Contest Committee

We'll be ringing in the new year in a month's time and with the new year comes a whole new batch of PatternReview contests. The Contest Committee hopes that you've all had a chance to look at the contest list for next year and plan to participate in some (or all) of them.

To get a head start on things and to make sure things run smoothly in the year to come, we're looking for for contest managers for the first 2 months of contests.

Who can be a contest manager? YOU can! It doesn't matter if you're a beginning seamstress or someone who can sew circles around Claire Schaeffer. All that's required is a love of sewing and a wish to contribute to this great community.

We'd love to see more people step forward and volunteer in one way or another. We are grateful to ladies like Imaan and JanNW and others who step forward time and time again, but PR has a HUGE membership and we would love to have the rest of you participate in this way.

Why volunteer as a contest manager? Managing contests can be a lot of fun and is a great way to get involved and build relationships with others on the site. Speaking from personal experience, I learned more, made more friends and gained more inspiration as a contest manager than I have when participating in PR in any other fashion. Even though contest managers can't win the prize, they can gain a lot from the experience.

Is managing a contest difficult? Your primary role as a contest manager is to act as a mentor to participants. You'll answer questions about the rules and occasionally help someone sort out their entry in the system. The Contest Committee will also help support you in any way it can.

More info about the job is available here

****

If you're interested in managing a contest in 2012, please post here and we'll PM you with the rules prior to the start of the contest. Thanks in advance for volunteering - contests are an important - and fun - part of PR, and they couldn't happen without YOU!

I know a lot of people have shown interest in participating in the fabric stash contest so it may be harder to find a manger for that one. I'd love to manage it, and sew along My stash is mostly too new to count, but I still want to sew it up!

I know you don't want lots of repeat managers, so if someone else steps up, I understand. At the same time, I only expect to manage one contest per year, and January would be a great month for me to do it!

Any takers on the jeans and red dress contests? I have a feeling those two contests are going to be ah-may-zing!

Woo hoo! Thanks Tree Frog! I think you'll have fun with this one.

So now, for the time being, we only need one more contest manager. Any takers on the Red Dress contest? Surely that will be an exciting contest to take on...beautiful, dramatic red dresses?
