Come One! Come All!
Polymer Clay Central is holding its 156th Polymer Clay Central Challenge for January 2014, beginning our 16th YEAR (!!) of contests, and we welcome our NEW sponsor, Sculpey Products. Our themes for this contest are HAPPY HOLIDAYS or ANTIQUING, a great mix of theme and technique, so get your imaginations going and get your project ready and in email! (and any holiday at this time of year qualifies, not just Christmas or New Year!)
We now accept PHOTO entries for the PCC Challenge! Under the new rules, contestants can send in a total of three views of their entry - one full size picture and up to two optional detail shots. To authenticate the projects, we also request a picture of the contestant holding the entry. This will be a total of four photos. Submissions can be sent by using the form below, or you can use your own email. If you use your own email, the subject HAS to be PCC Challenge Entry (this will get through our spam filters), and be sure to include your name and address (in case you win).
For those contestants who don't have digital cameras, or who aren't confident of getting a good picture, you can still send in your entry, with name, address, email address, and return postage included, and we will photograph your entry. If you are mailing, please email us and let us know that your package is coming.
The deadline to send in pictures for the contests is the 18th of January (If you are mailing in your entry, and it will be a little late, please email us and let us know and then send it Priority Mail - DO NOT use expensive Express Mail!), and the Contest page will be posted on or about the 20th of the month. Voting will continue to the end of the month, and then the Winners will be announced. The Winners Page will stay on the web until voting begins for the next Contest, at which time it will be placed in our Contest Archive.
To plan ahead, please visit our Contest Schedule Page for the upcoming months and their Dual Themes and Sponsors!
