Aloha, design community! Earlier this month we shared exciting news about our upcoming June design challenge sponsored by Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. We hope you’re as inspired by the surroundings of the Hilton Hawaiian Village as we are! While you may already be sharpening those pencils, sketching your design ideas and dreaming of the sand between your toes, we’ve been rounding up a few FAQs regarding the official rules and prizes for our biggest design challenge yet!
What does the PR trip entail?
We’re rolling out the red carpet to welcome our VIP guests! Interviews, dinner parties and photo opportunities are just a few of the activities lined up for your memorable stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. This is also a great time to connect with other Spoonflower designers!
Is the trip transferrable for those who cannot travel?
We want to encourage everyone to participate in our weekly design challenges but ask that each winner throughout the month of June redeem their two trips to Hawaii thanks to our generous partners at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
If I win, do I have to make two separate 5 day trips to Hawaii?
We understand everyone has a busy schedule and you are invited to extend your PR trip to include your 5 vacation days. Please note all hotel booking will be facilitated through Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Do I have to include Hilton imagery or logos in my design entries?
No. We encourage you to find design inspiration on the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort Facebook page and our curated Pinterest boards but your design entry should not include logos, photos or imagery of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
What qualifies a design as “new”?
The spirit of the Design Challenge is to give a creative prompt that inspires designers to introduce a new design to the Marketplace that speaks specifically to the theme we have crafted. Designs must be original and cannot have been entered in previous Spoonflower contests and/or made public and/or made for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace prior to the design challenge announcement. Your work may be previously published on a third party e-commerce site.
Can I participate in all four Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort design challenges?
Of course! As long as you are entering a new design that fits the theme of the current week, we encourage you to participate in all four design challenges during the month of June!
Can you advertise for votes or ask fans to vote for your design?
Yes! We encourage you to promote your design during voting through your favorite social media channels but please note it is against the rules to incentivize voting.
