Try your hand at the first Rit Creative Challenge!

1. Share Your Creativity
The first Rit Creative Challenge is themed around UPCYCLING, which is defined as:

Laying hands on potential throwaways and
breathing new life, quality and value into the result.

All you need to do is upload a do-it-yourself upcycling project to the community — a project that showcases some creative way you transformed a potential disposable to make it cool and new and useful, with at least the partial help of Rit Dye. Share “before” and “after” pictures of the project, the steps you took along the way, and the Rit Dye colors you used.

Indicate that you want your project to be entered in the contest, confirm that you’re at least 18 years of age, and you’re entered. Simple.

Share as many examples as you wish with the community: your fabulous fashions, your brilliant crafts, your crafty brilliance. If the panel of judges finds a project of yours is truly inspired — based on originality, creativity, and color sensibility — you could win $250 worth of DIY supplies. Not to mention some well-deserved exposure within the community and on our site.

(A tip: take inspiration from the Color Stories section of the RIT blog, where Team Rit points you to online dye ideas from creative colorists across the globe.)

Ready to roll up your sleeves?
2. Join The Community
The Rit Color Community is open to anyone interested in joining. They make colorful things with their hands, and they often share those things online at — in hopes of inspiring other folks to do the same.

The contest begins 12/6/10 and runs though 1/28/11. Official rules are here.
