Upcoming fabric design contests: Alphabet, Poetry, B&W, Ice Cream, Folk Tales
In case you missed it, we've announced a few new themes for upcoming Fabric Of the Week contests, including Alphabet, Poetry, Black & White, Ice Cream, and Folk Tales. The deadlines appear below, and a full set of rules and instructions for entry appears on our upcoming contests page.
Alphabet: Submit a fabric design that uses the alphabet as a design motif. The use of fonts created by others is acceptable as long as the license for the font or fonts you use includes permission to create derived works for commercial use. Please submit original work. Do not submit centered images unless the design is intended to be ordered as a pattern rather than as fabric. Entry deadline is Tuesday, April 12, 2011.
Poetry. This is a contest to create a fabric design inspired by the imagery in a particular poem that you love.
