That’s right, it’s time for the second-ever contest in Mochimochi Land!
We’re looking for the cutest, funniest, most original photos of toys made from Mochimochi Land patterns. The first place winner will get a box full of cute and unusual goodies straight from Japan: craft books, supplies and kits, toys, and more! There will also be prizes for second and third place.
The finalists will be selected from photos uploaded to the Mochimochi Friends group on Flickr. All of the photos that have been uploaded in the past six months (after November 30, 2007) are already entered to win! Then everyone will get to vote for the winners right here in August.
Here are the simple guidelines:
To be eligible, your photo must contain at least one toy made from a Mochimochi Land pattern. This can either be a pattern from the Mochimochi Shop or one of the free patterns on the Mochimochi Blog. The pattern may be modified, but not beyond recognition from the original pattern.
How to enter
Simply upload your photo(s) to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group. If you don’t have a Flickr account, it is free and easy to register (though we recommend signing up as soon as possible, because it takes a little time for your account to be approved for sharing photos in a group). You can upload as many photos as you want, within reason.
The last day to enter the contest is July 31st. We’ll be announcing the finalists shortly thereafter. Then everyone can vote for their favorites right here on the blog in early August, so be sure to check back then.
