Sweet Table Contest 2011- Worldwide!

I am excited to share the launch of the 2011 Sweet Table Contest!

I am very honored to announce that I will be representing the United States for the 2011 International Edition. As a judge I will oversee the submission process for the US.
This contest launched last year in Europe when Lare, the founder, had the brilliant idea of creating some buzz around the current trend in dessert/sweet tables.

It is a privilege to show the world what amazing talent we have and I am beyond excited to take part in this contest with you!
This contest is open to everyone who designs sweet tables/dessert tables as a hobby {sorry, no professional event planners, etc}. The Process is very simple and includes the following steps:
How to Enter

1. Submit ONE high res color photo of your dessert table
If you live in the USA and you are not in the party design business, simply send ONE high res photo of your dessert table to 
kara@karaspartyideas.com by Sunday, December 11th. See some examples herePlease indicate your email subject as: STC Submission.
2. Include your contact info in the email:
  • Your Name
  • Your Email Address
  • City
  • Event Theme
  • Quick overview of the concept behind the design

3. Include a link to the rest of the images from your desert table {this could be from your blog, your picasa web album, flickr, facebook page, etc. Please make sure that the album is public, not private. Or provide me with a password, etc.} Please do not email more than ONE photo of your dessert table.




What happens after you enter?
1. Processing Submissions
I will collect all of the submissions and submit them to the Sweet Table Contest Team. A very impressive International Jury Board from 16 countries around the world has been gathered to assess each of the entries based on the following criteria:
  • Creativity
  • Harmony of colors
  • Presentation
  • Accordance with the chosen theme
  • Overall Look and Feel
2. Reveal of contestants
Once contest submissions are closed, the National Contestants will be revealed on the STC Website: http://sweettablecontest.com
3. Local Round
Each National Judge will vote for their 3 favorite Sweets Tables, in all countries except their own. The National Sweet Table winner will be the table with the most points.
4. The Finals
National Judges will vote for their 3 favorite National Sweet Table winners. The President of the Jury’s vote will count double. The 2011 Sweet Table Edition winner will be the table with the most points.
What’s in it for you?
This contest is a great way of showcasing your talents and sharing your beautiful creations with the world. Your work will be displayed on my blog and the Sweet Table Contest website. It is a great way to inspire and get inspired!
