Pumpkin Decorating Contest: List


Valentine's Day DIY Showcase & Contest

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, February 1st, 2021, 11:59 PST


Join us for a Valentine's Day themed DIY showcase! Many of us are still staying in our houses and separated from our friends and family, but we want to provide Garnet Gateau’s attendees with the opportunity to showcase their crafting talents! For our DIY showcase, the theme is “love” of any kind- whether it’s the love you feel for your partner, friends, pets, family, or any other hobby, item, or person you can think of. Any creative, DIY-style submission will be considered. Show us your cakes, illustrations, sculptures, embroidery, photography, musical compositions, or wearable art!

We will be hosting a panel reviewing all your submissions on Twitch during the event. 



You can opt-in to entering the DIY contest to win a prize supplied by members of Bay Area Kei. Contest voting will take place during the event, after the panel airs. Voting will then be open until February 7th, before the Closing Ceremony, and we will announce the contest winners at the Closing Ceremony. 

Your entries can be submitted for a chance to win in one of the two categories:​
🏆 Popular Vote 
🏆 Judges’ Choice
