Welcome, students of the ModCloth School of Name It & Win It. A warm welcome to any friends and family out there too. Before we cue the opening chords of “Pomp and Circumstance” and invite you all onstage, you have one last assignment, to be completed next week — our Cheers to the Future edition of Name It & Win It!
Inspired by your creative feats and adventurous spirit, next week’s Name It & Win It will not only appear on the Blog, but Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr, too! Each day’s test of wits will take place on a different platform so that you can play our beloved name game like never before.
If you’re new to our name game, this is how it works: At 7 a.m. PT on each day, we’ll show you a dress, and you’ll dream up a name for it. Five days of the week means you have five chances to Name It and Win It.
Want a head start? Study up on these rules so you can hit the ground running on Monday!
- Submissions for each day’s contest must be received by 7 p.m. PT
- Only entries left on that day’s platform will be accepted. So, on Monday (Blog day), leave your entry as a comment on the contest blog post. On Tuesday (Twitter day), blast your names over to us via a hashtagged tweet!
- Your entries don’t need to follow any theme
- You can suggest up to three names for each day’s item. No more than three, please!
- Winners will be announced on May 11 here on the ModCloth Blog, and each will receive the piece they named
- Want more info? Check out our full Name It and Win It Contest Rules and our Official Contest Rules
The Cheers to the Future tour kicks off on Monday morning, right here on the Blog. See you then!
UPDATE (5/4, 11:14 a.m.) – Oh, dear! In all our excitement about our first-ever multiplatform Name It & Win It, we missed a blunder in the above calendar graphic that mistakenly mixed up the Thursday and Friday dresses. We realize that this may have thrown a hitch in your plans if you were following this calendar, and are so very sorry! We’re extending the Day 5 submission period on Tumblr until 10 p.m. PDT to make up for this little period of confusion. We’ve updated the calendar to reflect the correct order of dresses, and hope you can forgive us for this flub!
