Call for Entries: CBS Dichroic by Design Contest 2011

Events and Contests

If you delight in dichroic, consider entering Coating by Sandberg's (CBS) Dichroic by Design Contest. It's the fifth annual contest, and the entries get more impressive every year. See the dichroic guitar project by Michelle Wilcox (pictured top left) that won last year's contest.

But if glass instruments aren't your strong suit, don't be discouraged. CBS accepts projects in multiple categories including blown glass, lampworked glass, fused glass, glass jewelry, glass sculpture, glass marbles, architectural and miscellanous.

All of the artwork must contain at least 25 percent CBS Dichoric glass, and you can submit up to three entries. To enter, submit a photograph of your artwork to Coatings by Sandberg, Inc., ATTN: Contest Coordinator, 856 N. Commerce St., Orange, CA 92867, USA. The deadline for submissions is 9/30/11.

CBS is giving away more than $5,000 in prizes, including gift certificates and glass packs. In addition, CBS features choice submissions on its Facebook page, website, marketing and advertising literature, etc. In other words, you could be famous! For more information on the contest, visit the CBS website.

And if you're looking for a great deal on CBS glass, vote in the Delphi Micro Dichro pack contest. The top three packs will go on sale, on Feb. 24-27, for only $20 (in 90 and 96 COE). This might be all you need to create that winning project for Dichroic by Design. Good luck!
