“That’s So Potted Contest” Spring 2012

Monday, April 9th, 2012

It’s contest time again here at Potted and we are very excited to see what exciting container plantings you all are going to come up with for this Spring’s “That’s So Potted Contest.” As before, the winner will receive a $500 shopping spree at Potted and because we have an online store as well as our Los Angeles location, the prize is open to anyone in the Continental US.

Here’s basically how the contest will work…
Each Friday starting April 27th, that week’s entries will be compiled into a posting where people can vote for their favorite entry. Popular vote wins the round. Each weekly round winner will be eligible for the final round which determines the Grand Prize $500 gift certificate to Potted. There will be 4 rounds and the final round with the winner being announced on June 1st.

So please send us your whimsical photos…

Your sophisticated photos…

Or your downright silly ones.

Here are all the rules and deadlines:

1. Take a photo of your most creative container planting. You must have created the planting yourself and have the rights to submit any pictures. ONLY ONE SUBMISSION PER PERSON FOR THE ENTIRE CONTEST. No purchase is necessary to enter or win. This contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law. By entering you agree to all rules and decisions of the contest as decided by Potted and agree to have your photo and name used in any promotions for this or future contests without claims to royalties or remunerations for such use.

2. Email your photo to A medium resolution is preferred. No thumbnail photos. Potted reserves the right to choose not to run a photo in the contest for any reason and will not run more than 20 photos each week (which means entering in an earlier week is better since the amount of entries increases every week).

(Note: May 24th is the last day to submit a photo to the contest)

3. Send your friends to our blog to vote. ONLY ONE VOTE PER DAY PER IP ADDRESS CAN BE CAST. Anyone caught cheating or trying to rig votes will be disqualified. Voting begins at 8am PST each Friday morning and ENDS AT 6PM PST THE FOLLOWING THURSDAY. Voting for the Final will begin May 25th and end at 6pm PST on May 31st with the winner being announced on June 1st.

4. You don’t need to live in the Los Angeles area to participate. We ship throughout the Continental United States and anyone who lives there is eligible to enter and win.

SO GET PLANTING!!! Remember Week One Deadline is April 26th. It could be you who walks away with the $500 Shopping Spree at Potted.
