ReadyMade Magazine Launches Its First ReadyMade 100 Contest

ReadyMade magazine is launching the first of what it hopes will be an annual “ReadyMade 100,” celebrating the 100 projects that represent the “most functional, beautiful, interesting, sustainable manifestations of creativity.”

Those interested in participating can upload their projects to ReadyMade.com from now until December 15. Projects must fit within one of the following categories: Home & Garden, Food & Entertaining, Design, Craft, Fashion & Style, Culture, Travel & Places, and Technology & Work.

ReadyMade readers can vote on their favorite projects, with a panel of eight expert judges ultimately After the submission deadline, readers, whether submitting a project or not, can vote on the projects. Next, a panel of eight expert judges (including designer Jonathan Adler ; Instructables founder and CEO Eric Wilhelm; Grace Bonney of my favorite design blog, Design*Sponge; and DIY Network’s Amy Devers) will select their favorite submissions.

The winner will receive the title “Main Maker,” as well as a $500 reward. The Main Maker will also enjoy a three-night stay in New York City, including one night at a ReadyMade 100 party in his or her honor. To top it all off, the winning project will be featured on the cover of the magazine’s 2011 April/May issue.
