Altenew Video Challenge Winner!

by Tasnim

We know you have been waiting patiently for this day. For the past few days, the Altenew team has been busy evaluating your awesome video entries. We appreciate all the entries and were amazed by the impressive talent of the Altenew community. We want to give a special shout-out to our Marketing Lead, May Sukyong Park for organizing this video challenge.

The winner of the $100 gift certificate is:

Pia Larsen

ARVE Error: need id and provider


All the videos were judged based on the following qualities:

  • Originality of Project (uniqueness)
  • Creativity of Project (innovative use of techniques, inspirational)
  • Quality of Presentation (strong introduction/closing, images are clear, sequence is clear and engages the viewer)
  • Delivery of Presentation (instruction is easy to understand, audio is clear or subtitles are prominent/readable)
  • Followed the rules of the competition (video was 3-7 min, Altenew products was focus of project, video was linked back to Altenew challenge)

Originally we had announced that we would feature four winning videos, but narrowing down the choices to simply four was very difficult. Instead we decided to have three categories with three winning videos in each category.

Best Presentation

Nicole Picadura (#2)

Nicole #2

We thought the presentation was great, and Nicole's instruction kept us engaged throughout the video.

Therese Calvird (#20)

We loved the pace of this video. The instructions were well articulated and the video quality was amazing. We were pleasantly surprise to discover that this was Valeria's first attempt at making a video tutorial! Well done, Valeria! We look forward to see more of your videos.


Most Creative Projects

These three videos are the most unique in terms of creative use of products, creative design, and creative technique.

We fell in love with the “squishy” glitter pouches! We are glad that Pia was able to transform a childhood memory into a creative interactive card.

Pia Larsen (#10)

The unique design and the choice of colors really drew us to this card. In addition to being very creative, both her videos had amazing presentation and great quality.

We love to see our products used in a variety of projects, and this amazing canvas art was a winner at first sight! We loved everything about this video, especially the creative introduction.

We loved the water colored Painted flowers and the monochromatic color scheme in this card. But best of all, we loved the quick pace and clear instructions in this video tutorial!

 We love the layered elements in this amazing card.  An overall beautiful card and great presentation.

Last but not least, we wanted to give a shout out to the following three amazing entries. The projects/video tutorials were great, but unfortunately the length of the videos exceeded the maximum limit of the challenge:

Keren Baker (#26)


Beautiful Tag!

Elena Morgun (#32)


Stunning Layout!!

Creative use of fabric!

Fabulous entries!!
I was going to give you an entry…honestly I was but just before my holidays I went to do so, got into it…did a whole video only to discover my storage was full and so no video, then we were off and I couldn’t get one done but I had a great time going over some of the videos and will continue to watch the rest of the entries.
