This then became my inspiration for our own IADR Art Doll magazine. We are all doing what we love (hopefully), so why not show it off? Plus, as an IADR member, we should have perks like this one. So any member that wants to show off what their latest love is has a free page in the IADR Art Doll magazine. This is over and beyond the Facebook Collage or interviews. This is YOUR page!
That is why I gave you a rough layout above of what your page could consist of as it should have a minimum of three photos and a short introduction of three lines. You can also post your links of where you are selling it if you wish. Send me your Do What You Love submissions to the IADRegistry@outlook.com email address. Subject line: Do What You Love - so I know what the pictures are for. Don't miss out on this free advertising and cross-marketing opportunity for your creations by being shy *smiling*. Help us inspire others by showing off your creations!
Also the Winter Blues Instagram game is winding down with the deadline for the Winter Blues Event being March 1st. Keep in mind when you submit your entry, make sure you send an email to the IADR so I can confirm the receipt of your submission. Only when you get a return email from me confirming that I have received it - will you know you are IN! Beat the Winter Blues by joining in this artistic opportunity to shine.
In our endeavor to make our juried show easier to enter, Step-by-Step Videos have been created. They are located on the Winter Blues Submission form. The English version is on the first page. The Italian and Russian versions are located on their respected pages of translation.
These will hopefully be especially helpful to non-members or members new to the IADR that haven't entered a juried show before. Hopefully everything you want to know should be there and even a few things you didn't. *Smiling*.
Again a BIG THANK YOU goes out to Adelaide Santini and Alena Cvetkovski who proof-checked and corrected my language when one can't just rely on Google Translate.
Also when submitting for a show, please take that final step of emailing me so that I can confirm your registration and that we have received your submission. There are always glitches waiting to happen out there in cyberspace, so don't assume I have received your submission when you click on it. Take that extra step to tell me so I can confirm for you that I have received your submission. Your entry is not confirmed until you send your email to IADRegistry@outlook.com and have received a return email confirmation.
Again Deadline for the Winter Blues Event is March 1st, 2024. I can't wait to see what fantastic entries will be submitted!
Thank you to Alena Cvetkovski for the suggestion of this unique juried show. The Instagram game has been a good learning curve and it has been great in generating new interest in our shows. Also a big thank you to our Sponsors who have donated great gifts for prizes and hopefully increased new followers for you too.
This is the only show we will be hosting that will be offering free yearly memberships as awards. This gives new non-members a chance to try to win a membership with the IADR with only the investment of a $10.00 USD entry fee. To the IADR members it is a way to win a free year. Sounds like a win/win situation and this prize is being awarded in each category!
Juried shows are not only a way to win prizes, but they also help give us a perspective in how others see our art. The critiques are valuable for us that are looking for ways to improve our artwork. Juried shows are also a way to help the IADR grow in membership as well.
When you post about a juried show in your social media platforms it gives us a shout-out while creating a possibility that someone else hasn't heard of this great opportunity yet. Also by joining in the shows whether you are a Novice to a Master - helps create this opportunity so the shows may continue. So when asking what you can do to help the IADR continue, join in the shows! That also includes Past Winners - that is why the Master category was created so we can have something to work for and be inspired by. Also send me your ideas too as I am totally open to anything that helps promote the IADR and dollmaking. After all - Dollmaking is our Passion!
