The other two juried shows scheduled for the 2024 year will remain as we have done them in the past. In addition, you might notice that in 2024 we have removed the restriction about posting your work prior to the shows. That is no longer part of the requirements and we encourage our members to share their work in our Facebook Groups.
What is going to be different for The Winter Blues Event?
1. We are going to be playing a game on Instagram in regard to this Juried Show Event. We are asking Non-Members and IADR Members to Play the Game by participating in this event with a Like, Save, Comment, and Repost of our posts about the Event. The Winners of the Game will receive a Certificate of Support, be featured within The Winter Blues article in the Spring edition of the IADR magazine, and receive a free issue of that same edition of the magazine.
2. To IADR Members we will be offering a Sponsorship opportunity to this Unique Show. What is that? A sponsor will be any IADR member that would like to offer a tutorial, how-to, or one small handmade gift item to be a bonus gift to the winning players of this game.
Why be a sponsor? For anyone that agrees to be a sponsor, their picture and a short post will be placed on the IADR Instagram account as part of this game. Anyone that is following this event on Instagram will be asked to Subscribe to the Sponsor's account, Share the post, and Add it to their Story timeline if they wish to be considered for the opportunity of winning a bonus gift. This is a Win/Win opportunity for any sponsor and a way to grow your reach on Instagram.
Winners of these bonus gifts are determined by their participation and support of the Juried Show. Sponsors and Players both have the same opportunity to win a bonus gift.
The Winter Blues Juried Show PRIZES will be different for this first IADR event of 2024. This is a juried show so there will be five possible winners - as there are five Categories consisting of Novice, Intermediate, Advance, Professional, & Master. The main prize for this event will be a One Year Membership in the IADR for each category. If any of the categories do not have the required two people competing, then the honorary prize for the category will be the judges review, a honorary certificate, and a free IADR Magazine issue in which all the entries will be featured.
The Game will begin December 15th, 2023, and run to the end of the Event which will be March 1st, 2024. To learn more about The Winter Blue Event then click the link. This is a fun opportunity in with we hope to grow the IADR membership as well as promote our sponsors so they can grow.
