I just saw this on the Ugly Betty website and thought how perfect for us!...
http://www.abcuglybettycontest.com/
Thinking we could do a lot better than Project Runway contestants did last season.

*****
Have you got the skills to design a fabulous couture dress? Do you have the creativity to blow past obstacles? Here's your chance to prove it! Create a dress that will appear in an episode of ABC's Golden Globe-nominated series Ugly Betty!

Here's the deal: Christina, Mode magazine's resident keeper of "the closet," is commissioned by a prominent celebrity to design a dress to be worn at a formal public event-- but she's snowed in at the office! With twelve hours to execute her design and no fabric to work with, Christina is forced to the use everyday office supplies to make her creation.

That's where you come in. Help Christina make the formal dress!

Submit drawing(s) or sketch(es) of your Design, showing both the back and front of the garment, along with instructions on how to construct it (i.e. materials used, shape, form and color) only using office supplies such as tape, bubble wrap, shopping bags, calendars, shoe boxes, hole punchers, paper clips or newspaper, just to name a few. Also, submit an original Essay in 100 words or less, discussing the underlying concept for the Design.

A dress based on the winning design will appear in an upcoming episode of the show! The winning "designer" will receive a trip for two (2) to Los Angeles, CA for the taping of the Ugly Betty television show scheduled to take place on 02/02/2007, where a dress based upon the winner's Design will be incorporated in the Show.

What are you waiting for?

It's time to REALLY make it work!

I would like to enter, but if I had won (which is a million to one chance for me) I wouldn't be able to go as I don't care for travelling in airplanes. Cry Oh well.....

Perhaps this is not an option for you, but could you enter it under your mom's name? And then if you happened to win, you could be her guest?

Just a thought if you really want to do it...

I just spotted this, too. This one is made for craftsters! I would enter if I knew how to work with those materials. Anyway, I will already be living in L.A so it's not much of a prize for me  Undecided

Gah, I have a great plan.
I asked my mom if she do that.
She said "It wouldn't be honest"

this totally inspired me, I just sent in my entry.  thanks for sharing this here I have friends that watch this show, but I've never seen it (maybe I shouldn't admit that? lol 

I love how I can sit and not come up with an idea to make for myself for days, but then some crazy arse 'competition' comes up and the ideas start pouring into my mind.  I'm not the best artist on earth, but I think my drawing turned out cute Cheesy

Good luck to everyone that decides to play Smiley
