Special exhibition competition “Hats off to hats!”
Pull original hat creations out of your hat and win
20 October – 16 December 2018
A hat is more than a head covering. It is more of an eye-catcher for an outfit, drawing attention as desired. Anyone wearing a hat is usually trying to stand out from the crowd. And that’s exactly the focus of our competition held as part of the special exhibition Hats off to hats! We are looking for the most unusual, adventurous, or extravagant hat creations.
Come throw your hat in the ring
Those interested in participating in the competition will receive the necessary hat free of charge from the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel starting 20 October 2018. It’s up to participants to decide which means and accessories will be used to produce a unique creation. Only the deadline for submission is set in stone. It has to be turned in no later than Sunday, 16 December 2018.
Hang your hat with us for a while
All hat creations will be put out in our display window from 26 January to 17 February 2019 and judged by the public online. The creation that garners the most votes wins. The competition hat exhibition will remain in the display window until 24 March 2019.
No cash will be paid out. The competition prize cannot be exchanged. There will be no correspondence concerning the competition. Legal recourse is barred. All winners will be personally informed. Employees of the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel and their family members do not qualify to participate. All participants will be personally informed of the competition results by 17 March 2019. Submitted hat creations remain the property of the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel until voting is concluded.
