Planet Patchwork Electric Quilt Design Contest:
The contest deadline has passed! Entries received after 12:01 a.m. EST on December 1, 2005 are ineligible to participate.
(Save those designs for our next contest!)
Planet Patchwork, along with our sister site The Quilt Channel, and with support from The Electric Quilt Company, announces a virtual quilt design contest for users of Electric Quilt software. So many of you have bought Electric Quilt from us over the years, and told us how much you love it, that we want to provide an opportunity for you strut your stuff, and feature your work for other EQ users to see and be inspired by. And we're offering some great prizes, too!
Prizes will be awarded for Best of Show ($500.00 grand prize), Best in Category (3 $250.00 first prizes), and runners-up in each category (gift packs of merchandise from Planet Patchwork and our sponsors). There will also be an as yet undetermined number of honorable mentions.
Here's how it works: Design a quilt using Electric Quilt software (versions 4 or 5 only please) and save it as a project file. Save your final layout, the blocks you use, and your fabric or color palette, in the project, and e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You do not have to make the quilt you design; simply render it in EQ and add the colors and embellishments you desire. Please submit only one version of the quilt you design; alternate colorways will be disregarded.
You may enter your quilt design in any of three categories: traditional, contemporary, or holiday. You and only you must decide which category is the appropriate one. You may enter as many designs as you wish, but enter any single quilt in one category only. Designs entered in more than one category will be disqualified. Designs created prior to the start of the contest are acceptable.
Planet Patchwork will create a CD with the best designs for distribution to our visitors and possible sale. All entrants agree to granting us the rights to publish their designs in any format in perpetuity. Full credit will be given to the artist. All prize winners and honorable mentions will receive a copy of the CD in addition to any other winnings.
The contest entry period begins at 12:01 a.m. U.S. eastern time on Friday, October 14, 2005 and continues until 12:01 a.m. U.S. eastern time December 1, 2005. Judges will announce their decision on January 15, 2006.
Please read the detailed rules and all the legal mumbo-jumbo here. There are specific naming rules and other matters of protocol to be observed. Then come join us in the fun and show off your EQ design skills!
