NEW CALL: Gypsy Rose Paperie's GDT Call

Deadline: Sunday, August 31, 2008

Who doesn’t love the word “free”? It’s one of the best words in the English language.
We’re looking for guest designers to help showcase our pretties, and if you make the cut, you’ll score a free kit! Check out our requirements below for more information.
While we don’t maintain a full-time design team, we do accept guest designers for our quarterly kits. If accepted, you will receive an entire kit to play with. You’re expected to use all products included (it’s ok if you have some leftovers, provided that each product is represented in your artwork) and you will have two weeks to complete your assignments.
The number of assigments we request from you will be extensive because our kits are HUGE, but will vary with each kit. If you are unable to make a committment to the deadline given, please be up front with us! We’ll do what we can to work with you, but it’s easier on everyone if we know ahead of time.

We do require the following of our guest designers:
1. You must have a digital camera, and be proficient enough with it to take clear and focused pictures of your project. You will upload these pictures to us via email (we don’t accept Flickr, Photobucket, or other links to your pictures - please send us the original digital image). If we need to, we will make a request to ship the original project to us at our cost. The project will, of course, be returned to you.
2. You are required to show your work on three major industry websites (giving credit to Gypsy Rose Paperie for kit design). While we don’t claim a partnership or affiliation with anyone, we’ll be happy to provide a specific definition and links to these sites after you’ve accepted a position as a GRP guest designer.
3. If you have a blog, online journal, or other internet communication site, we request that you also publish your work there.
4. While the copyright for your projects is yours alone, we do reserve the right to publish your work on our website, in our online galleries and in our newsletters. We will happily give credit to you, the designer, and link to any websites or blogs you request.
5. We are also happy to provide references and recommendations to any other publications, manufacturers or other industry personnel detailing our positive experiences with you.
6. We know this sounds like a lot of work! Please keep in mind that the kit you receive will have a minimum retail value of $60. This is a TON of product and it’s yours to play with for free. That’s an awesome reason to be a GRP guest designer alone!
If, after reading all of these requirements, you’d still like to be a guest designer, all you have to do is send three examples of your best work to us here at . Don’t forget to include your name, address, phone number and affiliations {other design teams
you’ve served on, past and current; industry websites you frequent; galleries your work may be featured in; blog links; any other information you tink might be pertinent}, plus digital images of your projects. We’ll get back with you within five days from receipt of your email!
{Sidenote: we do not show preference to guest design applicants because of the number of DT’s you currently serve on, number of times you’ve been published or any other accomplishments! If we’re happy with your work and it’s never been seen publicly, we’d still love to have your designs represent GRP! We ask for this information as a “getting-to-know-you” tool only.}

NEW CALL: InkaDink Designs Design Team Call

Deadline: Thursday, August 28, 2008

There's a brand new scrapbook forum coming to the web!
And we want you to be apart of all the fun!
We are looking for four members for our design team who will head up the opening of our new site and store. We are searching for talented, passionate and energetic people who LOVE scrapbooking and can really let the creativity flow.
Your responsibilities as a DT member:
To participate on the board, as well as in the monthly challenges. (Pretty much like any other design team call you've ever seen:)) We want you to have FUN. This is not about who can post the most on the board, or upload the most layouts. We are looking for people who are laid back, and can enjoy being apart of our team.
Your DTship will run for a total of six months. There will be two challenges a month, and you must use your own supplies. It's more about exposure and having the experience of belonging to a team than anything else. There will also be monthly product giveaways and DT members are encouraged to participate.
Please email with your short bio, what design teams you're apart of (if any) what scrapbook forums you are currently logged onto, and how long you've been scrapping. Please also send TWO of your favorite layouts, something that really shows your style.
DT Call will end on August 28th. We will post our final decision on our site (which is still in progress) by the 2nd of September.
Good Luck, we can't wait to see your submissions!
