If you’ve been a fan of ours on Facebook, Pinterest, or Tumblr, you may have noticed the beautiful photos of Artyarns yarn colors juxtaposed against photos of nature or art that contain similar color themes. These have been very popular and are quite fun to put together! Our next contest centers on beautiful photos of Artyarns.
In honor of our 10th Anniversary, our second photo contest will be to submit your own yarn inspiration photos to us. It doesn’t have to be a collage, but it does have to be your own yarn photo, and it has to be a beautiful shot. You must, of course, use Artyarns yarns. If you would like to submit a collage like the middle photo above (not required), it’s best to use a smartphone app. Here is a free one for iphones, and this is one for the Android platform. You can also create a collage on your home computer using a photo editing program like Photoshop. The key is to put your best photography skills to work. Try a bunch of different angles, under different types of light, to get the best shot you feel you are capable of.
How to enter:
Your entry must contain a photo of Artyarns yarn(s) that YOU TOOK (whether from your stash, your friend’s stash, or the local yarn shop’s stock). Email the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and a note mentioning the color and fiber in your photo.
We will accept up to 3 entries per person.
This contest will end March 20th. On that date, we will put all of the photos into an album on Facebook and open it to voting. VOTES COUNT! We will choose the winner based on the number of likes/shares it gets.
We will have a total of 3 winners. The grand-prize winner of the contest will win the 2 gorgeous skeins of Beaded Pearl & Sequins shown above (a $148 value)! Two runners-up will each win a copy of our 2013 Knit-Along Collection booklet (a $19.95 value)!
