A Palette Promo is either a Competition or Giveaway, run by Stitch Palettes which encourages interacting with followers and fostering a sense of community around the brand.
Palette Promos are open to both amateur and professional embroiderers (‘Entrants’) aged 18 years and over (or of the age of majority in jurisdictions in their respective country), and from all over the world.
Entrants must not be an employee, officer or agent of Stitch Palettes, nor an employee, officer or agent of any person or organisation involved in the running of the Palette Promos, nor a family relation of any such person.
The applicable costs (if any) for entering are set out on the website, and the prize (‘Prize’) shall be as specified on the website.
There is no maximum number of entries (‘Entry’) to the Prize per person.
The monthly themed Palette Promo shall close for entries at the time and on the date specified on the website. We may extend the deadline without prior notification if needed.
The winners will be chosen in one of two ways:
- by the Stitch Palettes team based on embroidery skill level, artistic sensibilities, emotion, impact and originality
- by a public voting system accessible on Stitch Palettes website and/or social media outlets
The winner is selected based on probability and not skill. Entries will be assigned a unique ID as they are recorded. Within seven days of each giveaway end, a random Entry ID will be generated by a machine algorithm, and the Prize will be attributed to the corresponding Entry.
Awarding The Prize
Stitch Palettes aims to announce the winners for each Palette Promo within seven days of the submission close date. The winners will be notified by email and published on the Stitch Palettes website and associated social media.
The 1st Prize Entrant will have 30 days from the email date to claim their Prize (they will be notified of their prize and any further instructions in the email). Failing to do so will result in loss of the prize. Winners are accountable for costs associated with the award acceptance, such as any applicable federal, state, provincial and local taxes.
Stitch Palettes reserves the right to change, or modify the prize at any time before the end of the Palette Promo, but will make sure to inform all Entrants.
If a competition Entrant does not meet the eligibility requirements or is subject to any entry restrictions, that Entrant shall not be entitled to be judged a winner, and will not be entitled to a prize in any circumstances.
Entrant’s images should be sized under 6mb each and in .jpg or .png format. Photos should be high-resolution (5 megapixels or higher) and show a good representation of the Entrant’s work, under good lighting.
Right to cancel
Stitch Palettes reserves the right to cancel or suspend any running Contest or Giveaway at its own discretion if not capable of continuing as planned for any reason that is beyond its control.
Stitch Palettes also reserves the right to change the Contest or Giveaway rules. If this happens, all Entrants whom the changes affect will be notified by email.
Stitch Palettes will take no responsibility for the repercussions of any photograph submitted to us, nor any problems incurred by the Entrants while participating in any Contest or Giveaway run on this website.
