We’re Combining Two Passions – Creating and Giving!
The biggest kick about working (playing?) at Adjectives is finding awesome ways to combine the things we love. Our members join their passion for old stuff with creative inspiration to produce some fantastic furniture and home decor. Now we’re combining our affection for this great community with our passion for fantastic style!
We call it “Giving With Style”, and it’s all about harnessing the creative talents in our community to make life better for those in need. There’s something here for everyone so read on!
Giving back is always in style. We wanted to find a way for everyone to give with style while also showing off your creative side. The #GivingWithStyle Charity Art Contest provides everyone an outlet to showcase their creative passions for more reasons that one. There’s a hefty cash prize on the line and your art could become a new t-shirt and product line at Adjectives. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
First, let’s explain why we created the #GivingWithStyle Charity Art Contest.
Adjectives Market believes in creating a style that is unique to you and showing it off for the world to see. Avoiding conformity, disregarding trends and focusing on what makes you feel great, we want to inspire you to create a style you love.
The Giving With Style Charity Art Contest gives local artists the opportunity to design an original piece of art that relates to the mission of a local Central Florida charity. The winning design will be placed on t-shirts and other products to be sold at Adjectives and ADJstyle.com. With community connection at the core of our values, we are always looking for ways to support our local Central Florida community. Now you can give back with style, ignite your creative powers and showcase artistic style.
We’re supporting Ribbon Riders for our first art contest.
Before we get into the details, you need to meet the amazing people you’re about to help! When we first discovered this group we were blown away by their mission. Our first beneficiary is Ribbon Riders – they are a Lake Mary organization that helps women with breast cancer meet the crazy challenges that cancer brings to their lives. Most of us have watched as loved ones suffer through cancer, so we all know the terrible obstacles that stand in the way of treatment. The mission of Ribbon Riders is to provide assistance to clear those obstacles so that women can get the treatment they need.
Check out their website and see the incredible work they do. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month so the timing is perfect!
How Does #GivingWithStyle Work?
Give With Style has two parts – a community-driven creative contest, and a chance for YOU to give by putting your individual style on display and spreading the word about Ribbon Riders.
There are many ways to get involved with the #GvingWithStyle Contest. Whether you feel creative or not, you can join in on the fun of voting for the winner and wearing the new design! Here’s how you can get involved.
1. Create artwork that relates to the mission of Ribbon Riders.
Are you inspired to design? The first step is a contest for our incredibly talented creative community. Create an awesome piece of original art relating to the mission of Ribbon Riders. We’re looking for something that makes people think and feel about the impact that breast cancer has on the lives of the people we love. Something people will talk about, and ask about. Most importantly, we want a piece that people will be proud to incorporate into their personal style! We also request (but do not require) an artist statement.
Adjectives and Ribbon Riders will select the best submissions, and we’ll hold a community vote online and in-store to determine the winner. The pieces will be on display for viewing in-person at our Altamonte location.
The Grand Prize: The winning artist receives $350 cash!
To get inspiration for your artwork and learn more about Ribbon Riders, read their amazing story.
The Deadline: The deadline to submit your design is October 22nd, 2016.
You can read the official rules here.
2. Vote for your favorite work of art on October 27, 2016.
Not an artist but still want to support the cause? You can vote on the best piece of art!
On October 27th we will announce the Top 5 pieces of art on our Facebook page. For two days you will have a chance to vote for the design you want to see printed on t-shirts and other fun products made by Adjectives!
On October 29th, we’ll announce the winner. The artwork with the most votes from our Facebook fans WINS!
3. Show your style and support. 100% of the proceeds go to Ribbon Riders.
The next step is the really fun part. Everyone in the community will get the opportunity to support Ribbon Riders, make a personal style statement, and recognize local artists. We’re going to turn the winning work of art into an awesome line of t-shirts and other personal accessory products available for sale at Adjectives and online. The proceeds from the sale of these items will go to Ribbon Riders, and then directly to helping folks in need. You’ll wear your shirt with pride and style, and when people ask about it, you can tell them all about the great mission of Ribbon Riders (and where they can get their own, of course!).
4. As always, you can support Ribbon Riders by directly donating here.
