Hello, competitors and soon-to-be competitors! Here’s the recording of my final competition live Q&A on Saturday, September 25 with the wonderful Ginny Levack, founder of Creative Cookier and also one of my competition’s esteemed judges! In this live, Ginny and I explore what makes an entry stand out and typical pitfalls to avoid. I also describe my key criteria for selecting judges and how our judging process is structured to ensure that it’s as fair and as educational as possible.

Remember: Entries are due on October 15, 5 pm CDT, so don’t delay in registering and getting your entry prepped. You might just win a part of our mega pool of prizes ($14,000, of which $8,000 is cash)! For all of the competition rules and regs, see the links below the video.
