The judges and I are getting SO excited to see all of your cookie creations! But don’t forget: both 2-D and 3-D entries to Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ are due in about one week, on October 15 at 5 pm CDT, to be exact.

Again, you must register on Eventbrite first (and pay a nominal $15 USD fee; second link below) before you will be sent links to Cookie Connection where you will upload your entries. Please be sure to allot enough time to register; prepare your entry photos, video, and other materials per the competition rules (first link below); and to upload to Cookie ConnectionAny entries received after this cutoff time will not be judged, so start early to be assured a crack at the $14,000 in prizes!

Also, important: Cookie Connection will send an auto-notification (screen pop-up) once your entry is successfully submitted. The system will not allow incomplete entries, and will return an error if you’ve left a required field empty. So you can rest assured that, if you get the pop-up notification, your entry has been received. Please do not expect further confirmation from me, so look for that pop-up! 🙂

Best of luck to all competitors!
