You know the one, you've seen it before. It may not be bright color but I have a lot of bold color in this room so I thought I would give it a shot.
I'm not even going to include the countless hours I spent designing this room. But I did spend a lot of time cleaning it, touching up the trim, buying flowers, photographing it, editing the images, writing the entry, all in order to compete.
Then they decided not to even let my room compete.
I understand that there may be bad entries or spam entries so everything has to be approved for the contest. They also said they only select the strongest entries for the competition.
I thought no problem. My entry is certainly strong enough. Plus at the time I submitted, there wasn't near as many entries in the southern category.
I submitted my entry more than 10 days before the deadline.
then the deadline to submit passed and still no word.
I double checked the rules and requirements to be sure I'd done everything right and sure enough I had.
Then I logged in to see this message...
Thanks for your entry, but due to the large number of entries received yours was not included in Room for Color 2010. We hope to hear from you again in the future. Enjoy the rest of the contest!
I can't imagine why I wasn't even given the chance for my entry to be seen.
And I hate to sound shallow but there are entries that I definitely do not feel are as strong as mine or photographed as well...
BTW, these images you see here are the exact ones I submitted. My photographer friend took them, another person's time wasted.
So that's how I got shunned by apartment therapy. Obviously I am quite bitter about it. To me it makes no sense.
My friends said to email them but I guess I just don't see the point.
Sorry to bring down your Wednesday but I'm just upset about this.
