You're cordially invited to a really BIG event!
What: The inaugural Udderly Amazing New Shop Contest at the Sunburnt Cow
When: Beginning April 1st
Who: You!! If you have an online shop that's six months and under, you can enter to win this Udderly Amazing New Shop Contest. If your shop is over six months, come cheer the contestants on. Plus, we need YOU to help choose who will win!
How: Based on your voting, some contestants will move on to the next round. Our judges will then determine who will be that month's Udderly Amazing New Shop winner!
Once the contest goes into the judging phase, the criteria will be based on a point system involving marketability; technical (clear pictures, etc.); craftsmanship; inventory; variety; and bonus points.
The winner will receive some awesome exposure on all the participating judges' blogs, as well as being regularly featured on the Sunburnt Cow for at least four months. Additionally, if the winner has a button banner, that banner will remain on the Sunburnt Cow's sidebar for six months.
Along with yours truly, the following amazing artisans will be our first contest's judges:
Deb from Paxton Valley Folk Art Shop,
Teresa from Teresa's Prim Treasures,
Wendy from Ravenwood Whimzies, and
Brenda from The Rusty Thimble.
So come join the fun! And if you have a shop older than six months, please spread the word to those who are new online. Plus, as I mentioned above, we need you to help us choose who will be serious contenders for the final rounds!
