SRAJD Jewelery Design Challenges for 2014

I’d like to announce our next series of challenges which will be both monthly (sort of) and weekly.

From now until the end of the year, I’m going to announce a monthly theme divided into weekly themes. 

The day after the weekly theme deadlines, the entries will be shared on the SRAJD blog (with links to the creators’ websites... awesome backlink opportunities for search engine optimization).   

At the end of the month, the SRAJD admin team will select one winner from all that month’s entries and that person will receive a full blog post about their online shop. 

The monthly winners will not be repeated, so everyone who participates often has a great chance of winning one of the monthly challenge blog spots.

At the end of the year, we will randomly draw a name from the 10 monthly winners and that person will receive a prize package containing beading/jewelry making supplies as well as a one year large ad on the SRAJD website.

Your submitted photos will be reduced to 800 pixels on their widest side so take that into consideration when shooting and cropping your photos.  There is also an option if you think your photo may need a bit of photo-editing help.

We prefer photos without text on them.
