WHAT CAN I SUBMIT? We're an animal conscious company—always have been, always will be! But sometimes it's a little difficult to find accessories that are animal-friendly and attractive. So we decided to host an open call for fashion accessories—handbags, clutches, wallets, belts, etc.—that use materials alternative to leather, suede, pearls, feathers or any other material that threatens the welfare of another being.
WHAT ARE BUYERS LOOKING FOR? We take the term "uncommon" pretty seriously around here and are on the hunt for truly unique artwork. Our buyers love anything that has an exciting story, so tell us about it in your entry. Where does your inspiration come from? What hurdles have you jumped to get to your final draft? As far as what not to submit, make sure your art is free of trademarks or logos.
HOW CAN I SUBMIT? You can submit your designs by clicking the "Enter Here" link at the bottom of the page. Please be sure to fill out the form in its entirety before submitting your entry. You will receive a confirmation email if your entry was submitted successfully.
WHAT DO I GET IF I WIN? We thought you might ask that! If you are our grand prize winner—and let's face it, why wouldn't you be?—you'll receive $500 cash (OK, it's a check, but you get the idea) and a potential vendor contract at UncommonGoods. You'll work with your assigned buyer—to build an inventory schedule based on your capability. Your design will be shown on UncommonGoods.com, in our marketing emails, and possibly in the catalog. You'll also reserve the right for a judgment-free victory dance.
WHAT IF I DON'T WIN? This question bums us out, but all runners-up will receive a critique of their work from the guest judges, will receive tips for marketing and growing their businesses from the UncommonGoods marketing team, and may still be considered for entrance into our collection.
I STILL HAVE A QUESTION! Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or go here to visit their website.
