Something different in the Year End Event is that even though an artist may submit to be consideration in all three awards, the artist will only be eligible to win one (1) award per artist.
REMEMBER - you need to submit only one photo of each of your dolls being judged for a total of three pictures as you are submitting only three pieces of work to be considered for the year. These three images can be submitted for each category which are - Rising Star - Best Doll of the Year - and - Best Artist of the Year. A complete explanation of each category can be above the registration form in the members only section of the IADR website. If you have any questions contact me at IADRegistry@outlook.com.
What are the rules to the game?
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 Juried Show Event in Instagram.
So, when our posts about the upcoming Juried Show Event show up in your timeline:
The Prizes: There are several ways to win at the Game. First of all, the Best Supporter of the game will win/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.
Then there are the Bonus Gifts: For each gift from a Sponsor there will be one winner per gift. As we are still accumulating sponsors I am not able to say how many gifts there will be available at this time. Though I will share that Deb Wood is a sponsor. More information about her Bonus Gift will be posted later... so stay tuned for finding out what it could be *smiling*.
The game will run from December 15th to March 1st, 2024. But the Deadline to be considered a PLAYER is January 19th, 2024. So anyone that starts playing the game between December 15th to January 19th will be considered a PLAYER and will be eligible to win the prizes and bonus gifts. After January 19th, then it will be the accumulation of their activity that will determine who will be a winner.
If you have any questions email me at IADRegistry@outlook.com or Instant Messenger on Facebook.
YEAR END EVENT ---
There are Only two weeks left to go to get your entries in!!!
A sponsor will be any IADR member that would like to offer a bonus gift (prize) to be added to the Game. A bonus gift can be a tutorial, how-to, or one small handmade gift item that will be mailed to a winner of the Game.
I am suggesting digital gift items as a preference - as handmade gifts that require shipping will be with the responsibility of the sponsor to pay for the shipping. We will attempt to keep handmade gifts to be shipped to a lucky winner within the same area or country as the sponsor to minimize shipping costs.
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 by Following, Like the post, and Share it to their Story timeline if the player wishes 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.
Also Sponsors will be listed in the IADR Winter edition (published January, 2024) Magazine in regard to our Winter Blues Event.
As far as some of the bonus gift items:
If you need help in coming up with an idea and would like to participate, then just email me at IADRegistry@outlook.com or Instant Messenger.
Winners of these bonus gifts are determined by their participation and support of the Juried Show game posts. Sponsors and Players both have the same opportunity to win a bonus gift.
Another important date --Dec 31st - Year End Event Deadline: The submission form is now available for IADR members to submit your Year End information at any time. Don't let the holiday's hustle and bustle make you miss the deadline. This Event is for anyone that participated in ONE(1) prior Juried Show OR the People Choice Event. Keeping in mind that October 2022 is considered part of the year 2023 contest since we didn't do a Year End Event last year.
