"Tartanscot Holiday Contest . . . "


Well, the holiday season is finally here!  So let's have some fun during the month of December.  For those of you who have been long-time readers, you'll know how MUCH I love decorating for the holidays.  The smell of fresh cedar.  The feel of pine sap on my fingers.  Maybe some holiday music on the stereo.

Since you've all seen what my place looks like this holiday season - I really want to see what y'all have been up to . . . So, I'm pleased to announce the first annual "Tartanscot Holiday Decorating Contest!"

There are three categories that you can enter :

1)  Christmas Tree ( lights.  ornaments.  creativity. )

2)  Dining Room ( it's one of the best times of the year to entertain.  Let's see that dining table! )

3)  Fireplace Mantel.  ( let your imagination sparkle! )

How to do it:

1)  Decorate your home. 

2)  Take digital photos.

3)  Email your images (along with your name and address) to "Tartanscotcontest@gmail.com" 

But, don't think it will just be me here - throwing darts at the wall to see who's going to win.   Tune in on Wednesday to meet our panel of Celebrity Judges - a collection of designers and bloggers from around the world.  

And it's not just for bragging rights - images of the winning entries will be posted here on Tartanscot during Christmas week - and I'll also be announcing our special prizes for the contest later in the week.  

Now, for the small print:

Contest begins on Monday November 29, 2010 and ends at 11:59
p.m., E.T. on Thursday December 16, 2010. Winners 
will be announced on December 21, 2010.

The contest is open to both interior designers and 
design enthusiasts who want an opportunity to showcase
their work in the 'Tartanscot Holiday Decorating Contest'.
Submit clear photographs (up to a maximum of three photos)
of each room designed by you to (tartanscotcontest@gmail.com). It
can be either your own personal home or a home designed by you for a
client, just as long as it is your OWN work.
Photograph from every angle, including close-ups and special details. 
Images should be no larger than 1MB and in jpg format. 
Provide your full name and address.

Cheers and best of luck,

Great idea - can't wait to see the entries!

LOL - actually, there WAS a point when I was planning to go to law school. But, I was VERY young. And possibly watching "The Paper Chase."

Great idea. Waiting for ideas. I greet the Polish winter.

What a fun idea ! I will enjoy looking at the photos.
In Buenos Aires, there are no Christmas trees ( real ones anyway) and wreaths and very little decorating.
I have to make do with what I brought with us from the US...
How exciting! I will definitely submit pics, it will be hard to limit it to 3 pictures of each room though:) I have my entire home done, now just have to clean some more and will start submitting pics!!!! Thanks, this is a great idea!!!! XO, Pinky
