To help you get in the spirit of the royal wedding-- and look the part of a guest -- we're holding a hat-design contest.We want you to create a fantastic headpiece -- and don't worry about upstaging the bride. No materials are off-limits, and it can't be too big! Here are the rules:
You may start with a hat and embellish it, or make the hat from scratch. If you start with a hat, you must send us "before" AND "after" photos.
By "hat" we mean any accessory that you wear on your head. It may clip or tie on.
Men's and kids' hat creations are welcome, too!
Never miss a local story.
One hat per person. More than one person may work on an entry, but you may not enter more than one hat under your name.
An entry will be considered one e-mail with no more than three high-resolution photos attached. The body of the e-mail must include the creator's name, address, best contact phone number and age. A brief description (100 words) of the hat may be included. E-mails must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Wedding hat contest" in the subject line.
Hats will be judged by a panel at the Star-Telegram, and winners will be notified no later than April 19. Winners will be photographed at the Star-Telegram studio in downtown Fort Worth and featured in the Your Life section the week of the wedding.
You must live in North Texas to enter. Families of Star-Telegram employees may not enter.
Entry deadline: E-mails must be received by 5 p.m. Friday.
