Contest: All about Cotton and Algodón

Submitted by on May 17, 2009 – 7:05 pmNo Comment

Spanish cotton contest

OK, crafty, sewing, knitting, Etsy.com-loving chicas, this contest is for you.

Cotton Incorporated — the organization that promotes cotton — is debuting a new Spanish-language website, ViveAlgodon, and a contest that could land you a gig blogging about cotton. Talk about a niche.

To enter, you complete a form on the website and submit a 300-word essay on how cotton fabrics are a part of your life.  The winner receives $1,000, a trip for two to N.Y. to see how cotton becomes fashion and textiles and consideration for the blog gig. The Vive Algodón site will focus on tips for home decorating, fashion and fabric care.

The essay must be written in Spanish. Deadline is June 26. Full details are on the site.

Go check it out.

You could be the next Crafty Chica, you know. Si, mamita.
