Summertime is This Month's ACT Contest Theme

July marks the beginning of the changes to our ACT contest. We have switched from a weekly theme to a monthly theme, and right now the theme is Summertime.

We began accepting entries on July 1st, and as an ACT member, you have until the 21st of this month to post your entry in our discussion thread on Cafemom. Please post a picture of the item you are entering, as well as the link to the item in your Artfire studio as well as the name of your studio and a link to your studio. One entry per artist please.

By extending the submission window to three (3) weeks, we are hoping more artists will be able to participate. If they didn't already have something in their shop that fit the theme, they have time to create something and get it posted.

Voting will take place the following week on this blog between July 23 and July 30. Beginning August 1, The winner will have their rapid cart displayed in the top right hand corner of our blog for the following month.

August 1st will also be the day we begin accepting entries for August's theme, which will remain a secret for now. We are still working out the details and hoping to be able to open our contest to all Artfire artists by August. More on that later.

So far we have nine (9) entries for July, and we still have 18 days to go. So if you don't have an item that fits the summertime theme, maybe you can create something and enter it.

Oh, I just love summer!!! How about you???
