WooHoo! We’re at the halfway point for the first Zazzle contest and it’s been awesome to see some of the great designs that have been submitted thus far. A few of you have asked some good questions and we’ve included the responses below.
Question: Can I submit more than one design? What happens if I submit multiple designs?
- Z: You may submit multiple designs but only the first design you enter is eligible to win the contest. The other designs you enter are not official entries and cannot win the contest regardless of their rating, views, sales, etc. In addition, you may only enter one official entry per user so if you have multiple galleries on Zazzle, only your first entry is eligible to win.
Question: Can I submit different product types, i.e. a t-shirt and a mug?
- Z: Only t-shirts are eligible to win the prize. In addition, please do not submit the same design on multiple products. This will not improve your chances of winning.
Question: Can I submit designs that I published before the contest began? If so, how will the voting/rating/sales/etc. from before the contest impact the winner selection?
- Z: You may submit designs that were published before the contest began, all you need to do is add the tag “EarthDayContest2007″ to the product. However, we will only be counting the rating, views, sales, etc. from from the contest began (April 4th) to determine the top 25 entries and the winner.
Question: Can I win if I’m not in the US?
- Z: We absolutely accept and appreciate all entries from *around the world* in celebration of the Earth. In addition, all submissions will be included in the Earth Day submission pool. However, only entries from US residents will be eligible for winning the contest prize due to legal restrictions on running a contest with a prize. We’re exploring ways to open this up and we’ll keep you posted!
