it’s that time again- today i’ll be revealing the top 20 finalists in the 2008 d*s diy contest!! there were over 500 entries this year and the competition was stiff to say the least. i narrowed down the entries to 100 and then invited the semi-finalists to re-shoot their projects to best showcase their hard work. from there i narrowed down the list to 20 finalists who i felt represented a wide range of projects in terms of difficulty level and project type. starting today until next tuesday, march 18th, you’ll be able to vote for YOUR favorite and determine our top 4 prizes. here are the details:

  • VOTING: today i’ll be posting all 20 finalists from 9 am to 1pm. there will be one post an hour (9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm) showcasing four finalists each
  • WHERE TO VOTE: click here to choose your favorite DIY project. remember that you won’t see the full finalist list until 1pm so don’t vote until you’ve seen all the options!
  • DIY Project Details: to save space, we won’t be sharing full DIY project instructions until next week. all finalist projects (complete with pictures, steps and supply lists) will be shown in full on D*S.
  • What about the rest of the entries?: So many of the entries this year were incredible so i’ve invited dozens of people to share their projects as regular DIY wednesday posts. over the next month or two we’ll see plenty of entries so stay tuned!

so what’s at stake?

this year we’ll be awarding four prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and an honorable mention.

  • 1st place will receive a $500 gift certificate to 2Modern and a check for $150, along with a readymade magazine subscription and $50 in readymade shop goods
