How long is the DT call running for?
The DT call will run from Wednesday 1st June until Tuesday 7th June 2011 , 9pm (GMT).
When will the winners be announced?
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 15th June 2011 and will be issued their challenge months as soon as possible.
When do the challenges run?
Our challenges run from Wednesday morning to the following Tuesday, finishing at approximately 10pm.
What will be required of you?
You will need to commit to participate in the weekly challenges for ONE MONTH using the theme set and any sponsor images provided. Your completed project will need to be uploaded to the Challenge Blog by Tuesday evening ready for the new challenge published on the Wednesday morning. You will also be asked to comment on the challenge entries (which we run on a rota system). Please not that the Fab'n'Funky DT strongly believe that everyone who enters our challenges should receive recognition from the DT for participating as we have a strong and loyal following.
You will be granted access to the Fab'n'Funky DT blog during your month as GDT so that you can access the challenges, upload your projects to the Challenge Blog and also obtain any necessary sponsor images.
Do I need experience?
In a word . . . " NO " ! We just want people who are enthusiastic, love to craft and are up for a challenge! If you are on other DT's that doesn't exclude you either but please do consider your work load when entering our DT Call.
Is there any financial reward?
Again in a simple word . . . " NO " ! We are very lucky however as many of our sponsors do supply us with their images &/or products in the weeks they sponsor.
How are the themes set?
The DT get together and come up with loads and loads of suggestions for themes. We then vote (as a DT) on all these suggestions and the Top 4 or 5 are then chosen as our themes for the following month. However . . . watch this space challenges goers out there ! ! ! There are times that the sponsor chooses the theme or alternatively we use the prize offered as the stepping point for our theme. As a GDT, you will be involved in help setting challenges even though you are only with us for a month.
The DT is run as its own mini democracy and everything is openly discussed between us all. Any decisions affecting the challenge blog are agreed and acted upon as a team, so obviously we are looking for team players to join us.
So if you are interested, please do have "a go" as you never know. If you entered last time and were unlucky, please do not let this put you off entering this time around.
Now if you have any further questions that have not been covered in this post, please leave a comment below and we will answer your question(s) ASAP.
Good luck everyone and as always, many, many, many thanks for your continued support, enthusiasm and participation in our weekly challenges.
