WOVEMBER is delighted to have the support of these wonderful WOOL vendors!

To submit a photo to the WOVEMBER 2013 GALLERY, please read the following carefully.

This year – as with last year – Wovember will be focused on closing the gap between producers and consumers of yarn. The month of November will feature a sequence of woolly contents on the Wovember site, divided into 5 sections:

*growing wool
*harvesting wool
*processing wool
*working with wool
*wearing wool

A range of specific people have been invited to contribute guests posts for each section, but in addition to this, YOU are warmly invited to help shape the celebration! You can submit a photo relating to ANY of the five topics in the list, (photos should be 1024 pixels wide and saved as jpegs where possible, but if you aren’t sure how to resize images, please email your photos anyway – preferably the largest size you have rather than a tiny image)

…submissions should be emailed to wovember[at]gmail[dot]com with the section category as the email title, your name as you wish to be credited on the actual website, and any notes or quotes you wish to accompany your picture. Submissions will be uploaded to the gallery by TEAM WOVEMBER throughout Wovember, and – as with last year – winners will be selected in early December.

There are so many ways to close the gap! Submissions will be chosen based on their overall WOOL factor. How you interpret the idea of closing the gap is up to you, but for inspiration, you might want to look at the winning photographs from last year’s photo competition and read about how the winners were shortlisted.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE, and here’s to A WARM AND WOOLLY WOVEMBER! Please feel free to republish this announcement, and to put the Wovember site badge on your site in celebration of WOOL!

All winners will be announced in December 2013!

  9. Oh that photo was such fun to take, how lovely to see it again :-) I have been catching up on the Wovember blog and thoroughly enjoying every post. Ive bought my badges and this year thanks to all your inspiration I have ordered myself a Heddle Loom for Christmas. Looking forward to the rest of the months posts. Yours in wool, Jenni xx
