New Years 2010 Design Contest Details & Rules…

Dec 13


Hi everyone, here are the official rules and guidelines for our New Years 2010 Design Contest. If you have any questions, just post them as a response to this blog post.

Here we go:

No purchase necessary. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning.

Many will enter, only a few will win.

Void where prohibited.

Contest Dates: The Fall Design Contest starts 12/13/09 and Ends 1/10/10 at Midnight (Pacific).

How To Enter: This contest is powered by Youtube thru the Liberty Jane Clothing Channel. Create a video of your design, and respond to the Contest video via Youtube. You can enter as many unique and original designs as you’d like, but make sure each video entry only has 1 design. So if you want to enter 2 designs, make 2 videos entries.

By entering the contest, you are promising that the Design is your original idea, it can be inspired by another outfit, or similar, but it has to have some unique elements that you have added.

By entering the contest, you are promising that you haven’t already entered your design in one of our previous design contests. In other words, don’t recycle designs that you already entered previously (that didn’t win).

By entering the contest, you are acknowledging that Liberty Jane Clothing creates unique designs for retail purposes in an ongoing way, and our future design work isn’t restricted to exclude anything similar to what you’ve submitted. In other words, you can’t get mad at us if our future designs, (or names of outfits), are similar to an outfit you submit. We do not run these contests to get design ideas. Any similarity between our future work, and your contest entries will be coincidental.

Judging Criteria: This is a skills based contest. Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

1) Overall Presentation – including the outfit, (and the video itself).
2) Scale & proportion – Your design needs to look like it fits an 18 inch doll.
3) Color and symmetry – Design elements & color choices need to be contemporary.
4) Originality – some small element needs to be unique & interesting.


The Grand Prize Winning designer gets their outfit made for them for free. Plus the 2010 Girl Of The Year Doll.

2nd thru 10th place prizes will be announced on video December 13th, in the contest video.

Notification: Winning designers will be notified via email from Liberty Jane Clothing within 1 week of the contest end-date. After communicating with them, we will post a video showing the winning designs.

Delivery Of Prizes: Winning designers will need to provide a street address to Liberty Jane Clothing, so we can mail the prize. It does not need to be a home address, it can be a work address for example. Shipping will be paid by Liberty Jane Clothing. There is no expense if you are the winner – it’s all really free.

Updates & Ongoing Announcements: Any announcements or updates will be posted as comments on the Liberty Jane Clothing Youtube Channel.

If you have questions, simply post them as a response to this blog post or via our comments section on The Liberty Jane Clothing Youtube Channel.

    So are the entries supposed to be just drawings? Or could I make the outfit & submit a video of a doll modeling it?
