Deadline: September 23, 2016
Entries are being accepted for the CarpetVista’s Design Competition. The competition provides you the opportunity to design carpets. The winning designs will be produced in a limited edition and sold exclusively on CarpetVista. You and your art will be marketed on Europe’s largest trading place for textile art.
The aim of the competition is for you to design a carpet, and CarpetVista will then provide the production. The carpet will be hand-tufted or hand-woven using the highest quality materials. Depending on the motifs the materials are selected, it will be either entirely of wool or with a warp of cotton and a pile of wool. Elements of silk in the pile may also occur.
- 1st prize: €2230/design for 2 winners;
- 2nd prize: €557/design for 3 winners;
- 3rd prize: €223/design for 20 winners.
