    With everyone stuck at home, we decided to host a craft-themed contest to inspire others. Please submit your best crafty article (from any Network Site, as long as you are making something) to contests@hubpages.com. We will choose five winners whose articles will be featured on our social platforms (one per week) and in the forums. The deadline is July 15th!

      Are you saying you want people to create a new crafty item which is as yet unpublished or are you choosing craft articles which are already on the network sites?

        I want to know the answer, too. Can we submit the already published crafty hubs that we have?

      I would like to see the winning crafts articles, it's a pity I don't see too many arts and crafts articles floating around here.
      I'm submitting my fantasy world map article, it's the closest thing I have to an actual craft. big_smile

          Thanks, Sally.
          I was thinking Hobbylark. I visited it a lot during the lockdowns to check what other Hubbers do indoors. I mixed up Felt Magnet and Fat Ring in my head, and I thought they are one and the same thing. Actually, the articles at Felt Magnet are what I thought I would find at Hobbylark. Thanks again, I have another niche site I can visit.

    Are you talking about our already published articles elsewhere or we have to write a new hub. I am getting confused.

      sallybeaposted 13 months agoin reply to this

      Yes it was not clear because one cannot have an article on a Network site unless it is already published, so perhaps we will get some clarity soon.  If it is a competition, are there any prizes or is this just for the additional traffic we may receive?  In the past we always received some remuneration but this has not happened for a long time.

      As long as it's published on a Network Site, you can submit! It can be an older article or one you just wrote.

      At this time, we are only featuring the winner's work on our platforms.

        Is there a limit to how many one can submit?

        1. samanthacubbison profile image88
          samanthacubbisonposted 13 months agoin reply to this

          For my own sanity, let's say two.

            sallybeaposted 13 months agoin reply to this

            Indeed!  I will wait until my newest one makes a Network site and maybe add another if it does. Thank you.

    Its not clear to me yet. I'm still confused, please tell us more details about this and where to submit if we write any article on any topic of arts?

    Thanks.

        Hi theraggededge, and all out there, the word 'crafty' sounds double-minded and deceiptive to me. Am I to write like a 419er? Lol!

        The address to send your article link to is in the initial post.

        Articles need to be about creating or making something with your hands. So, painting, sewing, maybe cooking (not sure), woodwork, pottery... all that kind of thing.

          Thanks for explaining, @theraggededge. I thought the instructions were pretty clear, but I've learned that I should always elaborate more!

    If HP announces a grand prize winner, and if they give that grand prize winner a $25 contest prize; I will match that contest prize with another $25 for a total of $50 to the winner. Not a joke; as is known, if I say I will pay, I will pay. However and let me be clear: HP must pay the grand prize winner $25 before I will add my $25 to the grand prize winnings for a total of $50 to the winner. No More, no less. If HP does not pay, then I do not pay.

      Then I guess you're not paying. smile

        paradigmsearchposted 13 months agoin reply to this

        Yes, you can. I know Maven and I know their budget. Heck, I'm even interested in their stock. Maven can afford to throw $25 at us. big_smile
