Contest Time :: Senioritis Style

As many of you already know, here at senioritis one of the things we do is pay tribute to inspirational and motivational seniors throughout time and history with colorful (most of the time at least) art tributes.

We have already paid tribute to many people throughout the ages who have inspired us but now we want some input from you guys. Who inspires you?

We are very pleased to be anouncing our first contest; with a senioritis twist of course. Don't worry, it will be just like every other contest you've ever entered but different. Long story short, you, our readers, are going to help us choose a Famous Senior to pay tribute to!


What's in it for you: One winner will receive an 11x17" print and bookmark with a design they help us create, for free. Yes, for free ;)

How do you enter: That's the easy part! You don't need to follow our blog, like us on facebook, or follow us on twitter (although if you like our style we certainly won't hold any of these actions against you).

To enter simply comment below this post letting us know a quote that inspires you as well as who said it; keep in mind we are looking for people that are no longer among the living :)

Please, please, please leave us a way to contact you as well whether it be email, blog, twitter, where to send the smoke signals, whatever you prefer. It would be a shame if we chose you as the winner but didn't have a way to contact you :*(



Contest Terms: Each comment containing 1 quote will count as 1 entry. We will allow a maximum of 2 entries (2 submitted quotes) per person. If more than 2 entries are submitted don't worry we don't chop off any hands, we will simply consider your first 2 entries.

The contest will start today, 5/25/10 and will end next Wednesday 6/2/10. At the end of the contest period a winner will be chosen and we will contact the winner to help us begin creating a new design!

Once the design is created the winner will receive an 11x17" print and bookmark based on the design they help us create. The winning design will then be added to our Etsy shop as a Limited Edition (run of 10) 11x17" print and will be available for purchase.

Fine Print: 1. No purchase is required for entry, nor will a purchase improve an entrant's chances of winning. 2. The winner will be contacted via the provided contact method. 3. All entrants must have a valid shipping address. 4. The winner may not request a substitute prize. 5. Senioritis reserves the right to alter these rules at any time for any or no reason.

That should cover just about everything; any questions just post them in the comments section or please feel free to email us. We look forward to seeing who inspires you. Good luck and let's see some quotes!

  10. Audrey Hepburn was the inspiration for my vintage shop, and I love this quote from her:

    “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

    Great contest, thanks!
