The 3Doodler is an amazing device, and the folks there always make sure they give you plenty of project ideas and activities you can do with that pen. (For example, I just wrote an article on 3Doodler’s “Doodle Baked” Tiffany Candle Holder activity, and it has made me decide to go ahead and get one of my own.) You can just imagine the dizzying array of things that can be created when you put these pens in the hands of talented and established artists and budding amateurs alike. The folks at 3Doodler report being amazed at all of the things that people have done with the 3Doodler, including 3Doodled contact lenses! They ran a thematic bi-weekly “Doodle Off“; people jam-packed 3Doodler’s Facebook and Instagram pages with great creations. Out of this experience, they’ve decided to get even more creative about acknowledging 3Doodling creativity by having a 3Doodler Awards competition.
So, if you are one of those 3Doodling fanatics who has been obsessively using your pen, and even entering creations into the Doodle Offs, this contest is for you. Or you also may just be learning about how people use the pens, and have your own ideas in mind. This contest is also for you. Anyone can Doodle, right?
3Doodler has announced the competition will honor eight different categories in its first ever 3Doodler Awards. These categories include: and EDU Award (for education related entries), a Doodle of the Year Award, Fashion, Interior Design, Characters, Wildlife, Mixed Media, and Artist.
To enter you’ll just need to follow a few steps. First choose your category. Next, you create your Doodle or enter one you have already made — the only qualification is it has to fit the category theme. Then you fill out the entry form for each separate entry. You can enter as many categories as you want, but remember you have to fill out a form for each separate category. (Click here for full contest rules.) Also, post your entries on your Instagram and Twitter with a #3DoodlerAwards hashtag for all to see.
The deadline is December 10, with winners announced on December 17, 2015. And I bet you are wondering what winners receive, beyond the awesome 3Doodling Contest Winner status bestowed on them?
Prizes are exactly what you will need to keep Doodling: one 2.0 pen, one year supply of plastic strips, a project book, and full accessories. And now that you know how great it would be to receive all of this excellent Doodling paraphernalia, then you may also be interested in who is doing the judging: who’s going to decide your 3Doodling Awards fate?
Panelists represent a range of digital technology and media sector professionals, including: Bloomberg Business’ Head of Digital Editorial, Nate Lanxon; CNET reporter Katie Collins; Creator of Chronodex, Sr. Buyer for Stationery and Moving, City Super/ LOG-ON’s Patrick NG; and Kickstarter’s Lead for Tech and Design Parterships, John Dimatos.
That’s enough information to get you started imagining all of the things you can 3Doodle for the Awards between now and December 10. Good luck, 3Doodlers! What are your favorite 3Doodles? Let us know in the 3Doodler Awards 2015 forum thread on 3DPB.com.
