Cool contest!

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Hey everyone! Thought I'd give you a heads up on a cool new contest run by Epson called the Holiday Craft Contest. Yesterday marked the start of Epson's CreativeZone Holiday Craft Contest, inviting scrapbookers and paper crafters to submit original winter holiday greeting cards, scrapbook pages or holiday paper craft creations to win an Epson Stylus Photo R1800 printer or a PictureMate Dash. Creative divas Rhonna Farrer, Renee Pearson and Jessica Sprague will evaluate finalists, and winning projects will appear on the Epson CreativeZone. Submissions should follow the following criteria
  • Epson CreativeZone Patterned Page -- All projects must include creative use of at least one patterned page from the Epson CreativeZone Web site, which are available to download for free. The patterned page does not need to be from a CreativeZone winter holiday project specifically.
  • Winter Holiday Theme -- Project submissions must display a winter holiday theme, including color scheme, design and embellishments.
  • Creativity -- Consideration will be given to projects that are original, innovative and inspiring.
  • Functionality -- Project submissions should be appealing, practical and easily re-created; projects should be designed for the beginner to intermediate levels and not require complex instructions or techniques.
  • Quality -- Project submissions should be completed, neat, and display good color, balance, design, and high quality photos; computer fonts will be preferred over handwriting.
Projects must not have been previously published or submitted for other contests or publications. To enter the Epson CreativeZone Holiday Craft Contest, contestants should submit an e-mail to and include the following: at least one photograph or scan of the completed winter holiday-themed greeting card, scrapbook page or paper craft; a detailed list of supplies; step-by-step instructions explaining how the project was created (including any specific techniques used); and project dimensions. E-mail attachment files must be in JPEG or TIFF format and 300-500KB in size. Entries must also include the contestant's full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address. All submissions must be received by October 31, 2007.

Full details are available here on the Epson site. I also got some images of the prizes, which you can see below!

Good luck everyone!!!

Thanks Di, I got all excited for a minute, until I realised it was only open to people in the States, ho hum, never mind. Good luck to all who enter, it looks like a great comp.
