Knitting Photo Contest! Lots of fun Prizes, enter by Sept. 30th!

Photo Contest!

I want to see your Girly Knits projects and awesome photos!  When I started this blog, I had a dream of sharing fun photos of girls from around the world knitting, and showing off their amazing knitted creations.  Here is a great opportunity to get creative and share!  To inspire you, I’ve put together some fun prizes!

Here’s the Deal:

You have until Sept 30th to share your Girly Knits projects on either Ravelry or Craftsy with a photo of the project.  Once you have added the project please send a link to me at girlyknits@gmail.com.  If you need help with how to add projects, feel free to contact me with questions, or check out this article here!

Here are the Rules:

1) Your photo must be of a Girly Knits pattern, all available at girlyknits.com (I have 3 free patterns that are perfectly fine to use too!)
2) You must have knitted the item yourself and either have taken the photo or be in the photo
3) You can enter up to 3 photos, including projects you have already posted
4) A work in progress photo works too!  If you wanted to use a picture of you knitting the pattern, or take a picture of it still on on the needles, even if you just started, please do!

How the winning photo will be Judged:

1) Creativity of the photo – think about interesting places you could take the photo and what you would be doing in the photo.  What unique place could you be knitting or wearing your knitwear?
2) Humor – how much it makes people smile, silliness is good!
3) How much Fun you had with the photo!  “Knitting is Fun” is the Girly Knits motto 😉
4) Quality of the photo and project.  Having a well lit photo always helps!
5) Your Vote – I will be adding your photos on my facebook fanpage where fans can vote on their favorite photo.  The one with the most fan votes one won’t necessarily win but it will get you bonus points!

I will be judging the photos along with 2 other judges.

    If I get the yarn I ordered for my cables & curves skirt I will totally upload a picture! Otherwise it would just be me and my needles…
