I hope there was enough time for the dust to settle with Plush You! L.A. so that I can now announce that applications are up for Plush You! here in Seattle. As always, the show in Seattle is in October (opening reception is Oct. 8th) Please read this thoroughly if you plan on applying as there are a few new rules.
#1: I am going to start having a very small application fee ($5). I hope that this small fee is not a big deal for anyone and I have many reasons for doing it.
#2: Please send the following pieces of information to plushyou2010seattle(at)gmail(dot)com
a) Your name
b) THREE PHOTOS ONLY that represent the kind of work you do. I know you get excited about your work and want to show all your best but there is one of me and hundreds of you. I will not process applications if these photos are links. Just send jpeg images as an attachment. It's really hard for me to make decisions when I have to go back and forth between links and such. So please send images as attachments ONLY.
c) Where you live
d) Website or blog link
e) Your $5 via paypal to kristen(at)schmancytoys(dot)com
#3: Once all information has been received you will get a confirmation email letting you know that your application has been processed.
#4: Deadline for applications is May 10th. I will make my decisions by May 18th and send out all acceptance letters or sadly rejection letters.
How does she decide????
This is the hardest decision to make. Some of the judges for the Schmancy Olympic Challenge got a glimmer of how hard it is. Things that I consider include any and all of the following: the quality of work, i am always trying to showcase a variety of work that represents different mediums in which plush is made, where you live (esp. for L.A.), types of work to have a nice balance (cute, creepy, cuddly).
I hope that you understand my decisions. Thank you for your constant support. xo
