Announcing The Craft Report's "Your Art on Our Cover" Facebook contest!

Announcing The Craft Report's (TCR) "Your Art on Our Cover" Facebook contest!

 

Give your art or one-of-a-kind craft the exposure it deserves by having it featured on the cover of our nationally recognized and distributed magazine.

Contest Rules & Structure

 

Starting tomorrow, May 1, submit a photo of your best piece of art or one-of-a-kind craft to our Facebook wall for a chance to be featured on the cover of the October 2012 edition of TCR.

We will be accepting photo submissions between May 1 and May 31, 2012. Contestants are only allowed one submission each.  To be eligible for the contest, your submission to our Facebook Wall must include the following:

  • the verbiage "Entry for The Crafts Report Magazine Cover Contest"
  • artist name
  • title of subject/photo submission
  • photo credit identifying the photographer

TCR staff will be the preliminary screeners to determine which photos will be the "Finalists" and entered into the initial Facebook voting round of the contest.

 

We will run 4 voting rounds in the contest; the Preliminary Round, Quarter Final Round, Semi-Final Round, and Final Round. Voting for each of the first three rounds will remain open for 24 hours. Voting for the Final Round will remain open for 72 hours (for entire contest timeline and specific deadline and announcement dates, see Summary below).

 

For the Preliminary Round, TCR staff will select the 64 Finalists from the pool of photos received in the month of May. We will then post 4 photos together each day for 16 consecutive days starting in June, asking for our Facebook users to vote for 1 of the 4.

 

Each day's winner from the 4 posted on that given day will move on to the Quarter Final Round. After 16 days, we will be left with 16 Quarter Finalists.

 

For the Quarter Final Round, we will again post 4 photos together each day for 4 consecutive days, asking our Facebook users to vote on one of the 4.

 

Each day's winner from the 4 posted on that given day will move on to the Semi-Final Round. After 4 days, we will be left with 4 Semi-Finalists.

 

For the Semi-Final Round we will post, for two consecutive days a "head-to-head" competition, leaving us with two finalists. Those finalists will move on to the Final Round, where they will be posted together for 72 hours, with the final vote winner to win that photo on the cover of the October 2012 Crafts Report magazine.

Rabbits, Glass Sheep, Ada Lovelace and Virginia Woolf in Hindi
