Create and Craft are thrilled to be the official sponsor for the 4th year in a row for the prestigious Cardmaker Of The Year competition in conjunction with Immediate Media.
The Cardmaker of the Year competition asks applicants to send three different handmade cards using any materials from their craft stash to Immediate Media. Winning entries are encouraged to show off versatility and the ‘wow factor’ with a range of different techniques. A panel of experts, including the editors of Cardmaking & Papercraft and Papercraft inspirations, will judge all of the entries and then decide who will be crowned Cardmaker of the Year 2019.
Crafters could be in with a chance to win the first place prize of over £1,000 of crafty prizes and the chance to be on the design team for Cardmaking & Papercraft. A second place prize and runner up prizes are also available. Entries close on the 5th September 2019.
Martina Murray, the winner of 2018’s Cardmaker of the Year and now regular designer for Cardmaking & Papercraft commented: “Winning cardmaker of the year 2018 was a dream come true for me. The top prize for me was to be part of the design team, as it gives me such a thrill when a project appears in a magazine. To anyone thinking of entering Cardmaker of the Year 2019 – go for it, you do have to be in it to win it. Good luck everyone!”
Claire Astbury, Marketing Communications Manager for Create and Craft commented:
“Create and Craft are proud to be sponsoring Cardmaker Of The Year for a 4th year running. We love that this competition gives crafters the chance to showcase their cardmaking skills, along with recognising many great talents”.
