Gingerbread houses 2017
30 November 2017 - 7 January 2018
At ArkDes, you can visit a different and aromatic exhibition of imaginative gingerbread houses. Everyone is welcome to take part in the competition and in the exhibition.
Visit the exhibition
The theme of ArkDes’ Gingerbread House competition 2017 is Boundless. Challenge your idea of what a gingerbread house is and can be. We look forward to boundless ideas and constructions without confines, which will comprise a boundlessly creative gingerbread house exhibition!
A jury will select two winners in each category: one from the digital entries and one from the displayed entries at ArkDes. The jury will assess the entries on the basis of the criteria of colour and shape, edibility, construction and how well the creation fits in with the theme. A prize will also be given to the “people’s favourite” which got the most votes from the general public.
According to the competition rules, the house’s base plate may be maximum 50 x 50 cm. The house must not extend beyond these measurements at any point and it must only contain edible ingredients. However, the base plate does not need to be edible.
The contestants will be divided up into three categories:
• Architects, designers and bakers
• Up to 12 years old
• Everyone else who bakes
Entry submission weekend
Physical entries are to be submitted on 24-26 November at ArkDes, Skeppsholmen, during the museum’s regular opening hours. You do not need to register in advance that you are going to participate.
