    Venus Zine Craft-Off Contest

    Complete details at

    WHAT: The third annual Venus Zine Craft-Off Contest, a competition pitting the craftiest in the land against one another to come up with the best, most creative, most fantabulous DIY creations imaginable ... for less than $50. Winners will be chosen from the submissions received, and the best projects will be featured in the winter 2007–2008 issue of Venus Zine. Winners will receive a four-issue subscription to Venus Zine — additional prizes to be announced. Winners also will be featured in the magazine (photo and bio and all).

    WHO: Any Venus Zine reader is welcome to participate, whether you’re a DIY businessperson or just have a flair for the crafty.

    HOW: Your project should be an innovative, unusual creation using materials whose total cost does not exceed $50. We’re looking for jewelry, clothing, home décor, bags, belts, furniture, bath and body treats, pet goodies, and whatever else you can think of. Try to come up with unexpected uses for objects, or put a new spin on an old favorite. Surprise us with your boundless creativity. Though the winners will be featured in a holiday gift how-to guide, your project need not be holiday-themed.

    Your entry consists of two parts:
    1. Photographs of your project, and 2. a set of instructions for assembling it.

    How-tos should be concise but sufficiently detailed so that Venus Zine readers may replicate your work. Please include a materials list that gives the approximate cost of each material.

    HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR BRILLIANT IDEA: E-mail jpegs of your Craft-off Contest submission along with how-to instructions to

    DEADLINE: All entries must be received by September 20, 2007, to be considered. We will notify you soon after that date if your project is chosen to be featured.

    Ladies and gentlemen, fire up your glue guns, rev up your sewing machines, and show us what you’re made of!

    PRIZES: Interested in applying to be a Craft-off Contest prize sponsor? Get in touch with Anne Brindle at Keep checking back! Prizes will be announced soon.
