May 2017 Photo Contest!

It's that time!!  Are you ready for another twinkie tush photo contest?? :)  We can't wait to get this one running!!

Since our community has grown so much, we are going to stick to one entry per family for this one. :)

The contest will be open for submissions from tomorrow, 5/1/17, through Saturday 5/27/17.  That gives you just under 4 weeks to get your entries in, so don’t delay!  :)  The winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 31st, at 9pm EST. Please read below for important details on how to win!

We will have 3 winners for this contest!

*The second and third place winners will each receive a FREE custom item of their choice (either one diaper, one dress, one tee, one blanket, OR one pair of twinkie tush wool interlock longies or shorties). Free shipping anywhere in the world will also be included!  Winners may choose to send in their own fabric or work with us to choose an available in stock fabric for their item, if applicable.

*The first place winner will receive a $200 gift certificate to twinkietush.com!!

We will also draw an additional winner of a $25 gift certificate to twinkietush.com at random from all photo contest participants at the close of the contest!

To enter, please send one photo to photocontest@twinkietush.com, using the template below.  You MUST use this template, or your entry will not be included.

Email subject: Your full name - May 2017 Entry (eg "Gretchen Gilpin - May 2017 Entry")

The body of your email MUST contain the following information, in this order:

Your name: 
Your child's name (optional - you can certainly omit this information if you choose) :
The item or items featured in your photo: (eg "Track and Field diaper" or "Scorched Playground Tee with Night Lake shorties") - if there are several items visible in your photo, you need only mention the main/most featured item(s).

Your photo must contain an authentic twinkie tush item or items, which must be visible/prominent in the photo.  If you don't currently have a twinkie tush model in your family, you may still enter by just photographing the item itself! :)

Feel free to be as creative as possible!  (Try to play off the "theme" of your diaper/togs - 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.  Branding is also important to us!

By submitting a photo or photos you are giving twinkie tush permission to use your photo or photos to promote or represent twinkie tush diapers, twinkie tush wool interlock, twinkie togs and/or other twinkie tush products on this blog, the twinkie tush shops on Hyena Cart and Big Cartel, twinkietush.com, twinkie tush advertisements via email, on HC and elsewhere, and the twinkie tush facebook pages.  Please do not submit a photo if you do not agree to these terms. :)

Submissions will be closed on Saturday 5/27/17 at 11:59pm EST. On Monday 5/29, by mid afternoon EST, we will upload all submissions to s photo album on the main twinkie tush Facebook page.  At that point, the contest really gets exciting!

First, second and third place prizes will be awarded to the 3 photos in the contest album that we feel best reflect the spirit of twinkie tush and the spirit of the individual diaper(s), wool, and/or twinkie togs 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, second, and third place winners, and we will announce the winners at 9pm EST on Wednesday, May 31st.  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 definitely something that Mike and I will take into consideration to at least some extent in making our decision on winning photos - so make sure your family and friends know to show their support for your photo by "liking" it!

Please note that only one (1) prize will be awarded for each winning photo.  Should you collaborate with another family to enter a submission you would need to settle the allocation of the prize between yourselves in the event that you win.

Please note that photos must clearly show your twinkie tush diaper(s), twinkie tush wool, and/or twinkie togs and must not be offensive in any way (obviously). Please send high resolution images rather than "email" or "thumbnail" sizes, but please don't send extremely large images as they can be difficult for us to download when we get so many submissions.

We highly recommend making sure that you are achieving an optimal fit in your photos, so that the diaper(s) and/or togs look as intended.  Remember, as great as it is to show your creativity and have fun with the contest, when we select a first place winner we are typically looking for the best representation of our brand. :)

Please note that no third party professional photos may be entered.  Please do not submit professional photos unless you took them yourself. :)  Submissions must come directly from the parent or guardian of the child in the photograph.

Please also note that photo collages cannot be entered - only one single photograph per family may be entered.  Please do not add photo embellishments (borders, watermarks, doodles, hearts, etc.)  Remember to keep this about the photo itself - not about how you can decorate a photo after taking it.  Of course cropping and editing is fine!

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 3 business days. If you do not receive a confirmation email within that timeframe, please email again to confirm receipt, in case for some reason your initial email did not come through successfully.  (But do give us 3 business days to get back to you please! :) )

We are looking forward to your submissions! Thanks so much!! :)
