Enchatned Doll 2010 Birthday contest

Posted in: site news


This preliminary announcement is to signal the beginning of the Second Annual Enchanted Doll Birthday Contest!
That’s right, as a part of celebrating my birthday, I am giving away one nude doll as a present to one lucky winner of the contest. My last year’s birthday contest was so rewarding that I decided to not only to give away another doll, but do it every year from this day forth.

The Enchanted Doll Birthday Contest is now an annual event. And a talent competition.

The general rule for entering the contest is simple: Make something in the theme of Enchanted Doll and send it to me as a birthday gift. The entry that blows me away, will take the winning prize of Nude Enchanted Doll.

The competition is open to any media: drawing, painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, jewelry, doll art, writing, poetry, illustration, animation or film. Any form of creative figurative expression whatsoever. If you think you can come up with a math or physics equation for Enchanted Doll-go ahead and enter it, if you believe you should write a ballad about Enchanted Doll-do it, if you know you can bake a delicious Enchanted Doll cake and deliver it to me for my birthday- then go for it. Mmmm!

Bottom line is that you can use whatever talents you have to create something beautiful and my favorite one will take the prize.

This is the general information you need to know to get started on your entries. I will make a more formal announcement with info and deadlines later this week.

Now, let’s make beautiful things.

    that’s so cool, i’ll start writing down ideas!!

  4. Marina this is too cute. And all I can do is laugh, I think I premonitioned your competition…. but I’ll definately think something up for your birthday. A good way for all us fans to show our appreciation of this little porcelain world you’ve created for us :-)

  5. Hazel says:

    Oh, I’ve been hoping for something like this (since it would take ages for me to afford an ED due to my current employment situation)! There are so many talented ED fans but I’d like to try anyway. Thank you!

  6. MissLk says:

    This is a beautiful invitation and a sweet challenge. Marina, you will be flooded with packages that the local post office will start an investigation :)

  18. Cay says:

    Wah ! So cool ! What a good idea ! And it is so exciting !

  19. Manü says:

    Always Marina the Generous, even if i already have my own enchanteddolls i decide to participate, of course i would like to leave the place for someone who dream to have one.
    but when you have one ED’S you would like to have more, and only life know, the contest will be more fun this year.i’m waithing the annoucement, but is that mean that we have to send you the project before your Birthday, and could it be also a enchanteddolls costume, or an accessoires, thanks Marina for your kindly gift to the one who will win, Take care

  20. Tirelessartist says:

    Марина, извини, твою тему закрыли, так пишу сюда. Но не выдумала же я про падарки (цитата из твоего же блога “send it to me as a birthday gift”) :)
    Знаишь для меня Ñ‚Ñ‹ долго была примером как кукольника так и бизнесмена (бизнесмена даже больше), но то как Ñ‚Ñ‹ подала эту идею конкурса – вызвало улыбку. А твоя реагция вызвала улыбку ещё по больше. Ненадо так реагировать, не все же в этом мире враги… и не всё деньгами мерят ;)

  21. Alanielle says:

    Thank you for a great possibility to give you a part of my inspiration with your dolls… and to have a chance to win this wonderful piece of art!

  22. Anne (Paris) says:

    Great idea Marina!

    Depending on the deadlines, i think i’m gonna try something!

  23. Erin says:

    I keep meaning to draw one your dolls. I guess this is my incentive :)

  24. silvana says:

    Hum!!! You are so very creative. I love this idea and i take the challenge!

  25. Orangey says:

    Oh lord, I need to try this! I was just thinking about your last contest and decided to check if you were having another one. This new tradition is wonderful. I know there are many talented folks that love your dolls, I’ll just have to try my best *_*

  26. Tatiana says:

    Здравствуйте Марина! Мне нравятся ваши куклы, а дочь вообще по ним с ума сходит. Хотела бы для нее куколку попробовать выиграть, но не пойму по срокам. Сроки конкурса не смогла найти где обговорены.

  27. Ilona says:

    Great idea! And inspiring! xxx

  28. Cheryl says:

    Hi Marina

    Happy Birthday!

    Oh my goodness, I have admired and adored your beautiful enchanted works of art for some time now, and have only dreamed of actually having my very own! This is a wonderful thing that you do and cannot wait to see how creative everyone and myself can be…..

  29. Hagny says:

    I’d like to see previous winner’s work :)

  30. Sarandipitty says:

    Oh Marina!

    I am so excited about this I can’t even begin to express it. Ingenious idea you had as usual. We are all inspired by your work but making you presents takes it to an entirely new level! I so wanted to win last year but didn’t have the time to be very active on your forum. By the time I could read through all the interesting discussions I was out of the loop entirely and could not keep up.

    I already know exactly what I am going to make!!! So excited!!!! Even if I don’t win, I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    :) Sara

  31. Lindsay says:

    Wow, I’m so nervous and excited *_*. I have all these ideas flowing through my head, but I don’t know which to do. I know there will be lots of great things coming your way, so I’m a little discouraged, but I’ll try anyway. There’s always a chance. :] I can’t wait for additional information!! I’ve adored your dolls for so long, Marina, that I’ll be terribly sad if i don’t win :[ But I still can’t wait to see what others have to offer. :]

  32. Zoloe says:

    Oh great contest, i adore this amazing dolls.

  46. Leah says:

    How do we enter the contest Marina? Do we just send you a picture by e-mail, or, how does that work? Maybe you send you the actual project by regular mail? I would like to enter though, it sounds like a lot of fun :D

  47. Adrian says:

    Marina, when you published new information?, y dony know if i have to send to you by fisic mail, o a photo in internet….

  48. Claudia:S says:

    I was assuming we had to send it by regular mail, since it was supposed to be a B-day gift – so I was waiting for more info. Now I am not sure… can it be a photo sent by email? Is the contest still on?

  49. sigma82 says:
