Each contest will be judged on creativity and originality. Technical merit is great, but of less importance. Limited to 3 entries per person. You may send us up to 4 photos of each entry. At least one of them must have you in the picture, just in case someone submits someone else's work.
We'd love to have you tell us a story about who, what, where, why and how. If you have photos of the procedure- send them. Make sure it is as easy as possible to see your project in the photos. Good lighting is really important.
Three judges with lifecasting and professional art backgrounds will choose the winners of each contest.
There will be two prizes for the winners:
1st Prize will be $500 cash and 50#of Accu-Cast alginates (any combination of formulas).
2nd Prize will be $250 cash and 25# of Accu-Cast alginates (any combination of formulas).
We will pay shipping to any US address. Shipping to other addresses will be an additional charge.
Contest #1- "Expressive"
In Expressive, we're looking for beautiful, unusual and highly expressive hand and/or foot castings. They can be any combination of hands and feet- babies, seniors, families, athletes, dancers, etc. If they are painted or decorated, it should enhance the piece in some interesting way.
Entries will be due by midnight, Monday April 15th, 2018. The entry form can be found AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
Judging will be on Monday April 23rd. Winners will be notified by Wednesday April 25th.
Contest #2- "Faces of Humanity"
In Faces of Humanity we are looking for something cool, wacky, startling and unusual. The piece must contain at least one face and/or head where the mold was made with alginate. It can be plain, painted, decorated, whatever. Again, technical merit is great, but not as important as something we just can't stop looking at.
Entries will be due by midnight, Monday June 15th, 2018. The entry form can be found AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
Judging will be on Monday June 23rd. Winners will be notified by Wednesday April 25th.
Contest #3- "Innovation- The most interesting use of alginate"
Alginate is a fascinating medium. Creative minds have come up with thousands of ways to use it over the past 80 years. This Innovation category is open to just about anything- as long as its unusual and interesting. Your project does NOT need to be a lifecasting- but it certainly could be. It doesn't have to be a casting at all.
Take some pictures of your idea/project and send them to us.
Entries will be due by midnight, Monday Sept15th. The entry form can be found AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
Judging will be on Monday Sept 23rd. Winners will be notified by Wednesday Sept 25th.
