Your design must relate to one of the following themes and your entry must include a description as to how the design will relate to the theme.

  • Garden Paradise
  • Candy Land
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Dressed to the nines
  • Atlantis
  • Let’s Go “Green”  (environmental Green)
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Space- The final Frontier

While the designs do not have to be literal, contestants should use the themes as a basis for inspiration. A viewer must be able to identify the links between the theme and the elements used in the setting. 

You must submit  your application by 12 midnight (EST) on Feb 28, 2014. Only eight (8) table designs will be entered into the competition and so the first eight received will be chosen. We also reserve the right to cancel the competition if not enough entries are received.

You will be given three weeks to finalise and do a mock-up of your design.  A high resolution photograph must be taken of the table setting design and sent by email to by latest 12 midnight (EST)  on March 28, 2014. The photo will be uploaded to the Jamaica Epicurean Escape Facebook page.  Public voting will begin on Facebook on April 1, 2014.  These votes will go towards the points that will determine the Best of Show winner who will be announced at the event on May 25, 2014.  Public voting will end at midnight April 30, 2014.  

You (and your team if applicable) will be required to set up your entered design at the event on Saturday May 24, 2014.  You will be responsible for your transportation to and from the event as well as any necessary accommodation.
