This month's "Ocean Breezes" challenge is inspired by sandy beaches, gentle shoreline winds, refreshing waters, and warm sun! All EtsyVeg members are welcome to enter any one item that relates to the ocean and all it represents- sunshine, relaxation, vegetation and animals, weather, clothing, boardwalk fun, and anything & everything inbetween. This would also be a really good opportunity to create or enter something related to ocean conservation and protection.
The challenge theme is very subjective, so enter whatever handmade creation, vintage item, or supply, new or already listed in your shop, fits the theme for you! The theme may be taken literally, but is wide open to any interpretation. ;)
Each month's challenge entries will be listed on the blog and put up for public vote, the winner receiving an ad for their shop on the team for the entire month following. :) Every 6 months, all 6 winners from the last series of challenges will be put up for a vote together, the top vote getter winning a grand prize! Yay! Our next 6 month voter is in August!
Please join in our creative celebration for this month! Here's how to enter...
~Participation is open to any EtsyVeg team member.
~Each member may enter one item. Entry involves simply posting the link to an applicable item in your Etsy shop in July's monthly challenge forum thread and tagging that item with the tag "oceanbreezes" (all one word, without the quotations). You must also have your entry tagged with the official team tag, "etsyveg team."
~If an item entered in the challenge sells before the end of the month, please send a convo to the EtsyVeg Etsy shop, including the link to the sold item, so that it can still be included.
~Deadline for entry is Sunday, August 8th.
~All entries will be featured in a treasury on the EtsyVeg blog at the beginning of next month, to be voted on by the public (EtsyVeg members can vote, too). The top vote-getter will be awarded with an ad for their Etsy shop on the top of the blog sidebar for the entire month until the next winner is chosen. At the end of six months, all winners from the past six months will be up for vote on the blog again, this time eligible to win a grand prize gift! July is month number six!
~All EtsyVeg members (not just participants) are encouraged throughout the month to initiate forum threads about the challenge, make treasuries by doing a tag search for "etsyveg team" with "oceanbreezes" 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!)
~Please direct concerns or questions to silentlotus or aktie9, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 living consciously; and to raise awareness about the ease of eco-friendly living and the rights of animals to live free of exploitation.
