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!
