OPC's Before & After Contest {Enter Your Project to Win!}

Supporting Habitat for Humanity

I've got a fun announcement for y'all today! For the past five summers, One Project Closer has hosted a really fun series sponsoring Habitat for Humanity. It's a really fun series where bloggers enter their best "before and after" projects in order to win some great prizes and to benefit Habitat. You can read more about the series right here.

If you remember, David and I entered our master bathroom renovation makeover last year and actually won one of the weekly prizes! We were really excited.

T H E    D E T A I L S :
Here are the basics: you submit pictures and a story about a home improvement project you worked on (no contracted jobs) sometime over the past year. Every week of the summer (June 20 – September 21), a winner is selected and their story is published online.

Each winner gets a $50 gift card to either Lowes, Home Depot, or Amazon, and One Project Closer makes a donation of $100 to Habitat for Humanity in their honor!

At the end of the summer, the best submission, as voted on by readers, wins a bonus $150 gift card to one of the three stores above.

This year, they've decided to switch it up and handle things a little differently. They've asked several bloggers, including yours truly!, to host a different week of the summer. I get to announce the project,  pick that week's winner and feature the winner right here on Ten June.

Here are the other fabulous bloggers who are hosting the OPC series this summer:

June 17 OPC’s The Better Half
June 24 Pretty Handy Girl
July 1 Beneath My Heart
July 8 Ten June
July 15 Southern Hospitality
July 22 Charles and Hudson
July 29 House of Hepworths
August 5 the space between
August 12 Remodelaholic
August 19 DIY Showoff
August 26 My Blessed Life
September 2 Home Stories A-2-Z
September 9 Bear Rabbit Bear
September 16 Burlap & Denim

So now you're all jazzed and ready to enter, right?! Well here's how....

H O W   T O   E N T E R :
To submit a before and after project, link your project up here to the OPC link party. Or you can email OPC your submission to beforeandafter@oneprojectcloser.com. Your entry can be in the email itself or attached as a Word document. Make sure to number pictures in order so it’s easy for them to reconstruct the story and please attach the pictures as JPEGs even if you also embed them inside the Word document.

Keep in mind that good before and after stories include interesting pictures (before, during, and after) and a descriptive story. Here are some great examples from last year. Select one of your best makeover projects to share, and don’t be surprised if OPC pins their favorite projects to Pinterest.

So there you have it, folks! I'll be choosing my winner for the week on Saturday, July 14th. Get your best before and after projects ready and go link up!
