BLOG_BNR_UpcyclingCompetition_1_700x290 (1)


You know all about upcycling, right? It basically means taking something old, used or worn and turning it into something new, useful and/or beautiful. You can find all kinds of upcycled items on DaWanda. We want to see something which YOU have upcycled! It can be anything, as long as it follows the basic principle of turning something old into something new. If the community likes your design the most, then you will win a 100 Euro DaWanda voucher!


You have until Friday 19.09.2014 (11am CEST) to send a photo of your upcycled creation to english@dawanda.com. Write a couple of lines to explain what you made. It can also be an item which is already in your DaWanda shop! Just send us the link.

From Monday 21.09 til Monday 28.09 (11am CEST), your friends, fans and followers will have the chance to vote for your creation.

We will put all of the competition entries in a brand-new photo album on DaWanda’s Facebook Fan Page. You can vote for an entry by giving a Like to its photo. At the end of the voting phase, the photo with the most Likes wins!


Terms & Conditions of Participation:

No new entries will be added to the Facebook album after 11am CEST on 21.09.2014

There is a maximum of three entries per shop (or per seller if you run more than one shop).

For reasons of fairness, each participant can win only once, even if they entered more than once.

Products which are already listed for sale on DaWanda can also participate.

We reserve the right not to present an entry on Facebook if it does not meet the competition requirements, if it is photographed too badly, or if we think it is not creative enough. Unfortunately we cannot provide personal feedback if an item is not chosen.

All participants are encouraged to invite their friends and family to vote for their entry! However, it’s not okay to send our mass messages or to ‘spam’ people via the DaWanda messaging system – to do so may result in disqualification from the competition.

The decision is final. Employees of DaWanda and it’s partner firms and their relations are not permitted to participate.

There is no cash alternative to prizes. If for any reason the winner is not able to accept their prize, we do not guarantee that an alternative prize can be offered.

The winners will be announced in the DaWanda blog within 7 days of the end of the competition, and will also be informed via an e-mail, in which their DaWanda voucher will be sent. The voucher is attached to your DaWanda shop and is non-transferrable.

Agreeing to our Terms & Conditions is a prerequisite for participation. Each participant gives consent that the personal data they provide to us as part of this competition may be stored and processed in accordance with our data protection policy. This conforms strictly to EU data protection legislation. We take no responsibility for the non-receipt or late delivery of emails. We reserve the right to terminate, suspend or change this competition and/or its rules at any time.

By participating in this competition, you agree to the potential publication of your idea and photos in the press and by DaWanda partners, in the DaWanda blog, on Facebook and in any other DaWanda publication.

To conclude we would like to remind you that the DaWanda team makes the final decision about which entries will participate in the competition. We will be selecting the most unusual and interesting products, with the best photographs.

Lots of fun and lots of luck – we look forward to seeing your upcycled creations!

    The cut is actually a more technical term that describes how
    many facets, or smooth flat sides the diamond has.
    Otherwise, the faults are likely to be ttotally visible.

    The light reflection will pass through the diamond stone that is
    the perfect one as per the cutting and setting.
