Contest Theme: Teacher-Inspired Prints
Drumroll please… The votes are in, and we have a winner! Congrats to Christina Chang, the winner of our first-ever #MaketheCutContest on Instagram. Keep your eyes peeled for Christina’s design and another #MaketheCutContest in the New Year!
We’re bringing back our popular Make the Cut contest! Whether you’re a teacher or a teacher’s pet, this contest is for you! In honor of World Teachers’ Day on October 5th, we’re asking you to submit original teacher-themed prints from 10/5/17 through 10/18/17. Using our popular pencil-print Cotton A-Line Skirt with Pockets as inspiration (see photo below), we can’t wait to see what you come up with—from apples to abacuses, we want to see all the prints.
Share Your Idea on Social for a Chance to Win
All you need to do is post your print on Instagram or Twitter with #MaketheCutContest and @ModCloth in the caption or Tweet. One grand prize winner will receive a $500 gift certificate to ModCloth, and we will make their print! Plus, three lucky finalists each get $100 gift certificates. What are you waiting for? Put on your teacher hat and get started!
The ‘Prints-iples’ of the Contest
10/5/17-10/18/17: Submissions are open.
10/24/17-10/26/17: The ModCloth Instagram and Twitter social communities will vote on the finalists.
10/30/17: On or around the end of the month, we’ll announce the grand-prize winner.
What: Share a picture of your original print on Instagram or Twitter with #MaketheCutContest and @ModCloth in the caption. The ModCloth team will narrow your submissions down to four finalists, and the ModCloth community (you!) will vote on the winner.
Win: One grand prize winner receives a $500 ModCloth gift certificate, and we will make their print! Three finalists each get $100 gift certificates.
The Fine Print
Q: Do I have to be a teacher or designer?
A: No! Anyone can enter, you just have to be 18+ years old and living in the US.
Q: Is it required to buy a ModCloth item?
A: Nope. No purchase necessary to enter.
Q: What will the final garment look like?
A: It will be the same silhouette as our pencil-print Cotton A-Line Skirt with Pockets.
Q: Who chooses the winner?
A: A #TeamModcloth committee of buyers and designers will choose four finalists, and then the final winner will be picked by you.
Q: What should the pic or video be?
A: Get creative! It can be a photograph, drawing/sketch/painting, craft project, or a digitally generated graphic—something that gives us an idea of how we can bring your inspo to life! By submitting your design, you’re verifying that ModCloth has the legal rights to reproduce the design. And this may sounds obvious, but this needs to be your original design—not someone else’s.
Q: If I win, will the print on the skirt be exactly like my winning design?
A: Your design will be an inspiration, that we will interpret on the print, so it won’t be exactly the same.
Q: Do I get the skirt if I win?
A: You can purchase the skirt with the gift certificate you receive; however, we can’t guarantee that the skirt will be in stock or available. (Your winning design will be so awesome, it will probably fly off the shelves!)
Q: What if I don’t have social media?
A: To enter the contest, you must have a personal Instagram or Twitter account and an email address.
