The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!
ModCloth’s ever-popular Name It & Win It Contest is back, in a new and exciting ModMobile edition! You can play for a chance to win by following these simple steps:
1. If you do not already receive ModMobile texts, sign up now.
2. Wait for a text from us! It will come sometime today (Wednesday, March 3rd), and ask permission for us to send you an email containing a photo of the item that needs a name. Text YES to allow us to send you the email.
3. You will receive the email of the image within 30 minutes. Brainstorm some names for the item, then pick your favorite!
4. Reply to the last ModMobile text message with your contest submission. You may text one message only, with one name only. You must reply by today, March 3rd, at midnight EST. Submissions on the blog will not be considered.
5. Sit back, relax, and wait for a text from us announcing the contest winner (hopefully you)! Happy naming!

Congratulations to Allison, who made us LOL with her entry, I’m Beginning to Tree the Light. Thank you to all who participated!
I have an older phone that doesn’t accept pictures (horrible, I know!). How can I play?
No worries! We will actually be sending the image to your email address. All you have to do is text “YES” when prompted (see steps 2 and 3)
Sad news for those who don’t have cell phones. 🙁 I know, I’m in the minority! lol
Oh bummer. I dont have a cell phone. There is no way to participate without one?
My plan has no texting! I always feel like I’m in the minority, haha
Melissa and Anjo,
Bummer! Sorry about that. Unfortunately, you must have text message capabilities to participate in this particular contest. But don’t worry; there will be more contests on the blog in the future! So hang in there, and keep checking back! 🙂
Is the competition open for US residents only? I have some great name ideas 🙂
Why do the contest through texting if you have to use email anyways? That seems….odd. I don’t really care for this.
Probably using email to send the image because some people get charged extra if an image is sent to their phones. And, if you don’t have an IPhone or something like it, you wouldn’t be able to see the picture that well.
Is there a cutoff time to sign up today? I signed up a while ago, but I never receive texts. So I just did again!
Hi Michelle! It is not too late. After you submit your information, you should get a confirmation text message asking you to opt in. Be sure you text “YES” back when you are prompted.
If you don’t receive a message, or are still having trouble, let us know and we will send you more info!
For some reason I’m not getting the opt-in message. =(
I too wish I could participate but I don’t text. Oh well. Fun contest idea, though.
Speaking of contests, I was wondering when the winners of the Olympics one will be announced. I’m looking forward to seeing the winning entries!
The winners for the Olympic Styleboard contest will be announced on Monday! (it turns out going through 1300 entries takes a bit of time). Stay tuned!
I just signed up for the ModMobile texts, and after i said yes, the text message after it accidentally got deleted before i got a chance to read it. Will you send it to me again please?
Shame this is only open to US and Canadian residents… I have lots of ideas!
I said yes to the message and got the reply but still haven’t recieved the e-mail with the picture. This was hours ago!
The image is sent to your email. Check that! Then, text back your entry (see steps 3 and 4).
I’ve texted my idea a variety of times and ways but I keep getting this text back “We are sorry, but that keyword was not understood.”
Any ideas on what i’m doing wrong so i can fix it?
yeah i am having the same problems briar
Hi Briar and Hannah,
Sorry you are having trouble! Please email your problems to email@example.com for more help.
I never got the email. Should I resend the “yes” message?
I’m not getting the text to opt-in 🙁
Hey Katie & Carolyn,
You guys can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org as well & I’ll help you work it out!
I got the text message but never got the email. I checked my Spam folder as well! I’ve texted my submission but I want to get emails from you guys! Help!
Bummer for those without text messaging :(. Is there a particular reason that this competition is available only through text messaging?
Alas… at least there’s always a next time.
I got the text messages but no the email as well
You can send an email to email@example.com & we will help you work it out!
Hi Shannon C, Sophie, and Dee,
Don’t worry; Name It & Win It and other contests will still happen on the blog! This contest was specifically for our ModMobile subscribers (just like there are some contests that occur only on Twitter, etc.) So don’t feel too left out; there are many more contests coming your way in the future! 🙂
I have waited over 30 minutes and still no email 🙁
Is there only going to be this one item for name it and win it, or is this going on for multiple days?
Already sent my name earlier today, hope you guys love it & choose it, too!
I signed up, got the text, replied yes, but haven’t gotten an email yet…..
I texted back YES and I never got an email… 🙁
I have a really cute name, but when I text, I get the error message that the key work is not recognized! Grr…
truthfully, this all sounds like too much work… also I am another one who doesn’t have texting in my plan. *sigh* I love the name it and win it contests too…
Never got a text beyond the initial “welcome to mod mobile”. 🙁 I had an AWESOME name, too! Sounds like this contest had lots of problems.
This worked out perfectly and simply for me! Just saying something positive.
Thank you to all 1,768 people who participated in this contest!We’ve received so many awesome names…picking just one won’t be easy! We will announce the lucky winner (via text message) on Monday!
Thanks again for being the smartest, most creative bunch of people ever!
SHOOT!!! I missed it!!! Do you do this contest often?!? I’d love to participate!
Also, I love all your stuff and your story 🙂
I got the text at 9:30 am, but I never got an email 🙁 what’s up with that! sad day.
i thought of a great name but im in europe.i felt like sharing it though the is lamp-scape!
Such an awesome contest idea. I didn’t have any problems with the texts or e-mails.
I love that you guys give the customers a chance to be a part of the designs and products on your site, it makes it feel like we’re an awesome modcloth community!
I was very excited when i got this text, but i hadn’t gotten an e-mail AT ALL. I checked at about 9:00pm after i opted in at about 3:00pm. I was very disappointed. I think the contest was very creative and would’ve been a huge success with me… had it worked.
