1. Why is the entry fee $100?
Your entry fee includes the cost of materials, teams will be able to pick-up their materials from Dunn Lumber’s Seattle store on Sept. 7th by presenting their registration ticket
2. Can we team up with other entrants to pool our material kits?
coordinating with other teams to pool materials is strongly encouraged. Take this opportunity to meet some of your fellow Seattle designers. We will share the list of entrants with each team on Sept. 7th, groups will be able to swap or share materials at that point.
3. What is the “one” material from the ReStore? What does one mean?
We are leaving the interpretation of “one” material up to entrants. It could mean one single item or one material type. Your entry will get you a 15% discount at the ReStore in Seattle but you may purchase your additional material where you choose.
4. Do we have to provide our own fasteners?
Yes, view this a design opportunity.
The festival would prefer natural materials tones but if you must paint restrict your shades to only black or white paint.
6. Is there a size limit?
No, however we ask entrants to keep their square footage to approx. 32sf or less. We will make exceptions on a case by case basis.
7. Who is the Jury? What is the Prize?
The jury will be made up of designers from the participating organizations of the Seattle Design Festival. Due to our limited funding, the Design Jam should be considered an opportunity to participate in the festival and promote your own design as opposed to a true blue design competition. However, we will be publishing the winning entries and there may be also be potential display opportunities beyond the design block event.
8. Are we required to use all the materials?
While entrants creative use of each material will factor into the judging, the use of all materials in an entry is not explicitly required.
