Maker Challenge, Creative Prompts

When you challenge your imagination, creativity emerges. We encourage our community to use these challenges to think outside of their comfort zone and find inspiration that may otherwise have been missed. Pieces can be as literal or as loose as you’d like as long as the theme inspires you!

How to Participate:

  • Create a piece inspired by each theme.
  • List the item in your goimagine shop.
  • Click submit button at the bottom of this page to submit your product by the deadline noted in each challenge.

While we encourage you to create something new for these challenges, if you have a perfect product that fits a theme, please submit it! You can choose to enter all challenges or select the ones that appeal to you. Get the conversation going with other makers working on the same challenge by sharing progress in Maker Circle! And feel free to share with your own followers using hashtag #GImakerchallenge

To Qualify:

  • The submission listing must be “active” in your goimagine shop*
  • The “Meet the Maker” section of your shop MUST be filled out
  • How it’s made” section is encouraged, but not required.
  • Each shop may enter up to 2 products for each challenge.

What if my item sells? You can still qualify! As long as the item remains in “active” status, it can be judged by the goimagine team.


All submissions will be judged by the goimagine team and the top six will be selected for a public vote. The voting window will open shortly after submissions close and will last 1 week. The top two submissions will be featured on goimagine and through social media.

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

  • Winner: 3 months free subscription fees.
  • Finalist: 1 month free subscription fee.

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists and it's time to put that inspiration in the spotlight. This can be literal with symbols of nature or elements from the earth, or more of a nod to nature with natural earth tone colors and textures. For this challenge, create a piece inspired by any aspect of nature.
