    This is the second time that non US Zazzler`s are excluded from the contest. Does anyone at Zazzle consider what impact such policy has on the community of foreign Zazzler`s ?

  20. Kerry Says:

    @Martin – there are legal restrictions which make it prohibitive for Zazzle to offer the contests in other countries. There are enough complications just making it work throughout the US and territories. If it was simple to do it – they would. They are not trying to alienate anyone.

    Speaking of alienating – ONE ENTRY PER PERSON PEOPLE! Not per shop etc – per person! And just because it say’s only the first entry counts does not mean it’s ok to spam the contest with your shoes. One entry – that’s it. Period! Play fair.

    Here’s my entry:

    Good luck everyone

    I just viewed all of the pro ked entries. and while i enjoyed it and they were all wonderful to see…

    i was disappointed to see some people have submitted more than one pair in the contest..first rule of contest said….only one pair.

    I think those who ignored the rules and submitted more than one pair….in some cases many pairs….should be disqualified from the contest….

    just my thoughts… about the rest of you who only entered one pair and followed the rules…..

    how does that make you feel about our chances with only one pair?

    I am just saying….keep it fair.

    • Jamie Says:

      I totally agree! It does say “only one pair. And the first submitted, will be the only one in the contest.” So I hope the folks who entered more than one, know that….but maybe they didn’t read that far. I feel like my chances are in the hands of Zazzle, and if they like my design, awesome! If not, oh well. I’ll get ‘em next time. I read the rules about a ga-zillion times to make sure I got it right….and even tried to make my design the best I could before submission.
      Good luck to all! :D

    My entry for The PopArtDiva Gift Gallery is:

    BTW, I twittered @Zazzle and asked “is it one entry per PERSON or one entry per STORE” and was told they are counting the first entry for each account. So if you have multiple stores/accounts I assume this means you can enter once per account.

    If I’m wrong, someone please let me know.

    I had to do some thinking on this one since my carousel drawings don’t work great on shoes – decided to just use animal prints instead!

    They’re called Movie Night and will here eventually! I tagged the hi-tops for the contest, but I did them in lo-tops too … sorta wish I’d tagged the lo-tops instead … argh.
