v Can you commit to a minimum 6 month position? 
v  Can you confidently work with digital images and are willing to use images provided by our generous sponsors?
v  Do you love to have fun and hang with like-minded crafters (easy-going, friendly, supportive, etc.?)
v  Do you love to create and help inspire others?
v Can you take good quality pictures of your work?
v  Can you meet a deadline?
v Remember all our challenge have sentiments
v Can you commit to a project every fortnight and commenting on entries? (Not all of them, as we have a system!)

Here is what we offer you in return at Aud Sentiments' DT
v First, a pleasant, enjoyable and supportive team environment.
v You will get digital images to work with from our lovely sponsors.
v You get to help pick winners
