How It Works

For this contest, we’ll ask you to use Polyvore to create your inspiration board. If you’ve never used it before, it’s fast and easy! Scroll down for a quick tutorial on how to use it.

To participate in this contest for your chance to win our awesome prize pack, simply create the perfect inspiration board using elements of spring! Think fun color schemes, fresh flowers, and pretty accessories! You can choose to design a Spring Awakening wedding or other special event.

Once complete, you can easily submit your entry with the link to your Polyvore inspiration board using the form at the bottom of this page. Be sure to submit by April 25th, 2016!

On April 26th, we’ll post the semi-finalists on QC Event School’s Facebook Page where you’ll vote for your favorites by liking the best boards! The five inspiration boards with the most “likes” by April 29th will be our finalists!

The Judge

We’re so excited to have QC Event School tutor, Athena DeVonne, critique and score our five amazing finalists. Athena will use her personalized scorecard to help her pick the winner of the grand prize!

Here’s Athena’s scorecard to see exactly what she’ll be looking for in each finalist’s inspiration board:

  • Color Scheme: Do the colors work together seamlessly with one another? Does the color scheme match/work with the selected theme?
  • Theme Clarity: Do the chosen design items depict a clear representation of the selected theme? Are the items in the chosen color scheme? Is there a clear understanding of the theme?
  • Design Board Layout: Is the board constructed with a clear and concise message as to how the items relate to the theme? Can all items be seen free of too much overlapping?
  • Mixed Media: Does the vision board consist of items that create texture, dimension, and depth to further carryout the selected theme? Or are all the items of one medium?
  • Inspiration: At first glance does the vision board inspire you? Are you excited about it? Does it seem the entrant had fun putting the board together?
