So you’d like to enter an AQS Quilt Contest, but it seems a little daunting? We have SO MANY answers for you, from photographing for the best look when entering (it makes a huge difference!), to step-by-step instructions for the online forms, to shipping tips.
You’ll find the general contest page right HERE. You can click on the Semi-finalists link to see whose quilts will appear at the new Syracuse, New York, QuiltWeek contest. The Grand Rapids and Chattanooga shows are closed for entry right now, but Des Moines is OPEN until June 5, 2015 (HURRY!). Click HERE for specific entry information for that contest. You’ll notice tabs for Rules, FAQs, and more across the top of that page.
Entry deadlines for each of the EIGHT contests in 2016 are listed HERE, too. Click on the Contest Info and Rules sections for each contest from here to find out more specific information.
At AQS, we’re here to help and we are happy to answer any questions you might have. Take a look at this CONTESTANT INFO video playlist to select from brief videos explaining photographing quilts, how to enter, adding sleeves, and much more!
Would you like to more about SHIPPING your quilt in either direction, or picking up your quilt at the end of the show? Check out this SHIPPING INFO video playlist, where Terry Guill, Director of Show Operations, answers many of the most frequent questions about shipping.
