Starting today, Open Auditions begins for Gallery Idol, season seven! The theme for the Open Auditions round is birthday cards for teens and kids. You may upload up to three cards. Just remember that only one card will get you into the competition.
Once we pick our Top 20, these finalists will participate in weekly challenges where the online viewers will vote for their favorite entry. From the Top 20, we’ll narrow the competition to 15 finalists to 10 to five and finally to our grand prize winner. Shall I spill the beans on our amazing grand prize?
This year, as last year, we’re excited to provide our grand prize winner with a trip to a 2013 Creating Keepsakes scrapbook convention! From Seattle to Jacksonville and Chicago to San Marcos (with many more in between!), the lucky winner will get to choose from a dozen fun locations with class fees, airfare, hotel, and even spending money as part of the $1,000 prize package.
But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves! First, you’ll have to make it through the first round! We will choose twenty winners who will continue on to compete for the grand prize. The twenty winners for the first round of Gallery Idol will win paper and embellishments from the Party Day collection from Crate Paper, their
name added to the exclusive Paper Crafts designer list, and a Gallery Idol Top 20 blog badge!
All other rounds’ prizes will be announced as each round begins, but trust me, they’re worth it! You’ll want to play in this contest!
To participate, post your original designs here between now and May 27th. On Friday May 31st, we’ll announce the top 20 finalists and the next round’s theme. Before you decide to participate, please review our timeline and full rules to make sure you can meet the scheduled requirements.
Season seven is open to all players; however, our international friends will not be eligible to win the prizes unless they have a U.S. shipping address. This is a result of a steep rise in shipping costs. For more details on who can enter and who is eligible to win prizes, check out the official rules. We hope you’ll participate in season 7 of Gallery Idol!
Let the competition begin!
