Judged Trendy Tundra Trench Coat Challenge

Eligibility: Artists residing in Alaska or the Yukon

Entry Fee: $10 or $100 late entry fee

February 2nd is the deadline for the finished coat along with size information (so we can begin finding the models).

Absolute deadline. February 23rd. There is a $100 late entry fee for any entry delivered after February 2nd.

An entry must be accompanied by the entry fee and a signed copy of the entry form, to be accepted.

Entries must be a wearable garment and ready to wear.

1st place Basket full of goodies worth $350 value
2nd place Basket full of goodies worth $250 value
3rd place Basket full of goodies worth $150 value

A photo showing how the coat is to be worn must be included with the entry if there is any question on how it is to be displayed.

Entries must have a cloth label sewn on the inside at the top of the coat listing the name of piece, the artist’s name, address, and phone number. The label must contain the same name and contact information that appears on the entry form. A paper label pinned to the entry is not acceptable.

If the artist chooses, their entry can be for sale. Be sure to include the price of the coat if you decide to offer it for sale.

All coats will be modeled at the Wearable Art Fashion Show then displayed at Sunday's Fiber Show, even if previously sold.

Entries must be packed in a cloth bag, i.e. garment bag, with the artist's name on it. This makes sure the piece can be returned to the artist in good condition.

Artists are responsible for door-to-door shipment and return freight.

Alaska Fiber Festival retains the right to disqualify pieces that do not meet exhibition standards.
