Photo Contest Inspiration: 2012 Winners

Happy Friday! You know what a great activity for this weekend would be? Knitting up some mochis for your entry in our just-announced 2013 photo contest!

To get you inspired, here’s a look back at the winners from last year’s contest.

Joan gave us chills with her terrific Thriller scene! She won our Judges’ Choice award.


Our top three winners (who scored gift certificates, books, and a bunch of cute and crafty goodies) were chosen by all of you who voted!

In third place was the delightfully creepy Knitted Sofa by Jill Watt!


It was a really tight race between first and second place. In the end second place went to the incredible Knitman’s Sampler by Kimberly Schaeffer!


And finally, our first-place winner was the oh-so-cute Teamwork by Amy Hicks!


As you’ve likely seen, Amy’s winning photo is now representing this year’s contest in our announcement images.

These are some big shoes to fill, but I’m sure you are all up for the challenge! See this year’s full contest details, and let’s get started!

  1. “Teamwork” is SOOO cute! Every time I see it, it makes me happy.. :)

    Photo series are fine to enter, correct?

  2. We’ve decided to focus on individual photos for this contest, since our spring contests are all about series. You can still enter a series of photos, but we’re going to be judging them individually, so it’s a good idea to make sure that they can each stand alone. Thanks for asking!

  3. You’re welcome! Thanks for the reply!

    I made a little series, but I think some of them can stand alone.. :)

  4. I am still so grateful for all of the love that “Teamwork” got last year. Whenever I see my pic in the photo contest announcement, I get a huge goofy grin on my face. So proud to represent such a fun contest that was jam packed with such amazing competition. Good luck to all of this years entries! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with this time : )

  5. You can enter as many photos as you like, but we ask that people be reasonable without setting a specific limit—10 seems like a good number to me.
