The 2015 Fabric8 Contest theme is Botanical Sketchbook. Grab your sketchbook and take some time to stop and smell--and draw--the flowers! In this year’s Fabric8 Contest, Spoonflower and Moda Fabrics are seeking designs reminiscent of those found in a botanical sketchbook. Whether you celebrate the lush botanicals of the tropical forest of your dream vacation or the dandelions peeking through your sidewalk, show us a page from your book with your entry in this year’s Fabric8 Contest! For more botanical sketchbook inspiration, follow our Botanical Sketchbook Pinterest board. Please refrain from using trademarked characters, photos, clipart or other non-original images or ideas in your designs. The design you submit must be your own original work, has not been previously published, and does not contain any trademarks, logos, copyrighted material, or any other intellectual property belonging to any third party. There’s no right or wrong approach to creating subject matter for this contest, but in the end the judges from Moda Fabrics and Spoonflower will select, from all of the entries submitted, 100 designs for the semifinal round of voting, which will be open to the public. The top eight designers, determined by popular vote, will be asked to develop three more designs to round out their collections, and then the public will choose the winner from the eight collections.
