Doors must be ready for judging by Monday, December 4th and email reminder will be sent on December 1st. Judging will take place throughout the week, please do not take off your door decorations until judging is finished.  We cannot return to see doors if they have not been completed on time (December 4th).

Winners will be contacted by phone and email after the judging is completed.  All participants receive a small gift for entering the contest.  Ten (10) winners will be selected based on various categories such as colorful, creative, beautiful, best theme, patriotic, craftsmanship, old-fashioned, unusual, original, and child creation.  You do not need to choose a specific category when registering unless you are entering the “Child Creation” (a door that is completely created and constructed by a child/children). Participants who live in a multi-family/ apt. homes must decorate a door that judges can access at any time (i.e. main door must be unlocked to get into lobby to see a specific door) to leave an entry gift, take photos and see the decorations up close.
