Needles ready? Camera set? It’s now officially time to enter the 5th annual Mochimochi Photo Contest! Woohoo!
Once again, we’re looking for the cutest, funniest, most interesting photos of Mochimochi Land toys. All you have to do to enter is upload your photo(s) to the Mochimochi Friends group on Flickr by Monday, November 21st.
Winners will receive cute goodies from Japan and gift certificates from our generous sponsors Knit Picks and Schmancy!
To be eligible, your photo must contain at least one knitted toy made from a Mochimochi Land pattern. This can be a pattern from the Mochimochi Shop, a pattern from Knitting Mochimochi or Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, or one of the free patterns on the Mochimochi Blog. The pattern may be modified, but not beyond recognition from the original design.
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.
(All photos uploaded since the deadline of the 2010 photo contest last year are already entered in this year’s contest!)
The last day to enter the contest is November 21st, 2011. We’ll announce the semi-finalists shortly thereafter here on the blog, then everyone will be able to vote for their favorites! So be sure to check the blog in November.
First place prize will be a bunch of cute goodies from Japan, a $25 gift certificate to the Mochimochi Shop, a $50 gift certificate to Knit Picks (thank you Knit Picks!), and a $25 gift certificate to Schmancy (thank you Schmancy!).
Second place prize will be a handful of cute goodies from Japan, a $15 gift certificate to Mochimochi Land, and a $10 gift certificate to Knit Picks.
Third place prize will be a $10 gift certificate to Mochimochi Land and a $10 gift certificate to Knit Picks.
So get those needles clicking and those cameras snapping!

it was so fun last year to see all the entries!

Are the photos allowed to be photoshopped?
and is the contest open to anyone, anywhere?
Photoshop is OK, and everyone is welcome to enter!
anna can i email the pic 2 you? my dad wont let me have flikr
also can they be your origanal designs?
I can’t believe this is the 5th one! I might just enter this year…..though it’ll be real hard to win (Or even get an honorable mention, for that matter.) It’s the fun that counts, right? :)
joining in the question (I have a similar problem), is it possible?
We prefer Flickr, but if you don’t have a way to use it, you can email me at info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com and we can discuss.
what about crochet? i have a crochet grass sitting around waiting for something to happen…
Hm, I think crochet is fine as long as you can tell it’s based on a Mochimochi pattern. Grass is a great subject!
Do you have the link to last years photos so we don’t copy anyone ‘s previous ideas?
Ardosa, you can see all of the photos entered over the years in the Flickr pool:
I can’t wait to see all the entries! I’ll definitely have to make something next time around!
