Good morning! :) As promised, we are holding another photo contest this month and we’d love to give you the details so you can get ready to send your entries in! Photo contests are one of our favorite things – it is amazing to see your children rocking our diapers and wool, and so awesome to watch your little ones grow from one contest to the next and of course to “meet” all the new twinkie tush kiddos! Thank you in advance for sharing your photos with us!!
Here are the photo contest details:
The contest will be open for submissions from today, 6/3, through Sunday 6/24. That gives you exactly 3 weeks to get your entries in! The winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 27th, at 10pm EST. Please read below for important details on how to win. There will be a first place and a second place winner as follows:
- First place takes home a FREE custom twinkie tush diaper of their choice (based on availability of desired fabric, and SYOF is of course an option as well). Shipping of the diaper is also free. (Please note that the custom diaper will ship 4-6 weeks after a final print decision is made or SYO fabric is received.)
- The second place winner will be awarded a one time "dibs pass" which will allow them to choose a single diaper to purchase at regular price on any one preview day between 7/4/12 and 1/4/13 without having to attend the stocking. This prize also includes free shipping! (Please note that occasionally there is a print offered that is not able to be claimed by a dibs pass, but that is rare.)
- We will also draw an additional dibs pass winner at random from all photo contest participants at the close of the contest! (This random.org dibs pass entitles the recipient to claim a diaper during previews and purchase it prior to stocking at regular price and with regular associated shipping costs.)
So now that we’ve covered prizes, here is the process:
To enter, simply 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 always 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please type PHOTO CONTEST in the subject field. By submitting a photo you are giving twinkie tush permission to use your photo to promote or represent twinkie tush diapers and/or twinkie tush wool on this blog, the twinkie tush shop on Hyena Cart, the soon to be launched twinkietush.com, twinkie tush advertisements on HC and elsewhere, and the twinkie tush facebook page. Please do not submit a photo if you do not agree to these terms. :)
Submissions will be closed on Sunday 6/24/12 at 11:59pm EST. On Monday 6/25 we will upload all submissions to a photo album on the main twinkie tush facebook page called "June 2012 photo contest!" At that point, the contest really gets exciting!
First place will be awarded to the photo *in the "June 2012 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, June 27th.
Second place will go to the photo in the "June 2012 photo contest" album that receives 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, June 27th.
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 the "highest likes" photo 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 and photo B has 199 likes, and we choose photo A as our first place winner, second place will go to photo B. If we choose photo B, or any other photo in the album, as our first place winner, second place will go to photo A. 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.
