It was a valiant battle right down to the wire, but with around 400 votes, Jay was our clear winner. Congratulations, Jay. Jay brought those mailboxes with him from his New York apartment building and we think it was a very clever re-use for them. Maybe he’ll use his $500 gift certificate to get a really cool piece of vintage Egyptian Iron to put on the wall behind it. We look forward to seeing you in the store soon, Jay.
This contest was so much fun that we will definitely be doing another. Perhaps in the Fall? If you have suggestions or ideas, please let us know.
After seeing the many, many entries in the “That’s so Potted” Contest, we are down to the final 10. We’ve learned a lot about how to have a contest and we thank all of you for your patience in helping us figure it all out. We hope to do it again in the future and are open to any suggestions you have to help streamline the process. We’d also like to congratulate Joy Feuer and Soledad Lunongo for winning for Week 5. In case you hadn’t noticed, we decided to let the top two vote-getters for each week compete for the final prize so that’s why we have 10 finalists.
Let the final voting begin!
Here’s how it’s going to work…you can VOTE ONLY ONCE, period. The photo that has the most votes as of 6pm Thursday 6/9 is the winner of the $500 gift certificate.
So, (drum roll please), here are your SEMI FINALISTS:
Wow. With over 100 entries, the “That’s so Potted” Contest has been a huge success. This final week is going to be the hardest with 44 entries. It’s going to be difficult to vote for only one.
Here is Week Four’s winner, Jay Burns, with over 500 votes…
Congratulations, Jay. Good luck in the finals.
And here are the Week Five entries…
Remember, you can vote once per day and voting closes at 6pm on Thursday June 2nd.Â Then on June 3rd, voting will commence for the 6 finalists and the Grand Prize Winner will be announced June 10th.Â Good luck, everyone!
Week Four of the “That’s so Potted” Contest is now open for voting. Remember, voting closes for Week Four on Thursday May 26th at 6pm. Also, LAST DAY TO SUBMIT ALL ENTRIES IS WEDNESDAY MAY 25TH AT 6PM.
Congratulations to our Week Three winner, Keith Miller, whose entry is shown here.
Week Four Entries are below:Â (poll is at the bottom…you can vote once each day)
This contest has been so great. Thanks to all of you for sending in such fabulous plantings. For future entries, remember…good photography really helps so try to think about how you’re shooting as well as what you’re shooting.
Big congratulations to this week’s winner…Jane Drew! Here is her submission…
It was a close contest that went right down to the wire and apparently the instructions weren’t clear that voting ended at 6pm on Thursday so voting continued and Nikki Caballaro then won. So, in the interest of fairness, we are declaring two finalists for Week Two.
Here are the Week Three Entries:
REMEMBER…YOU HAVE UNTIL 6PM ON THURSDAY 5/19 TO VOTE.
So the contest has been a huge success. We have had so many entries that we are going to have to increase the number we vote on each week or we’ll be doing this until Christmas.Â And remember, only one entry per person (sorry we weren’t clearer about that before).
First off, we’d like to congratulate our Week One Finalist…John Kennedy.
