The quality of entries this year was astounding! The results were the closest they've been in the 9 years we've held The Tie Dye Cup. Without further ado, here are the People’s Choice top 5:

3)      Scott Youngbergscott.jpg

4)      Anonymous (DYE-A-RRHEA)randall-smaller.jpg

5)      Steve Andersonsteve-anderson-smaller.jpg



Judges’ choice was equally close. Our judges took a long time to whittle down the top 10, and then even more time to come together on a top 5. Truly, each entry submitted could have made it into the top 5.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the 9th Annual Colorado Tie Dye Cup! We can't wait to see what next year brings!

Because it was so difficult to judge this year (The judges asked if they could give everyone a first place!) there may be some changes to next years format, for example introducing categories where they can give multiple people a first place.  


Again, Thank you for entering and participating, and we'll see you next year!
