Trollbeads receives thousands of suggestions for new bead designs from it’s fans, ranging from the inspired and truly creative to the downright bizarre. Therefore, for the last couple of years they have hosted an annual design competition: “The Peoples’ Bead”. In 2010 they received over 6000 entries, winnowed it down to 10 finalists, and allowed Trollbeads fans around the world to vote online to choose the new addition to the collection. Here’s the announcement that just came out:“Dear Trollbeads Friends, Now it is time for one of our big and exciting events to take place: Peoples’ Bead! This is your chance to get a design added to the Trollbeads collection. We invite you to upload a design you have created yourself to the Trollbeads Universe site. If Trollbeads Friends vote your design the winner, we will add your design to the permanent collection this Autumn 2011. The semi-finalists will each receive a copy of the winning bead, and the finalists will receive an extra, special gift.
What? This is totally up to you and your imagination. Share your great idea with us!
When? Before April 26, 2011
How? Upload your design to www.trollbeadsuniverse.comWe are sure you have absolutely amazing ideas. Happy Designing! Good Luck, The Trollbeads Team.”
I’m pulling out my sketchbook and sharpening my pencil… determined that this is the year I get my brilliant idea in before the deadline!
