Sawgrass announces Tongela Bruton of Ohemaa’s Custom Creations as the winner of its January #SubWithSawgrass photo contest. Bruton’s submission included a crossover sling bag with a sublimated flap closure, featuring artwork that shows a woman alongside the quotation, “I am loved.” She was randomly selected by Sawgrass and will now have the opportunity to select her choice of one cartridge of ink.
Bruton elaborates on her winning entry, saying, “I have a theme that I use called my #encouragement series. In this series, I put motivational words to help little girls feel special. This bag is a part of (that).”
Check out the photo gallery of January’s entries here.
Looking ahead, February’s photo contest is now in effect. Participants can enter photos of their most creative and best-selling sublimation products for a chance to win a mystery box of Sawgrass substrates.
Entrants have several options to submit their work: upload photos via the entry page, hashtag “SubWithSawgrass” on Instagram or Twitter posts, or tag a post on the Sawgrass Facebook page.
February’s contest will close at 11:59 p.m. on February 28th, and the March contest will launch the following day. One winner will be announced the week after the end of each contest.
Public Relations Manager Robin Kavanagh says there are three key benefits to offering contests like this: “It’s a great way to stay in touch with the end users of our products. We get to see what they’re creating and how they are using sublimation in their business.
“It (also) enables us to acknowledge their talents and thank them for being customers.
“Finally, we are able to identify people in the marketplace we can interact with offline, and have more meaningful conversations with them about our products and what we can do to better meet their needs.”
