Fire Mountain Gems' Beading Contest 2009
Fire Mountain Gems and Beads is looking for entries that showcase your designer talents. There is no limit to the number of pieces you may enter. The same piece can be submitted in two different categories and, when appropriate, Fire Mountain Gems and Beads can assign a third category. However, each piece can take a winning placement in only one category.
Design entries must be comprised of at least 50 percent of products purchased from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. Each entry must include at least 50 percent of the product in the piece of the category in which it is being submitted.
First Place Gold medal winning designs in each category will go on to compete for the Grand Prizes and may be showcased in and on the following:
- 2010-2011 Jewelry Maker's Comprehensive Catalog
- On the Fire Mountain Gems' website
- Full Page ads in top industry magazines
- Supplemental catalogs
Your designs will be seen by hundreds of thousands of beading enthusiasts, along with your name if you desire. All entries are mailed and must be received by 15 April 2009, so give yourself plenty of time to send your photographs (do not send actual jewelry until you are notified). This competition is open to all Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' customers. Those entrants under age 17 must complete the Minor Entrance Packet. Visit the site to learn more.
