JoAnn Prom Dress Contest 2010

Back in May I saw that JoAnn was hosting its third annual prom dress competition, and I decided to enter. I had a blast designing and sewing the dress, and it was fun to end up saving 50% on my supplies. =) The prizes are enormous - $50,000 for first, $10,000 for second, $5,000 for third, and there are seven more prizes after that! Well, I wasn't selected as one of the twenty semi-finalists (There were over 3,000 entries!) but I had fun and it was a good experience. I'm definitely going to enter next year though! Hopefully I'll get an idea of what the judges are looking for from this years winner photos. (They have yet to announce them)

Go here to read the article about the Jo-Ann prom dress competition and the finalists.

Well, if I was the judge...I would have DEFINITELY put you in the finals. I mean, that dress looks like it came from a prom store! You did an AWESOME job.
