Default Fun Only! Glass Olympics Spring Fling- prizes

Just for fun! This is not a big deal competition and is meant mainly to get the community involved in something together so I hope there is a lot of participation. Open to everyone who does glass of any kind- beginner through advanced...there are 2 different categories and 3 winners.

You do not need to make new pieces to enter into this! If you have ever made anything spring themed and have a picture of it on your hard drive...please, feel free to enter it. I just want to see pretty stuff! LOL

Click below to visit the contest page and enter.

http://www.marylockwood.com/glassolympics

How to ENTER:

1- click public uploader
2- select photos to upload
3- include title of work, your name, and the word gold or silver with each image when you upload
4- leave email address field blank
5- click finish upload
6- contact me with any changes you would like made


It isn't mandatory, but I recommend signing up to my mailing list if you enter the contest. You can do that from my 'Contact Me' page on my site. That is because I'll be using the mailing list to make announcements about the contest and this way you will be sure to get them.

I really really hope that people will participate in this. I think it will be fun and we sure could use some spring time!

Once we start getting entries into the contest, be sure to check back occasionally and leave positive comments on the images. They count toward the judging and voting. Everybody gets a say!

~~Mary

I forgot to give dates...Duh!

Mary, this is fun! I participated, but I can't see my uploaded pics myself, is that right?

Hi Anouk.

From what I had my settings at Bravenet (that I'm using to host the album), I had it set to public so everybody could be sure their pictures uploaded.

But the way it has worked in reality is that each person gets a private album (that only I can see), then I move the images and then delete your album.

If I wanted it to be the other way, I think I'd have to upgrade to a more expensive hosting plan and I don't want to do that if I don't have to.

So, I thought you would be able to see your images as you upload them, but apparently that isn't going to happen.

You just have to upload them and then I move them into the category and then everybody can see them.

Yours are moved now, so if you want to check them, they are there to see!

I will move images several times a day, so if you go a whole day without seeing your images in their correct category, then there was a problem with your upload and you need to try again.

Thanks for participating Anouk.

It is really fun to see pictures in the Gold category!

I'm off to fix all the text that says you will be able to see your images immediately. Dang it. LOL

This is just a notice to let people know that you do not have to make new pieces to enter into the Glass Olympics!

The only guideline at all is that your entries be themed for spring. It can be older work.

Thanks!
~~Mary

I just love playing with glass, don't care if I ever sell any.

Mary, I got your newsletter and I did see the beads in the right place. Not a problem for me, but it's good that peeps know you can't see your pics at first .

Now come on everyone, where are those spring beads???

Or is it an April's Fool joke and am I the only one falling for it ?

What a wonderful idea, I will try to find something spring like. The only thing I can think of is some I did when I was trying to learn twisties, they aren't that great but they are spring like. This will be fun to see what other people have made.

Hi!

I loved the picture you entered and because you didn't specify which category, I put you into the intermediate. Then I read your post and saw you've only been flameworking a year. I moved your into the beginner category, but if you want moved back to gold, just let me know!

I never would have guessed you were so new!

~~Mary

LOL, nope. I love to pull April Fool's jokes, but this isn't one of them. LOL

Two new entries today! It's rolling now! I hope it keeps up momentum.

This is fun!

Got 'em! They sure look springy to me!

Thanks for entering, it is great to watch the album get more and more pictures.

Thanks Moth. I ACTUALLY started when I took a beginning beading class Jan 27, 2008. Feb 14 was when I got my first torch of my own.

I don't know what to classify myself as actually... I think for glass, experience is really hard to gauge. Someone can have done glass for 10 years but put 2 hours 2x a month into it... others can lampwork 3 months and have the same hours the 10 year person put in in real time... but back to back experience with no relearning curve.

I took John Kobuki's marble class about 2-3 weeks after getting my first torch (2 months after hearing that lampworking existed), and I noticed that the moment I told the other students how long I had worked glass for... they stopped being interested in talking to me (well, that and my stringer pulling and maria making skills were rather lacking...).

The boulders I grew on both shoulders from my first month in glass DROVE me to do it 20 hours a day til I felt I was halfway decent at it, which for me was winning the GA Glass Challenge 6 months after touching a glass rod for the first time.

I just love contests, don't care if I don't actually win anything, they force me to think, they force me to challenge myself, and they give me a gauge of my progress. I'm just weird that way, I can't live knowing I'm suckage at anything I care about.

That said, you have to be one of the most interesting personalities in glass... as I said before, only a few give back to the community as much as you try to do, and always with such regard for newbies. I respect that a lot.

Helen,

Thank you very very much for your kind words...you've made my morning!

And yes, I totally agree with you can't measure experience by 'time'. There are just too many variables! You would have to measure aptitude, hours spent at the torch, what those hours were spent doing, talent, physical ability and lots more...too much for me to figure out that's for sure! That's why I was letting people pick their own category; it is hard to label people when you don't know their story.

With that said, if anyone ends up in a category and they want to move to the other one, just drop me a note. I'll put you wherever you want to go.

This is a fun-only competition. I don't have a big enough name to get you any prestige from winning...but at least that also means that if you don't win...that won't mean much either. LOL (How is THAT for motivation? Geez it's a good thing I don't work in public relations. I might be taking that comment out later as I come to my senses so read it quick before it's gone.)

~~Mary

It IS fun!

I just wanted to remind anyone who hasn't entered yet:

You do not have to put your email address in when uploading your images. It does give a text field for you to input an email address, but nothing bad happens if you leave it blank. Your picture will still upload just fine.

If you do fill it in, don't worry...I'll take the emails out when I put your pictures into the album, that way nobody can spam you or harvest your email address for dastardly deeds!

~~Mary

Two more weeks left to enter! Voting starts April 2nd so if you've been thinking about sending in some pictures, I can't wait to see them!

Don't forget to leave comments for the entries that are already there.
