Contests 2020

We will have both pre-contests and contests presented during the Beadalong weekend. Some contests will have a jury, whilst others will be settled by voting among the participants. All contests have an extra lottery prize given to a random contribution. This means that everybody will have a chance to win, regardless of experience!

Pre-contest 1 2020

Connected

Connected. To belong together. Not often have we been so reminded of the importance of being together as during this strange spring 2020.

For this competition you need to make an entry with at least two parts that somehow belong together. It can be one part for each family member, one gin and one tonic, one Batman and one Robin… The parts shall either be physically connected or be possible to connect somehow.

Make a competition entry that has at least one bead. It may be some kind of jewelry or a completely different object, you decide!

The top three will be decided by the Beadalong participants through digital voting. They win 1000 SEK, 700 SEK and 400 SEK worth as gift cards from our sponsor, the Swedish bead shop Anjalu! In addition to this, one price will be raffled among the other entries.
