Submit photos December 1-14.
Voting opens December 15-22.

Get creative this winter! Build something awesome with gingerbread (and gumdrops, and candy, and icing…)

This year’s Gingerbread House Contest will take place online. On the bright side, this means you can eat your gingerbread creations after you finish—just make sure to take photos first!


No pick-up/drop-off rules this year—just send us a photo!

  • Creations must be constructed primarily of edible materials and icing.
  • YES! You can use store-bought gingerbread kits.
  • Bases for the projects must not exceed 24 inches by 24 inches.



Voting will take place online, December 15-22. Once voting opens, you’ll be able to vote on this page.

We’ll also post a link on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
