Surya Launches Instagram Contest
Rug and home accessories vendor Surya is inviting designers and retailers to Instagram a photo of themselves with a Surya tote bag in an interesting or unusual location for a chance to win free Surya products.
Surya hands out thousands of colorful jute tote bags at various markets and events each year and wants to see all of the fun places that people take its bags.
The following prizes will be awarded to the three most creative and original entries:
* 1st Prize: $1,000 worth of Surya products.
* 2nd Prize: $500 worth of Surya products.
* 3rd Prize: $250 worth of Surya products.
To take part in the contest, entrants must:
* Follow @suryasocial on Instagram.
* Post a photo of themselves with a Surya tote bag in a novel or original location.
* Mention @suryasocial and tag #SpottedwithSurya.
“At Surya, we recognize the importance of using sustainable materials whenever possible,” said Satya Tiwari, president of Surya, Calhoun, Ga. “With this in mind, we have designed our reusable tote bags to be both eye-catching and eco-friendly, providing a smart and stylish alternative to plastic shopping bags. We look forward to viewing the entries on Instagram and discovering the many places people are carrying Surya tote bags.”
Each photo counts as one entry, with a limit of two entries per Instagram account. Instagram users who submit a valid entry agree to allow Surya to use the photo as it pertains to the #SpottedwithSurya contest. Prizes shown reflect retail value of merchandise. The contest will close at midnight (eastern time) on June 20, and winners will be contacted via Instagram.
Launched in 2013, Surya’s Instagram page has more than 3,600 followers.
