I have an idea for a crafty contest and wanted to get your feedback!
Have you seen the show Iron Chef America? It is where top chefs go head to head making their best dishes for a panel of judges. The catch is they have to use a Secret Ingredient.
So, I want to do a spin off of that... The Iron Crafter. I would pick a "secret ingredient" (that wouldn't be so secret because I would tell you) and you would have to make a craft with it. You can use anything else that you want but you HAVE to use the secret ingredient some how.
There are 2 ways I could run the contest...
1.) Have a set number of crafters compete. you would email me if your interested and I would select 5-10 crafters to compete. I would show case each of the crafter projects and I would have a voting poll to declare the winner. I am hoping to do several rounds so that everyone who is interested would get a chance.
2.) Have it be open to everyone. I would tell you the Secret Ingredient is and I would set up a linky party for people to link up their Iron Crafter submission. Jeannine and I would pick our top 5 - 10 favorites and then have a voting poll to declare the winner. Our picks would be based on Originality, presentation and use of the secret ingredient.
Let me know what you think. If you have any other ideas about the Iron Crafter contest feel free to share those too!
I am also looking for some sponsors to supply some of the prizes. If you are interesting in becoming an Iron Crafter sponsor email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
