Are you a creative person, have lots of ideas or get inspired by things around you and LOVE tutus?? ... then this competition is for you!!

Over the next month Little Fish Creations is holding a CHILDREN'S TUTU DESIGN COMPETITION where you can submit your creative tutu design ideas for your chance to have your own design become a reality.


Competition is open to Australian residents only. Please show your support of Little Fish Creations by becoming a blog follower (, twitter follower (, or a facebook fan (

Submissions can be in the form of:

* a written description of style and colours,
* a drawing,
* a photo of inspiration,
* a photo of materials or elements you might like to see incorporated into the tutu, or simply
* a costume idea of how you could use a tutu

... the list is endless.

You can submit your ideas in any format as long as you get your point across (but please do not send a photo of an existing tutu as this will defeat the purpose of you using your creative spirit).

There are over 40 tulle colours available for you to select from when constructing your design.

And you should also think of a suitable name for your design, e.g. Woodland (but I am sure you can be more creative).

Stage 1:
Submissions are to be emailed using the subject "TUTU DESIGN COMP" to by the 14th June, 2010, at 5.00 pm (Eastern states). You are welcome to submit as many designs as you like, however, only one design from five different designers will be selected for the second stage of the competition.

Stage 2:
The five most unique entries will be further promoted on this blog for fans and followers to vote on. Final votes will close 28th June, 2010 at 5.00 pm (Eastern states) and the most popular tutu design will be announced on this blog and at shortly thereafter. The winner will also be contacted by email.

The winner of the most popular design will receive a tutu (child size only) made to reflect their design as best to Dianne's ability. This tutu will then be promoted using the design name given by the designer, along with the designer's name and made available for purchase exclusively at There will also be two runners up prizes ... a $20 gift voucher each to spend on any item (custom or ready made) at

So start thinking about what colours you love, look at everything around you and draw upon inspiration from your surroundings ... I am looking forward to seeing how clever everyone is and I think this competiton will be lots of fun!!
