and asked to send in their physical entries for the final judging round. (Note: we do not give out scores, so please do not contact us asking for numbers!)
We expect to contact finalists via email between April 8 and April 12. So entrants, watch your inboxes!
For those of you anxiously waiting to see if you’re moving on to the finals, rest assured that our judges know what you’re going through!
Our judges are not only active in the arts-&-crafts community, but are required to have submitted their artwork to competitive juries in the past. They know all about the sweat and mental effort each of our contestants has contributed during the past months!
For those of you who do not make the final round, keep in mind that along the way you’ve gained experience promoting yourself and your artwork—and that’s always useful experience to have!
We love seeing everyone’s creativity and hard work each year, whether it comes from Olathe, Kansas; Maple Ridge, British Columbia; Nizhny Novgorod, Russia or anywhere else your talent might reside.
Congratulations again to our 2011 Early-Bird Drawing winner Sarah Breivis of Juju by Sarah (San Francisco, CA). Click here to see the beautiful goodie bag Sarah received for getting in her entry by February 7.
PS, our New-Entrant Drawing is yet to come! All contestants who entered Your Designs Rock for the first time in 2011 have had their names put into the hat for another chance to win a hand-picked goodie bag. Watch for our New Entrant Drawing winner, along with all contest winners, the first week of June.
Till then, happy designing and keep creating with confidence!
