our next photo contest begins tomorrow! :)

We will be running another photo contest throughout August!  The past two photo contests have been awesome and we are beyond excited to see what you mamas and daddies send in this time!!  It is so special to us to see twinkie tush diapers in action, to see the amazing cuties who wear them, and to see the creativity and love that you put into photographing them!

Here are the photo contest details:

The contest will be open for submissions from tomorrow, 8/1, through 8/28 - that gives you 4 weeks to snap your pics and get them in to us. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 31st, at 10pm EST.  Please read below for important details on how to win.  There will be a first place and two second place winners as follows:

- First place takes home a free custom twinkie tush diaper of their choice (based on availability of desired fabric, and SYOF is an option as well). Shipping of the diaper is also free.

- Second place winners will secure a regularly priced custom slot with free shipping :)
Please note that all of these custom diapers will ship 4-6 weeks after orders are placed.

So here's the process:

Submit a photo of your little one(s) in a twinkie tush diaper or twinkie tush wool. Hair clips and headbands by Hello Charlotte James for twinkie tush, twinkie tush/Hazelbee dress collaborations and/or T shirts by Peanut & Pumpkin for twinkie tush are of course welcome to be part of the photos, however a twinkie tush diaper or twinkie tush woolies must be featured.

Feel free to be as creative as possible - extra consideration will be given for creativity! (Try to play off the "theme" of your diaper or woolies - you can use accessories and props to really amp it up - a guitar, an alien toy, a bouquet of flowers....) A simple approach is fine as well - creativity is just one of the things that will be considered.

Photos can be sent to twinkietush@gmail.com. Please type PHOTO CONTEST in the subject field. By submitting a photo you are giving twinkie tush permission to use your photo to promote twinkie tush diapers and/or twinkie tush wool on this blog, the twinkie tush shop on Hyena Cart, and the twinkie tush facebook page.

After emailing your photo to twinkietush@gmail.com you may also upload your photo to our facebook page if you choose. That is totally up to you and is *not* required to be entered in the contest. However, emailing your photo to twinkietush@gmail.com *is* required to be entered.

Submissions will be closed on Sunday 8/28/11 at 11:59pm EST. On Monday 8/29 we will upload all submissions to a photo album on the main twinkie tush facebook page called "August 2011 photo contest!" At that point, the contest really gets exciting!

First place will be awarded to the photo *in the "August 2011 photo contest" album* that we feel best reflects the spirit of twinkie tush and the spirit of the individual diaper(s) pictured. Creativity, photo composition, brand reflection and of course FUN are some of the things that will be considered. :)  Mike and I will choose the first place winner, and we will announce the winner at 10pm EST on Wednesday 8/31.

Second place awards will go to the two photos in the "August 2011 photo contest" album that receive the most "likes".  Please note that "likes" on photos outside of the specified album will not count as votes for that photo.  You, and your friends and family, may "like" multiple photos if you choose (you don't have to pick just one).  Comments are welcome of course, but will not count towards a photo's "tally".  Since it is possible to "like" and then "unlike" something on facebook, we will go with the count as it is at exactly 10pm EST on Wednesday 8/31.  

An important note: you cannot win both first and second place ;)  While the number of "likes" a photo has will neither ensure a first place win nor preclude it from taking said prize, fan feedback is something that Mike and I may take into consideration to at least some extent in making our decision on a first place winner.  In the event that we choose one of the 2 "highest likes" photos for first place, that photo is no longer eligible to take a second place win.  In other words if photo A has the highest number with 200 likes, photo B has 199 likes, and photo C has 198 likes, and we choose photo B as our first place winner, second place awards go to photos A and C.  Please feel free to ask questions about this if it is at all unclear! :)

Please note that you may enter only ONE photo per household for this contest. Also note that photos must clearly show your twinkie tush diaper(s) and/or twinkie tush wool and must not be offensive in any way (obviously ;).  Please send full size or web adjusted images rather than "email" or "thumbnail" sizes.  

If there is a problem with your submission you will receive an email response with suggestions on how to resubmit if applicable. If your submission is accepted you will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within 48 hours please email again to confirm receipt, in case for some reason your initial email did not come through successfully.

We are really excited to see what you all come up with!  Thanks in advance for participating in what we hope will be a fun and fabulous event!! :)
