Entrance Decor - Saturday, January 25th - 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM

 

Theme - "Black and White"

 

Entry Fee - None

 

Put together a team of yourself and up to three (3) of your friends and colleagues and design an entrance decor treatment based on this year's theme. While you can be as creative as you'd like, like any event you're limited by size and time. 

 

Four awards will be presented in this category (First Place, Second Place, Third Place and Delegates' Choice)

 

 

Table Centerpiece LIVE - Saturday, January 25th - 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM

 

Theme - Beach Party

 

Entry Fee - None

 

You and one (1) assistant work crazily against the clock to create a custom table centerpiece based on the theme of the event. But seriously.....hurry! You've only got 90 minutes to create your entry...this is a LIVE centerpiece competition.

 

Four awards will be presented in this category (First Place, Second Place, Third Place and Delegates' Choice)

 

Sculpture Competition - Saturday, January 25th, 6:00 PM to 2:00 AM 

 

Theme  - Open

 

Fee - None

 

Where would we be without the sculpture competition? You and your team of up to ten (10) people total have seven hours to complete a design from start to finish. This year the theme is left open to you, but the size has been increased to 8' by 8' by 8'. However, we have also removed the decor influence requirement, so sculptures can be made from predominantly non-round balloons if you want!

 

Awards will be presented for First Place, Second Place, Third Place and Delegates' Choice.

Foil Design Competition - Sunday, January 26th, 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Theme - Open

Fee - None

Competitors will have four hours to construct an artistic design made predominantly out of foil balloons. It can be a sculpture, an accent element or anything else as long as it's made nearly all from foils.

Awards will be presented for First Place, Second Place, Third Place and Delegates' Choice

Organic Design Competition - Sunday, January 26th, 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Theme - Open

Fee - None

Competitors will have four hours to construct an artistic design made using the organic style of decor. Again, the creation itself is open to the imagination of the artist, as long as it's made in the organic decor style

Awards will be presented for First Place, Second Place, Third Place and Delegates' Choice

Table Centerpiece DEADLINE - Wednesday, January 29th - 12:00 PM

 

Theme - TBA

 

Entry Fee - $5.00 per entry - multiple entries permitted

 

Imagine what kind of work you can come up with absolutely no time restriction...heck, you can start working on this event NOW! Just make sure it's turned in no later than noon on Wednesday the 30th. Late entries will not be accepted this year!

 

Three awards will be presented in this category (First Place, Second Place, Third Place)

 

 

The FLOATee Awards - Deadline January 10th, 2020

 

Theme - Varied

 

Entry Fee - $5.00 per submission per category

 

Our popular photo submission competition is back for 2020. This year's FLOATee challenges will involve 32 different categories that you can enter, ranging from arches to private events to techniques. And remember, all of the proceeds from entry fees to the FLOATee Awards go into the FLOAT Scholarship program, which leads to FREE registrations to FLOAT 2022.

 

One winner will be announced in each category - Winners will be announced at FLOAT's Opening Night ceremony.

 

 

 

Designer of the Year 

In 2020, anyone hoping to be awarded the title of FLOAT's Designer of the Year will have to enter at least three (3) of our five live designer competitions (entrance decor, live table centerpiece, sculpture, foil design and organic). You can pick whichever events you want to enter, and you can even enter more than three. Artists who enter more than three events will get the benefit of having their top three scores applied to the DOTY standings, with their lower score(s) being dropped.
