Tallulah Speed's blog..
I’m thrilled to announce that long-term partner of IDM and head of our US branch, Denise Keane-Gillette, has acquired Irish Dance Magazine and will be taking over as editor as of now. Denise has been working with IDM for years and years and is the perfect choice to take over this role. I am so grateful for all the help she has given me over this brief time I have been editor, and wish her the best of luck.
If you have any questions or comments, Denise’s username is Denise Keane-Gillette. I know you’ll make her as welcome as you did me!
I’d like to thank all of you so much for making me feel so instantly at home on ID.com – I’ve had a wonderful time and it’s all been down to you guys!
Lots of love,
Well well! I have been absolutely beside myself with the amount of amazing competitions we have been wrapping up of late! The standard of all the artwork has been so staggering high that we’re seriously considering renaming the magazine “Irish dancing and designing magazine!”
Good luck all!
It’s been a busy time at IDM Towers as we try and juggle working on the best magazine in the world with bulk-buying woolly hats and scarves and mittens for the ensuing winter!

We were flooded with entries, and the standard was really high, with the judging panel going absolutely mad with dresslust! It was an INCREDIBLY close race, and every single people who entered should feel so proud of themselves.

I’m afraid to say that due to illness within our little team, putting up the dresses for voting has been delayed. We feel terrible about it but we are working our little socks off to get them on the site. They should be up tomorrow.
I am thrilled to announce that we have another NEW badge up for grabs: It's the 2010 Australian Nationals badge! How good is that!? Thanks to Naomi_Dancer for the inspiration, who is, incidentially the first and thusfar only user with the badge!!
This fine badge takes its inspiration from the AIDA logo (ok, it is the AIDA logo), and carries a cool 300 points for people who attended!
Just message me if you attended, and I'll add your badge!
So in other news, the design a dress competition is over, but don’t put away your pencils: the IDTANA logo competition has JUST BEGUN! Sunrise…sunset….
Can you believe it's the last design a dress day ALREADY!?! OMG!!!
Now don't get me wrong, we have had a whole darn host of amazing entries, but there's always room in the barrel for one or two more. So if you have your design lying about the house - it ain't gonna win you a free dress that way, sister! Take a picture of it, or scan and email it to me, email@example.com, within the next eight hours!
Over and out! x
