Foster City, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2009
In an attempt to stay frugal in the current economy, many homeowners have been inspired to begin home improvement projects, taking on the extra work themselves. The home improvement site, Repair-Home.com, has launched a new contest using its interactive feature, Share Your Project (http://www.repair-home.com/project), which allows users to share, rate and comment on home renovation projects.
Contestants are encouraged to upload before and after pictures of their home remodel projects along with a description of the project. Submissions will be judged in 17 different categories, including kitchens, painting, green renovations and landscaping. The contestant in each category with the most votes will win $100 gift certificates to Home Depot and one finalist will receive a grand prize of $1,000 cash. Contestants can enter as often as they like, in as many categories as they like. There is no limit to the number of categories one contestant can win.
The contest begins September 23, 2009. The first round, in which the 17 category winners will be awarded $100 Home Depot gift certificates, ends on November 20th, 2009. The five category winners with the most votes will go on to round two. Visitors to the site between November 20th and December 15th will vote for their favorite of the five finalists. The winning home improvement project will be announced on December 16, 2009, and will win the grand cash prize of $1,000.
"We are really excited to launch this contest" Repair-Home spokesperson, Vache Moroyan said. "Share Your Project allows our site users to showcase their talent and their hard work. Providing incentives for our users helps to ensure high-quality content for our site visitors."
Share Your Project allows site visitors to show off their home renovation projects using videos, project summaries and photos. In addition to sharing their home improvement knowledge, site visitors can rate and leave comments about other projects and help select the winning projects.
The contest allows homeowners to easily share their projects with interested parties in the Repair-Home.com community. Contractors looking to show potential clients their past work are also encouraged to use the feature. Those who may not have an at-home project but are interested in renovation are also urged to vote and make comments about the home renovation projects contest submissions.
