HAF Challenge #4: Iron Chef!!
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:12:15 PM »
Hey, Handmade Artists' Forum members! It's time for our 4th HAF Challenge!! The theme this time is "Iron Chef" and is all about food!

Rules of the Challenge:
1.) Your entry must be directly food-themed. For example: You can carve a stamp out of a potato and enter that into the contest. However, you can't enter a card that was merely stamped with the potato stamp (unless the card itself is also food-themed).
2.) Your entry can be created from food (e.g., a macaroni necklace), can be a resemblance of food (e.g., a "cake" made from diapers), or can very obviously contain food-related materials (e.g., a journal made from recycled cereal boxes; a sorting game made from cupcake containers).
3.) To enter the contest, you must take a picture of your completed entry and post it, along with a brief explanation of the entry, on this thread. Everyone who sees the picture should be able to tell what is food-related in your entry (an initial explanation of the entry may be necessary, but we shouldn't have to have a hard time deciphering what is food-related in your entry).
4.) Any entries that do not follow these rules WILL be disqualified!!
5.) Start NOW and make sure your entries are posted by Friday, July 8, 2011!!!!

Once all entries have been submitted, the lovely administrators will create a blog post where you and your friends and family can vote for your favorite entry!

Prizes:
As always, we'd greatly appreciate any prize donations (free exposure for you) to give to the winning commenter! Either post your donation in this thread or send me a message.
The WINNER of the Iron Chef Challenge will receive $25 cash AND a lifetime subscription to the Handmade Artists' Forum Shop!!!!
One voting begins, anyone who VOTES and then LEAVES A COMMENT on the blog will be entered to win $25 to spend at the Handmade Artists' Shop!!
These prizes are all courtesy of our marvelous administrators!!!!

So now HAFers, with an open heart and an empty stomach, I say unto you in the words of the Chairman from Iron Chef America: "Allez cuisine!!"

I make food jewelry out of polymer clay.  Can I submit something I made for my shop or does it have to be a new creation?  How many items may I submit?

I would love to play! And I'll donate a mini 200 page fabric covered hand bound book. I'll post a photo as soon as I get it done (probably tomorrow evening 6/13)

We'd like you to create something new. Obviously, we have no way of verifying if what you made was already made or if it was created for this contest, so we'll have to work by the honor system here. ;)

You may submit only one creation, so pick your best! :D

Thanks for the donation, Andrea! You'll send it to the winning commenter after the contest has ended.
