Enter Our Art of Style Contest On Pinterest! – UPDATE: CONTEST HAS ENDED!

If your wardrobe is in need of a little inspiration, then you’re in luck! Starting 8/13 at 11 a.m. PT, we’re hosting a contest on Pinterest that crosses the creative worlds of art and fashion, and will help you take your sense of style outside the box. Just create outfits based off of one or all six pieces of art in this blog post, and your stylish, art-inspired board could win you a $50 ModCloth gift certificate!

To enter, simply create a board titled “The Art of Style ModCloth Contest”, and re-pin our contest pin to your board. Next, pin the image of a piece of art that inspires you. Then, pin the ModCloth items that make up an awesome ensemble inspired by the artwork. Beneath each pin, include a small description, the hashtag #modcloth, and a hashtag of the artist’s name for reference (i.e. The print on this dress captures the palette of the painting. #janedoe #modcloth).

You can include all six works of art in your board, but please create only one outfit per piece of art. When your board is perfect, share it with us by posting it as a link in a comment on our original contest announcement pin, located in our “Design of the Times” board.

Before you begin, check the deets:

  • You must follow @ModCloth on Pinterest to enter.
  • Contest begins 8/13 at 11 a.m. PT and ends 8/17 at 4 p.m. PT.
  • The images of the six pieces of art you can pin and use as inspiration are provided below.
  • Each pin must include the hashtag #modcloth and a hashtag of the name of the artist whose artwork inspired it.
  • Only one entry board per person (that one board may contain all six pieces of artwork and corresponding garments/outfits).
  • One winner will be chosen per piece of artwork.
  • Boards will be judged based on uniqueness, creativity, ModCloth spirit, and adherence to the guidelines.

    I had already commented here with my board but it was from polyvore not pinterest because I explained to you already that pinterestwas not working for me. Now it is, so here are my boards: https://pinterest.com/aliceiswndrland/modcloth-contest/

    I love ModCloth, and I respect that you guys are busy and have a lot to focus on. But it seems like a lot of contest announcements are not posted at the otherwise stated times. It’s understandable if sometimes you have other urgent priorities. It’s just a little concerning and disappointing when we’re given promised due dates but the deadlines are missed and then posted later. It wouldn’t be an issue if this happened every once in a while but this really seems to happen a lot. :(

    I must know who wins! I’ve been checking the blog every hour. Fingers crossed!

    No winners yet? What good is it putting up an announcement time if it’s not going to be adhered to?

    • ModCloth 08/22/2012 at 5:38 pm #

      Thanks for checking in! We received so many great entries that we’re still going through them. Winners will now be posted Friday at 4pm PT. So sorry for the inconvenience!

    I asked a question four days ago and it has not been answered. Modcloth, hire some people who can actually stay active on the blog to answer questions for your customers or DON’T have a blog.

    Whoa! Really?! I won?! Sweet. How do I claim my prize certificate?
