September's Monthly Challenge- Join in!

You are cordially invited to play, get more involved with the team, get inspired, share your talent, and take advantage of some free promotion!

The EtsyVeg monthly challenge is meant to inspire, recognize, and promote team members and our shops; to spread the word about vegan/vegetarian lifestyles; and to raise awareness about the rights of animals to live free of exploitation. This month's theme is "Patriotism," or if you're in a country nearing an election, "Craft the Vote."

So get your flags waving and forge ahead into creating your patriotic pieces, whatever that means for you. Happy creating! :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Challenge Guidelines:*

~Participation is open to any EtsyVeg team member. Members of CrueltyFreeEtsy and VeganEtsy are also invited to join (spread the word).

~Entry involves simply posting applicable items in your shop with the tag "Patriotic" (all one word, and without the quotations). It helps if you have your entry tagged with "etsyveg" or "etsyveg team" as well.

~Deadline for entry is September 30th.

~One entry per participant will be featured in the EtsyVeg blog at the beginning of October.

~All team members (not just participants) are invited throughout September to initiate forum threads about the challenge, make treasuries by doing a tag search for "Patriotic" (again, without the quotes) and putting only those items in the treasury, or to generate other types of promotion. (If you do any of these, please let everyone know so that we can all post or click to keep it going!)

The Challenge themes for the next three months have already been decided- keep them in mind and let your creative tendencies be inspired ahead:
October- "Halloween"
November- "Harvest/Vegecopia"
December- "Holiday Magic"

~*Have fun!*~
