10th Annual
Hong Kong Teddy Bear Contest

The Hong Kong teddy bear artists have been busy designing, making and creating outfits for their bears to wear in the annual contest. The entries this year showed the Hong Kong bear makers were very creative.

 

Bears and their friends were entered in 7 Categories by advanced artists to very young beginning bear makers (ages 14 and under with one 5 year old contestant). They all enjoyed completing their entries.

 

Everyone has a dream of having the winning bear. Hong Kong is a very busy city, many people work more than 10 hours a day. This does not leave much time for people to sew and make handicrafts.

 

By sponsoring this contest the citizens of Hong Kong are learning about artist bears as most think a bear is only a toy and not a work of art.

 

I teach bear making classes and even organize this yearly bear contest which is always a hard work. I often hesitated to do that, but on the other hand I told myself, I have the support from the VIPs in the bear world.

 

Our Judges send me warm emails, commenting on the Hong Kong bear makers are doing better and better each year.

Note from Gloria:

 

Dear All,
Thank you very much to the generous of Ms. Valerie, She gives us the contest page and HKTBA Winners' page every year.

Congratulations on your success. Keep up your good work!

We are looking forward to welcoming Ms. Valerie at the 11th HK Teddy Bear Prize Presentation Ceremony as she is planning to visit Hong Kong and Macau to meet the bear artists in January 2016.

2015 will be a busy year for all HKTBA members. New projects, exhibitions and lessons too.

God bless your family and you. Bless HKTBA to work better and bring more bear making lessons to schools. We received inquiries from school teachers about conducting bear-making lessons for pupils.

Wish you all have a prosperous New year.

Cheers, Gloria
