Postal Strike: Closing Date Extended

Thanks for your emails and questions about how the postal strike might affect the Couture Contest. Those of you that don't live in the UK may not have heard that postal workers are planning strikes this week and are currently dealing with a large backlog of undelivered mail. While many of your entries have arrived safely at Momiji HQ (we'll send an email to the creators of all those dolls that we've received next week) we can't stand the thought of some dolls being stranded in a sorting office somewhere. We've decided that the deadline for entries will now be 5.30pm on Monday 16th November. We can't say for sure how long the strike will impact on deliveries but hopefully those extra couple of weeks should mean that everything makes it through the system. To keep things simple we'll also accept entries to the USA address until 16th November.

Thanks so much to those have you who have take then time to deliver your dolls by hand. It's lovely to meet you and we really appreciate your dedication.

If you have any questions just let us know.

  1. I was just wondering if there was a timeline for what happens next? When will the judging be completed? When will the finalists be contacted? Have the dates for the showing at Royal/T been confirmed? I think all the entrants are waiting around with bated breath!

  2. I agree with the above I come online hoping for an update of what is going on but still nothing!

  3. Similar thoughts here. What is the timeline? I haven't received an email confirming receipt of my doll at the US address. I put a lot of work into my doll and I would like to know what is happening with the competition.
