Artisan Crafts Week

If you're reading this it means you're alive, and if you're alive you have to eat. Eating is more than just filling your stomach with food, the experience starts from the moment you step in the kitchen and plan your next master piece -and yes, food is art! Preparing food is one of the most common crafts, so we want you to see it as an opportunity to be artistic. And hopefully, you'll see this as an opportunity to experience the world of the Artisan Crafts.

The Contest

We want you to bake, cook, prepare, mix, or toss whatever inspires you. No limits: salads, cakes, sandwiches, smoothies, candy, cocktails... if it's humanly possible to eat it, we want to see it! Try to get a bit creative with the ingredients and the presentation, try to think of your plate as a blank canvas and food as your medium. Before you eat it all, take a photo and upload it to DA. And have fun!

The Rules

  1. The contest will run from February 8th to March 8th. Entries must be submitted to DA between those two dates.
  2. Everything must be made by you! It's ok if someone takes the photograph for you, but the cooking or baking must be made entirely by you. Please don't try to enter what you ate at a restaurant last night, or what your mom cooked for dinner.
  3. You have to submit your entry to Artisan Crafts > Culinary Arts and the appropriate folder in CRArtisanCrafts.
  4. In the description box write a few lines about your inspiration, your process and the ingredients you used. This will help us understand your work and judge it fairly, and some ingredients are not always obvious.
  5. If you use someone else's recipe (book, blog, pinterest, cooking show, etc) you need to credit it properly and add a link (if possible).
  6. You have to say that the entry was made for this contest and add a link to this journal. You can't submit your entry to other contests.
  7. You can submit ONE entry per week, and up to four entries for the entire contest. If you miss a week you can't submit two entries next week.
  8. Each participant can only win once.

The Judges

Judging will be decided by the current Artisan Crafts CV (Talty) and two of our past CVs: cakecrumbs and maytel, who are experts in everything foody. We will take into consideration the creativity, execution, the artistic qualities of your submission and the quality of the photograph. The price or rarity of the ingredients won't be taken into consideration. Photography doesn't need to be professional, but try to keep the background clutter free, get a good illumination and a good focus. A few things can go a long way! We recommend these tutorials:

The Prizes

We will pick 3 winners, each will receive:

First place: 6 months core and 1000 points.
Second place: 3 months core and 500 points.
Third place: 1 month core and 300 points.

*Prizes are courtesy of the Community Relations Team.

If you have any questions please contact Talty or leave a comment below. Happy crafting!

Quick DD Guidelines


I'm the Artisan Crafts CV!

  • I only take Artisan Crafts suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps).
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!
  • If you don't agree with a DD please contact me, the artist often has nothing to do with the feature so don't complain to them.
  • Here's my detailed DD guidelines.

How to suggest

Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.

I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion :heart:.


Custom commissions are currently closed.
