The “That’s so Potted” Contest

Show us your favorite container planting and you could win a $500 Shopping Spree at Potted.

If you shop at Potted, you know how much we love to plant containers. Well we know what we can do but we thought wouldn’t it be cool to see what you all came up with. So we are holding our first contest ever. Here’s how it’s going to work:

1. Take a photo of your favorite container planting. It could be anything…a pot, a shoe, your desk drawer. The only rule is that it be in a container and have at least one plant (no one’s saying anything about what else it can have) and you need to have created it. Make sure to show the whole container in your photo. Photos must be your own originals…no copy written photos without permission.

2. Email us your photos (  LAST DAY TO SUBMIT PHOTOS IS WEDNESDAY MAY 25TH AT 6PM. Each Friday on our Blog we will have that week’s photos where you can send your friends TO VOTE FOR YOUR PHOTO. Popular vote wins so tell the world. VOTING ENDS EACH WEEK ON THURSDAY AT 6PM FOR THE WEEK BEFORE. Each week’s winner (5 total) will be entered into the final contest which will be on June 3rd and the winner of the $500 Grand Prize will be announced on June 10th.

3. You don’t need to live in the Los Angeles Area to participate. We ship throughout the continental US so anywhere is fair game to claim the prize.

So get planting and send us your photos!

    Just to clarify, the photo must be original, but the planting can be someone elses? Can we can enter more than one photo?

  2. annette says:

    Good question…the photo AND the planting should be original and only one entry per person. Thanks for helping us clarify.

  3. […] After our trip to the Long Beach Flea Market last Sunday, we thought we’d post a few photos of what we actually did with some of the things we saw there that inspired us. And how perfect that these photos might also give you all ideas on things you could create for our “That’s so Potted” Contest. […]

    I am sorry, but I have a question. If you are picking one entry per week, does one entry per person apply for the entire contest, or can we send one per week. Thanks.

  5. annette says:

    Sorry, Daisy, it’s just one entry per person. We will pick one winner per week and then do the final voting from those winners for the actual prize winner. This way no one can have more than one entry in the final voting.

    Hi! Any requirements/recommendations for photo size/resolution/file size on our entry photo? Thanks!
