    This should be interesting. OK to enter more than one design?

      Hi Carl, yes it is OK to enter more than one design. We love to see what our customers create! The only catch is that you can’t win more than one prize…say if you win 1st place you wouldn’t be able to win 2nd or 3rd place prizes. Good luck!

    Building a new clock for this as we speak. It’s great that we can enter more than one and previously made clocks. More than the chance to win is the viewing of others work and ideas. I have used Klockit parts since last century over 2 decades ago, ya I’m old, so the rest of you prepare to lose to an old man. Bwa haha!

      Your comment made our Monday, Bob! Yes, please enter as many clocks as you would like. We loved your work in the past and are definitely looking forward to seeing what your new clock project is all about. P.S. ‘Old’ is just a three-letter word in our books 🙂 Good luck!

    I added a clock yesturday (sunday 5/12/13). I have a few more Im going to add. I love designing and building clocks. I started building clocks about 7 months ago. It all started when I made a clock for myself and people saw it and asked if id build them one and thats when Jeremiah Clock Designs was born. Thanks Klockit for everything you do for us clock makers! I just wish my 24′ tall outdoor tower clock was close to completion for this contest but thats ok. Its going to be a few months before its complete.
    Thanks again,

      Hi Calvin – Yes, it would be eligible as long as you send in a picture of the clock and the story behind it.
