Judges

Judging Format:

Designers on Project Run & Play have been judged in different ways through the years.  The new judging format will be as follows:

1/3 score = public voting
1/3 score = panel of past Project Run & Play designers
1/3 score = celebrity guest judge of the week

The hope is for this new scenario to cast light on the quality of the designer's work rather than their popularity.  This will hopefully ensure a positive experience for everyone, and the prizes awarded fairly on merit, rather than following size.

Celebrity Judges:

Meet the celebrity guest judges for Season 19!  It's a great honor to have these superstars in the Australian sewing community evaluating the designers' creations.


Megan Nielsen designs mega popular patterns for women and children too.  We're so grateful she agreed to help us out this Season again!  If you've ever sewn a Megan Nielsen pattern, then you know what a professional she is, and what a great privilege for Project Run & Play to have her review the designer looks.  Be sure to head over to Megan Nielsen for sewing inspiration, tutorials, patterns, tips,  inspiration and more!  Oh, and be sure to follow Megan Nielsen on Instagram for contemporary wardrobe essentials for you and your child!


Sophie from Ada Spragg is a sewing superstar.  She sews an enviable handmade wardrobe and knows her sewing stuff!  Of course she's from the Land Down Under and our designers are so excited for her to evaluate their work.  For daily wardrobe inspiration for YOURSELF, be sure to follow her on Instagram.


Ellie Whittaker is on a mission to fill the world with Australian patterns full of wonder, colour and whimsy.  Inspired by childhood nostalgia, literature and popular references Ellie often works with bright colours, bold styles and oversized designs and has developed widespread repute for her aesthetic.  It's really a huge honor to have her as a celebrity guest judge for Season 19!  You can be inspired yourself by browsing her site, Ellie Whittaker Studio.  And of course, following her on Instagram is a must!

The judging format is as follows:

1/3 score = celebrity guest judge of the week
1/3 score = public voting


This scenario casts light on the quality of the designer's work rather than their popularity.  This format has ensured a positive experience for everyone in the past few Seasons, and the prizes awarded fairly on merit, rather than size of following.


Hayley comes to us from Welcome to the Mouse House.  She was a designer on Season 5 and Mini Season 1.  The Janie Dress and the Sydney Pinafore are her genius patterns, and can be found in the Project Run & Play shop!  It's a true honor to have Hayley make time in her busy life (follow along on Instagram!) for Project Run & Play.


Kelly comes to us from Handmade Boy.  She was a designer on Season 17 and is pretty much the uncontested boy sewing expert!  You can find her on Instagram here.  One thing Kelly makes perfectly clear is that boy sewing can be FUN.  It's so exciting to have her on the panel of judges for 2019.


Celina comes to us from Petit A Petit + Family.  She was a designer on Season 9 and proved that it pays to stay true to your own style every time!  The Tip Top Dress &  TunicAzur Reversible Swimsuit, and Loverall Dungarees patterns are all her designs and can be found in the Project Run & Play shop.  You can follow Celina's mega artistic account on Instagram.  It's incredible to have her make time in her busy life for Project Run & Play.


It's such an honor to have these talented ladies giving their time and effort on the behalf of Project Run & Play.  Please thank them by following them on social media, and reading and commenting on their blogs!
