Starting April 1st Scrap Shotz is hosting two amazing contests - HotShotz2 and HotShotz Cardz, especially for Canadians, with amazing prizes! Both contests are running simultaneously and you have to pick which one you want to enter.
The contest involves a total of 5 contest challenges. Each Sunday during the time of the contest a challenge will be issued and you will have until the Friday of that same week to upload your submission. Active board members (those with at least 25 posts to the board that week) will then get to vote on their favorites and the top 80% in each round get to move one to the next round.
To enter the contest you have to join the ScrapShotz board and between April 1 and April 4 you have to enter your best single page layout to the HotShotz2 gallery or your best card to the HotShotz Cards gallery. The really neat thing is that this doesn't have to be something new, just something not published before.
To advance in the contest you have to win the votes but you also have at least 25 meaningful posts to the board each week. With all the chatter and happenings on the board it should be no problem to fulfill that requirement.
There will be a grand prize winner and a runner up in each contest. The grand prize winners will get their winning entries published in the Winter 2008-09 edition of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine! As if that isn't enough, they will also get a $100+ prize package and a new Big Bite Crop a Dile from ScrapShotz and a chance to be a guest designer with ScrapShotz for a month! The runner up in each contest will each get a June Scrap Shotz Monthly Kit. Aside from those prizes there is also going to be a random participation draw for each round. Lots of chances to win!
I participated in a contest something like this on another board last year before the board closed and it was so much fun. I felt like a winner just for participating. I'm tempted to join in on one of these contests, but we'll have to see if I actually do or not. I've been in a bit of a scrapping slump lately.
Let me know if you decide to give it a try.
