Juicy Loves Spring Contest Winners

Who doesn't love spring? The Juicy Loves Spring contest was an exciting one for everyone to follow because it was your votes that determined the winners of the contest! We received over 20,000 votes in total! The Top 10 voted entries were featured on the Juicy Couture Facebook Fanpage and the final 3 winning sets were determined by a combination of Polyvore votes and Facebook votes. We're thrilled to announce the winners who will be receiving gift cards to a Juicy Couture store in the amounts of $1000, $500 and $250.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest by submitting sets and voting! Congratulations, winners!

i think it's ridiculous to make a contest like this (with really cool prizes) that people can vote, it should not be like this!! It should be just 3 winners chosed by you, the polyvore team or by juicy couture.
i mean, it was impossible to see all the sets to vote, so a lot didn't have a chance, and you know people can make other accounts to vote for them, or they can offer favs (i saw a lot of people offering faves for votes) it's just not fair!

First of all I want to congratulate the winners but I have some complains about this kind of contest, in my opinion the voting system doesn't work very well, not because of the voting itself but because people ended up getting crazy and offering for example favs in exchange or sending spam asking to vote for them. I know it's something that it's out of your control but it wasnt fair for the rest of us. On the other side, voting was really hard because there were so many entries, there should be a limit number for this kind of contest. I think that correcting this things may do the contest more fair for all the participants. Thank you!

I know now how the first place winner won over the 3rd place winner,it must have been from the Polyvore votes as well.
The 3rd place winner was miles ahead in the FB voting,so i was confused at that.

I also have to agree with Lee and Mary,where big prizes are concerened i dont beleive public voting is the correct way of doing it.
People WILL cheat,there is many programmes out there that will help you vote time and time again.There is also people out there who will make up countless accounts to vote.
I beleive big prizes should be chosen by either you guys or the sponsors themselves.

Congrats ladies,though it has been rather controversial.

Agree with most of the comments on here about the voting. The voting policy should be changed! This is more like a popularity contest and it takes away from the integrity of the work and effort of all polyvorian stylists.

I suggest blind voting - where users cannot see the creator of the set. Also narrowing down spam entries to those that are more serious. Then allowing people to vote from those sets. Maybe also make a bot that restricts new sets which reuse the same items from another set from being submitted.

Everyone has made some very good suggestions. Out of all of them, I believe that Anonymous suggestion of blind voting is the most fair. To solve the problem of their being too many sets, perhaps the entries could be distributed into folders designated by date, that way you know exactly where stopped looking. It might also be beneficial to cut off how many entries can be submitted in a day. Furthermore, I don't know how many entries a person can submit, but only 1-3 entries should always be allowed.

Congrats to all who won and who made TOP TEN!

I also agree with the voting. It opens other doors that can cause drama. I like it when the sponsors or poly team pick the finalist, but then We vote for the winners.

When it's a public vote people go for their friends and not really look at the sets. Plus with over a thousand entires looking through the sets should take more time and careful judging.

and to Anonymous, i don't think it would be smart for the items to be restricted after it is used in a set for another not to use. It's not smart on behalf of the sponsors who pay for these contest and like to see their images/logo. Beside one of the guidelines in poly is if we upload an item into this site it's open for everyone to use. People can't take full credit for an image where only the color was altered.
