SpareFoot, based in Austin, TX, is the world's largest online marketplace for self-storage.

Everybody has that one weird thing that has to go into storage.

SpareFoot, the nation’s largest online marketplace for self-storage, is giving movers a chance to win six months of storage in the SpareFoot Self-Storage Selfie Photo Contest. The photo with the most votes by Oct. 20, 2013, will win the grand prize.

The contest is aimed at making life easier for the millions of Americans using self-storage to get through their moves to downtown apartments, college campuses and dream homes. SpareFoot seeks to reward the most fun, unique photo entry with six months of self-storage, valued at $500.

“Everybody has that one weird thing that has to go into storage,” SpareFoot Marketing Manager Rachel Greenfield said. “I have a solid gold leotard from our recruiting video taking up my closet space. This photo contest is a safe place to share everyone’s weirdest stuff and take a selfie without feeling self-conscious.”

Entry into the giveaway is simple--visit the contest tab on SpareFoot’s Facebook page and follow these steps:

1. Snap a selfie (a self-portrait photo) with the wackiest, most interesting or most unusual item going into storage.

2. Upload the photo directly through the tab, or post it to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #storageselfie.

3. Encourage friends to vote for your photo by sharing the link on Facebook and Twitter.

4. Get the most votes to win six free months of storage or a $500 Visa gift card!

“Self-storage can get pretty crazy,” SpareFoot Social Media Manager Matt Stites said. “It’s not all old photos and rusty bikes. People store fascinating stuff, and we want to see some of that.”

The winner will be announced on SpareFoot’s Facebook page after the contest closes Oct. 20, 2013.
