Back in March I proposed a little Pinterest contest for PassPorter. The idea was to have Disney Pinterest fans make a Disney-themed pinboard, include some PassPorter tags and pins, fill it with Disney-related pins, and submit it by May 10. And you all came through brilliantly! I’ve been in Pinterest heaven for the last several days looking through nearly 200 pinboards jam-packed with Disney and travel related pins.
Narrowing that list down to just one pinboard was VERY difficult. With future Pinterest contests (and yes, I’d love to do more!), I’ll probably want to get more specific simply to help find a winner easier. For this contest, I simply asked you to include Disney pins and announced I’d pick a winner based on originality, creativity, and adherence to the rules. Nearly everyone followed the rules, which left looking for something cool and different. I narrowed the list down to 10 pinboards, which I’d like to showcase here for your enjoyment! Here they are:
- Chiradora (42 pins) — I enjoyed Chiradora’s pinboard primarily because of the awesome stick figure family she made to show off her Disney side. Super cute.
- StephBlovvski (260 pins) — She used the description field (super helpful!), and I really liked how she made her own pins for remembering tips.
- Hypnozia (41) — This is a great use of a map pinboard! (Here’s how to make a Disney map pinboard.)
- RosemondG ( 21) — Great focus on plans for the 2015 Princess Half Marathon!
- DisneyAC (166) — Excellent collection of Disney-themed pins.
- KillBunny (51) — I love how many of these pins are new pins, not simply repins (though she certainly has those, too).
- Jacksmom (505) — Over 500 pins! Wow! I’m impressed with the sheer size of this pin collection!
- Altchar (29) — And to prove you don’t have a lot of pins to get my attention, this pinboard only has 29 pins (when I checked), but I LOVE the theme of Disney at night. Beautiful photos bring back great memories.
- IrishSkater425 (95) — It’s ORGANIZED! Unique graphics were pinned and placed carefully to create a lovely showcase.
- SuellaDaville (202) — This pinboard is impressively large, but I really admired all the personal notes on pins about her interests/hopes/dreams. She’s personalized nearly every pin! I can feel her enthusiasm for Disney in each pin she selected here. She also used a description on her pinboard very effectively and met all our rules. This is a really great use of Pinterest!
I was so impressed that I’ve chosen SuellaDaville’s pinboard as our winner! She wins a Deluxe PassPorter of her choice, two PassHolder Pouches, some extra PassPockets, a PassPorter Pin, and a $50 gift certificate in case there’s more she wants that we didn’t include! Congratulations, Susan — please e-mail me at jennifer (at) passporter [dot] com so I can send you your prize!
I’d love to do another Pinterest contest! Before I settle on an idea, does anyone have ideas they’d like to share? Themes? Rules? Please reply here!
