Ready for Season Nine? {Sign Up Closed!}

 Ahoy there! 
 My name is Willow, and I will be hosting this season :) 

Thank you to Jessie for being such an amazing {and challenging} host. Some themes were hard, but fun!

Wow, I was so nervous the days following sending my photo in {the last day for it}. Wow, I was sure that Phoebe had me beat! Phoebe, you're such an amazing photographer, I love the way you make your photos so vibrant!

 A little about me: I'm a Christian, doll lover, Lord of the Rings freak, Star Wars nerd and Narnia liker.

Anyhow, now it's time to sign up for the next season. Normally, it's 15-20 {read the rules, people} but I thought, out of the kindness of my heart, that I would allow one extra person {plus the fact that twenty-one is a favorite number of mine}

Read the Rules at the bottom of this post!

Email me or comment to sign up!

Feel free to ask me any questions via comment or

{*This means that I have not received your headshot}

RULES OF THIS COMPETITION

1. You must use an American Girl Doll.

2. You must take all of the pictures for your contest.

3. It should be understood that if you fail to turn in your entry too late, you will be automatically eliminated.

4. Please, please please think about which doll you will enter. This contest is going to be a lot about personality, so you should know your dolls and consider which one to enter before you sign up. This also means NO SWITCHING DOLLS in the middle of the competition. Also, try to choose a doll with nicer hair. You don't want her hair to be frizzy in the middle of an important photo, where it might be noticed. If you can't though, that's fine : )

5. Editing/watermarking your photos is encouraged!! If it helps you be more creative with your picture, go ahead and do it, although if your picture looks good enough without any editing you don't have to. But at least marking your name {e.g. your name with doll name} in a corner or something is highly encouraged.

6. In some rounds, you will be allowed to do more than one picture. I'll be sure to make it clear when and when not this is acceptable. 

7. I will give out one {or two} honorable mention {s} each round to the best picture of that subject. Getting an honorable mention does not mean that you will win or get top 3. 

8. To stay in the competition, you must take clear photos, where your doll is the main subject, be creative-try to think of your own new ideas- and, say the subject is "My hobbies", I don't want it to be sitting under a tree. 

Sign up away!

Love,
Willow
