How to Enter

1. Registration
All you need to do to enter is to register as a participant: send me an e-mail (link below) with your legal name, location and a photo to put on the participants page, by no later than 14 September 2012.

2. Challenge Guidelines
a. The item/s you enter must be started - from scratch - no earlier than September 15 2012 (CST).
b. Your item/s need to be completed by 15 October 2012 (CST).
c. I will accept photos of your item/s in process IF you wish to take photos and send them to me. I will upload this to the challenge web page. However, process photos - that is photos of the unfinished item/s are NOT required.
4. However, at least one photo of each completed item MUST be sent to me within 24 hours of the challenge deadline, so please ensure you have your camera, batteries, cables etc. ready to use when you need them. Please ensure that this photo is as large and detailed as possible so that I can more accurately evaluate the work.
5.  A short write-up documenting your item/s period-accuracy and all hand-work done needs to accompany the photo/s. Please make sure that the e-mail address you use to email me is one that you use and check regularly so that I can contact you if needed.
If I've forgotten to address anything, or if you have any questions please ask before the challenge begins.

3. Prize
Only one winning item will be chosen, based on the following factors: period-accuracy (most important) hand-work (second in importance), and beauty (very subjective of course). The prize will be either a Gift Certificate from the online retailer of the winner's choice, to the value of $US25, or $AUS25, or £20, or €20, OR a donation of the same value to the breast cancer research/cancer research of their choice, to be provided by yours truly. Good luck, and have fun! :)
