After you've thrown the Coolest Party, tell us about your fun and creative party theme ideas. We will select the Contest Winner in December, 2011!
Go directly to the Contest Guidelines and Submission Form below...
You did it, so let's celebrate the success…together!
You've taken your creative party theme ideas and morphed them into some of life's most memorable events! We want to give you kudos for all of the sensational foods, funny frocks, and fabulous fun that you served up! So, we're introducing our Coolest Party Contest that's brimming with fantastic prizes for you and tons of great ideas for everybody!
Just what went into making your event a winner…the thrill of planning a bash?
…your creative party theme ideas and resourcefulness?
It was likely a marvelous mix of them all that helped you achieve a perfect party! Your party planning success story could help others to mix up their own awesome event and earn you a $500 prize!
The reality is that every party is a unique happening. We want to tell us all about how you turned yours into the event of a lifetime and share those wonderful, memorable photos with everyone also so that we can see firsthand how everything looked and was enjoyed!
Last year, we had such phenomenal submissions that our judges are getting really excited about what they will get to see this time around! Submitting all of the great things about your party is really easy to do and will include photos and an essay of about 300 words featuring your best ideas!
We decided to "double up" on the excitement! If we get over 100 people submitting their creative party theme ideas, we will double the prizes! We have an awesome panel of judges and they are ready to "ooo", "aaahhh", and present party planners, like you, with some fabulous goodies for your submissions!
Your submissions are not just for our judges to see. Each submission will be given its very own page for others to admire and gather ideas! That's how everyone has a chance to get something out of this cool contest!
Here is what you need to do to get your Coolest Party submission considered::
The photos that you submit for the Coolest Party contest should be the most expressive pictures from your event. They will make your submission look amazing and help to get your page created more quickly!
How To Crop Your Photos: Cropping your pictures will help you to focus on the perfect part of the image and will also make it bigger and easier for others to see on your page. Start by using a photo editor like Photoshop or a free online editor.
This is what cropping will do for your photos:
Before the picture was cropped...
After the picture was cropped & resized...
