This contest is about recognizing power Pinterest pinners who happen to be women.
How To Enter
1. Follow Pinterest/ScentTrail
2. I will add you to the board.
3. Pin 5 pins before 2.13.
4. Select 10 finalists. Community vote determines Queen of Pinterest.
10 Queen of Pinterest Finalists will receive Queen of Pinterest Contest Tees. After community vote, a Grand Prize Winner wins $250 donated to the cancer charity of his choice in his name (if he wants or anonymous if not).
Finalist Selection Criteria
We will be judging who can tell the most complete visual story in 5 pins. We will visit links behind the pins, but links are not required.
Eligibility & Legalese
Anyone can enter. I'm not going to fill up a page with legalese. I've created the contest without any official connection to Pinterest to find cool people to follow on Pinterest. Since the only cash prize goes to charity no "damages" are possible and so entering means you agree to be nice and play well with the other children and not sue or otherwise be a hard ass.
Why Do Prizes Suck?
I'm a cancer survivor and my salary in 2013 is going into a trust called The Story of Cancer Trust a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to create technology to help doctors and researchers cure cancer and help cancer patients, their friends and families feel better. Since I'm going to create the tees and $500 in cash prizes (Queen of Pinterest will be running too so $250 twice), this is about all I can afford :).
Tech Cures Cancer.
Changing Your Pins
Yes you can change your 5 pins until 2.13. At the stroke of midnight (assuming I'm up), the contest is frozen and the Queen will come from the 10 Finalist we select.
Seems Kind of Arbitrary
Hey I got cancer at 48 that is arbitrary the Queen of Pinterest contest is just fun with friends :). I promise to promote those who enter across my social nets, follow them on Pinterest and add those with the courage to enter to my FOM (Friends of Martin) group. Show how well you can knit a story together on Pinterest and you may just become the Queen of Pinterest.
If you are reading this and all kinds of angry, please don't be.
If I need to note you are the rightful owners of trademarks or patents or other stuff just tell me what to say and I will be glad to do so. Your tool rocks and I would never steal or abuse a team who created such a cool thing. I suspect you might have a hard time if I start screen printing Queen of Pinterest tees for sale so I won't be doing that. Will only print tees for Finalists and will only use words if your logo is off limits.
I think a Pinterest Cures Cancer would be a very cool tee (but won't do that either unless you too think it is cool).
Hope you are not all kinds of lawyer ticked off and will let me know how to fix whatever is wrong. My email is MartinSellingZoe(at)aol and my twitter is @ScentTrail betting you know my Pinterest handle and pages so just let me know how to correct anything you can't live with and I will do so immediately. Thanks. Marty
