Stuller is now accepting designs for its annual March Bridal Madness competition. The contest, which is hosted on the company’s Facebook page, is one of Stuller’s longest running events, though it is undergoing some changes from years past.
“With 2021 being Stuller’s Year of the Wedding celebration, we wanted to revamp the contest to make it unique,” said executive director of marketing services and events Morgan Waters in a statement.
The contest works like this: Jewelers email an engagement ring or wedding band design they have created to firstname.lastname@example.org. On March 15, the designs will go up on Stuller’s Facebook page to be voted on by the public. Entrants are also required to like Stuller on Facebook along with sending in their designs.
In previous years, jewelers could submit any original design, but this year the company is requiring something a bit different (note that the winners pictured here are from previous years’ contests). Entries must be created using CounterSketch or MatrixGold, Stuller-owned 3-D design ware and CAD software, respectively. Entries may include modifications on an existing Stuller style, and may be rendered or hand-drawn. The deadline for entry is March 12.
After the first round of voting on Facebook, which will take place March 15–31, the top three fan favorites, chosen by which receives the most likes and reactions, will move on. The three finalists will be announced on April 1.
The final contestants will be judged by a panel of experts at Stuller, and a winner will be announced on April 12. The grand prizewinner will receive a $1,000 Stuller account credit, and the winning design will be highlighted across Stuller’s social media platforms.
