Exciting New Beading Contest!


Are you interested in winning gift certificates for beads?!

I know...seems like a silly question!! I just learned of a fun new beading contest from Mama's Minerals. Here are the details:

Mama's Minerals
We are having a beading contest! Our People's Choice Awards are an opportunity for you to showcase your best fall-themed beaded necklace, and to win some great prizes.

The public will have one month to vote online for their favorite piece from among a jury-selected pool of finalists. People’s Choice Awards will be given to 1st ($100), 2nd ($75), and 3rd ($50)place winners.

Contest is open to all ages.
Theme requirements must be met (see below).
Applications must be completely filled out and include a photograph of artwork.
Final work must be entirely original, including the design (i.e. not from a magazine).
There will be a total number of fifteen (15) entries selected for online public voting.
The selection process will be juried. The jury will be composed of professional beaders/artists.
Only one total submission per artist.

GOOD LUCK!!! (and happy beading!)

Thanks for the post, Lisa. We appreciate it!

Entries to the contest are barely trickling in so far (maybe people are still busily creating their fall piece to submit), so the competition at this point is not stiff. So everyone interested, do enter your creation soon. We're looking forward to seeing your necklaces!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we've extended the entry deadline for our beading contest to October 27. Response to the contest is still a bit slow, so the plus side for YOU is that you still don't have a lot of competiton. So if you'd like to enter, be sure to do so soon!

Here's the link to the online contest entry page:
