Read the press statement below.

Connections help us to make sense of the world.

This year, we are challenging you to create an original hat or headpiece using the concept of Connections as the starting point for your design. There are no restrictions on the materials or techniques that you can use. This is an abstract theme which can be interpreted in any number of ways – be as creative as possible!

Four winners will be chosen by a panel of expert judges who will be looking at the quality of workmanship as well as originality of design and theme interpretation.

Entries must be submitted by 11 January 2017. The winners will be notified by email no later than 20 January 2017. The winners’ names will then be announced on, in the How2hats newsletter and through social media.
