Quilt Around The World : Mini Quilt Competition

Quilt Around The World is an innovative online quilt magazine for quilters around the world.
They have notified The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc of their 2015 Schedule of Events.

They start the New Year 2015 with an exciting challenge for all interested quilting friends: Under the motto "50pictures" an inspirational photo featuring one of various nature and man-made motifs will be published on the Quilt around the World website every week as an inspiration for individually crafted miniature quilts.
The quilter's task is to interpret one or more of these motifs in the form of a miniature quilt in the course of the year 2015. The main focus is to have fun and be surprised each week - to receive new inspirations for creative patchwork projects.

All submitted miniature quilts will first be published anonymously in the 50pictures online gallery during the year. 
In March 2016, an international jury will select three winning quilts. All participants can decide whether they want to receive individual feedback of the jury members for their miniature quilts.
Quilt around the World also plans to present all submitted miniature quilts in an international exhibition. There will also be an exhibition catalog.

The participation fee is 25 Euros. The number of submitted miniature quilts is not limited. No Quilt around the World membership is necessary to participate. The net proceeds from the participation fees will be donated to the international humanitarian organization Doctors without Borders.

All information about 50 pictures Mini Quilt Challenge and registration form is available at the 50 pictures web page

The Competition has already begun with the first 3 weeks of inspirational photos already available for perusal.
 Week 1 was "Cacti", Week 2 was " Bazaar" and this week is "Seaweed".
Inspirational photos will appear each week until 19th Dec 2015.
