In July 2014, we announced a new contest: the Home + Garden Trendsetter of the Year. Designed to propel a rising home and garden talent to stardom, we encouraged lifestyle bloggers from across America to apply and tell us why they deserved to win our amazing prize package: a 3-month, multi-show contract, opportunities for media appearances, and access to thousands of potential new, online followers. Though we received countless entries, only three could move forward to the next phase of the contest.

Ursula Carmona, Dave Marciniak, and Leanne Lee are heading to the Orlando Home Show for the final portion of the competition: deciding who the true Trendsetter is. Each contestant will present their best home, garden, and DIY tips on the Fresh Ideas Stage on Sunday, October 26th. After hearing the presentations, our celebrity judges will crown the Trendsetter of the Year.

Who do you think will win? The design innovator from Painesville, Ohio? The revolutionary gardening guru from Culpeper, Virginia? Or the DIY Diva from Parkville, Missouri? Check out their presentations and watch the culmination of this exciting contest!

The Orlando Home Show takes over the Orange County Convention Center, October 24-26, 2014. Get tickets to see home and garden celebrities, and watch as a new one is created! To get a sneak peek of the trendsetter presentations, watch the videos each finalist made on our Facebook page.
