Hello! It's time to think about entering the 2011 PUDDLE online photo/art contest. Anyone can enter. This is a great way to participate in PUDDLE if you can't make the trip!

Last year's winning entry, Kisses When Wet by effiethedal, appeared in Doll Reader magazine (as you can see in the attached photo). I'm not sure what the prizes will be this year, but the last two years the winner received a $50 gift certificate to online store Panik's Toy Box.

The theme of this year's PUDDLE is cranes. You can represent the theme in your photo or artwork, but it's not required. What is required is that the entry be your own work, be new and taken or created specifically for the contest, and that it show Pullip, Dal, Taeyang, Namu, Byul, Isul, mini Pullip or Dal, or Angel Pullip or Dal. Photo manipulation is allowed, just tell me what was done to the photo when you submit it to me. If we receive enough entries, at the judge's discretion categories may be created and additional prizes awarded.

To enter, email a digital image of your photo or artwork to me by May 1, 2011. Complete rules here, or let me know if you have questions.

Also, I have uploaded photos from 2010 to the website.

As you saw in the earlier post, Yosuke Oba of Jun Planning USA sent me an email about the new Dollte-Porte series, asking me to put a notice and some photos on the website. I was happy to do so since JP USA has supported PUDDLE with donations of dolls and cute items the last couple of years. (I've attached a photo.)

He also mentioned that he would like to come to PUDDLE one day to “visit and bring some new products sample to show.” He can’t say for certain that he will be able to come this year, but it’s a possibility. Wouldn’t that be exciting! Of course we already have PullipStyle and their wall of dolls for sale at PUDDLE, but it would also be fun to see display samples from JP USA. So keep your fingers crossed!

If you register and pay for PUDDLE by Valentine’s Day, you will receive two free raffle tickets. Also a reminder that if you are looking for a ride, riders, or roommates, post at the PUDDLE forum!
