Hi, competitors! I hope you are busily planning your entries and have taken the time to register early! The 2021 virtual edition of Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ has great fun and learning in store for you, as well as tremendous prizes – now about $14,000, of which $8,000 is cash! If you haven’t yet registered, please read the Competition Overview for all of the rules and regs, and then sign up on Eventbrite to signal your intent. (Registering early is super helpful to me. It allows me to do some preliminary estimations of the number of entrants –  a figure that is critical to planning a seamless judging process. TIA!)

Now, back to my main point of this post . . . We have many wonderful sponsors to thank for this incredible prize tally, but, today, I want to give a special shout-out to our Gold Sponsors – those companies that went above and beyond by stepping up with $500 or more in cash (or $1,000 or more in product) donations. Here’s a flashy video that shows all of their logos, but please take an extra moment or two to click on their links below to explore their sites and amazing products. You will be impressed!

Also, stay tuned! I’m planning another Facebook Live for next Friday (August 20, 2021), where I’ll make myself available for an hour or so to answer competition questions!

Thanks again to our sponsors! Without their support, this competition wouldn’t be nearly as exciting as it is!
