The project we have to show, does it have to be new and unpublished? Sincerely, Baerbel Born, Germany


What is the term? The post says Jan - Apr 2013.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

Hi Trina- thanks for pointing that out! It's been fixed. The term will be from September 2013- January 2014.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

Baerbel- it doesn't have to be new- we just want to see some samples of your work.

Sarah Webb

How many projects are you wanting for the term (one per week, one per month...) TIA!

Sharon Young

On the stepped out project - does it need to include photos? Are you wanting video?


Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

@Sarah Webb- it's usually two per month.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

@Sharon Young- If you can include photos, that would be great! We also accept video submissions.


I'm from Brazil and would love to apply projects in this call, can I?

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

@Rommel - yes, of course!

Jen Osborn

So excited to apply!
Thank you for the opportunity :)

Ujjwal Goel

Hi, I would love to apply but I do not have a twitter account. Is it compulsion to have one?

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

@ Ujjwal - no, you don't need to have a twitter account:)

Ujjwal Goel

Thank you :)

I submitted my application yesterday :)


Thanks even I don't have a Twitter Account. I've liked/ followed Facebook and Pinterest.


Hi I'm trying to send my application via mail but it keeps on getting rejected. Did anyone else face this issue?


At last I was able to send the application. It was an issue of limited space. I had to reduce the number of photos I'd submitted on my project.
