Judging and Jurying

Tomorrow is Jurying Day for twentyONE+. The lead up to this for our small committee has been 15 months of monthly meetings and lots of time spent at the computer:- emails, forms, payments, paperwork, files, sorting images…all the stuff that most people aren’t aware of that is crucial to the success of every event.

Understanding this makes my experience at last Saturdays Common Threads Wearable Art Judging Day as a participant even more delightful. I love this event and the judging day is my favourite part. My love of the back stage/behind the scenes… Seeing how everyone has interpreted the theme, amazing creations, incredible ideas. Seeing your vision come together with professional hair (thanks Duvah for doing your magic by securing the head piece with 3 bobby pins!) , makeup and photography. This is my third year in the competition so there are lots of friendly faces to catch up with and see what they have made.

This year I was honoured to have my work selected to be modeled by the gorgeous Common Threads Showcase Ambassador Rayne Embley.

The video below is a lovely overview of judging day.

And here is my documenting of the day.

At the end of the morning I met with my husband, son and a couple of our good friends went for a yummy lunch at a local Indian restaurant.

Then there was this gorgeous model with great legs!

  1. Fantastic Louise! Congratulations!
    And good on you for all your input into WAFTA’s upcoming exhibition and yes I’m sure many people don’t comprehend all the things that help make these things run smoothly.

  2. What a bonus having a video of Rayne Embley modelling your entry! I love the optical effects as the model moves. Looking forward to the show and congratulations on being selected.
