Betabrand Sock Contest :: Vote For Your Favorite Finalist

Betabrand Sock Contest :: Vote For Your Favorite Finalist


We are back with an update on the Betabrand Sock Design contest we have been running on our blog for the past week. Submissions are officially closed for the contest, and it is time to get your vote on and help us pick the winning designs.

 

Betabrand is one of those really cool clothing companies that is sure to keep the men dapper and the women trendy at all times. Their latest release is a cool pair of shorts with a black & white design (with a hint of turquoise) that I think is pretty awesome. And in case you haven't heard this enough, COLOURlovers even has a collection of our own on the Betabrand website.

So let's get down to business. Submissions are now closed for the Betabrand contest. Thank you to everyone who has entered and voted!

Out the top 30 most-loved palettes Betabrand chose 9 design finalists and from there 3 will triumph as winners. The three winners will be bundled into a 3-pack and sold on the Betabrand website.

 

Voting is incredibly easy. All you have to do is head over to the Betabrand Contest Page and click to vote. You can only choose 1 to vote for, so make sure your choose your favorite. And to make things even more fun, 5 lucky voters will be randomly selected to win a free 3-pack of socks as well!

Good luck to all and happy voting! We will be back on Monday to announce the winners!

My vote is in! Good luck! I had so many favourites, I wish they could all win!

Out of curiosity, is there a way to see which palettes were in the top 30? They all deserve a great big congrats for making it that far. :)

Wait a second...I'm confused.
Did Betabrands randomly choose entries from the top 30? Something doesn't seem right here.....

Things have shuffled around a little bit since the voting closed yesterday.

I don't think they randomly chose. The original blog said the top 30 would be taken into consideration for the final 9 spots. After the voting closed yesterday, Betabrand selected the 9 they preferred, regardless of the ranking.

I'm confused too, all three of my socks were in the top 5 but not a single one is in the final, how does that happen? Come on Betabrand, give the people what they want! Seriously though, congrats to everyone who did make it, your socks are all awesome, I'm going to vote now but it's gonna be so hard to choose.

thicket

Aha, thanks! I admit I am disappointed that your Butt-kickers didn't make it in. :/

Whoa....wait (again)...the most loved entry didn't even make it to the final 9? o_O Ok, this is bizarre.

You are sweet, thank you :D

There were lotza lovely entries- I wouldn't want to be the one who had to whittle them down.

I'm assuming butt-kickers are out of style now ;) Time for me to go knit a pair for myself then :D

Wow, I just realised that too. My condolences Northern Dancer that's really unfair, your socks kicked butt. Also, it doesn't make sense from a sales/marketing perspective. I'm not an expert but surely all companies want to produce something that's popular? I noticed as well that two people have two entries in the top nine. This is no slight on the quality of the entries as they're all great but I would have thought it fairer to choose one from each and give more people a chance. I'm not meaning to sound bitter here, I'm really not as I did win last time but on behalf of everyone in the top 30 who didn't make it (especially ND) I do have to say that this seems a little dodgy.

thicket

Correction: time for you to knit EIGHTY-ONE pairs! :P

Thank you, Kelcey.
Congrats to everyone who did make it to the top 9. ^_^

Oh, no, not me; my socks didn't make it that far. I was rooting for Northern Dancer. :) Heck, I was rooting for everyone. I don't think I've ever voted so much before. That's the fun of argyles, pretty much any colour combo looks awesome!

I'm afraid my hand would fall off if I had to knit 81 pairs of my butt-kicker socks ;)

You're not a sore looser Mei, just an understandably baffled one:)

Hehe, and I'm a slow typer too since I just saw this reply after I typed my previous one :D I need some of those Superwoman hands that can move at the speed of light!

May I just commend you ND on being so gracious, you are a beautiful example to us all:)

Agreed!! :D You're my new role model.

*blushes* You are so sweet Luna and Mei too :D I still had a blast with the contest, which I blame on my ridiculous love for colored socks!

Time for me to head to bed. A full day of spring cleaning has tuckered me out and it's now midnight in my time zone.

G'night all!!!!

Sorry to those who got their hopes up and then were disappointed, though. I can imagine very well how that would feel.

southpaws

Awes, whoa. Though I'm excited to be in the top 9, I do feel bad for ND and Luna here. I kinda got the sense that the people that were finalists last sock contest haven't been selected this time. Perhaps because of that? :/

southpaws

Oh? I don't see where FB comes in here? -doesn't have FB connected to CL either- Did manage to get into the finals without it. n__n

Congratulations to the finalists! Now to vote, it will definitely take time since it can only be one vote. I could've never whittled it down to 30 let alone 9. Lots to wonder about but the contest was tons of fun even though I knew I'd never get anywhere near close to the finals I had fun voting for all of you.

I was only a few loves short of being able to be possible chosen for the top 9 but I probably wouldn't have been picked by them anyway.

After MUCH debate with myself (SO MANY beautiful finalists!!!) I picked these:

I think they were my favorite overall besides Moma's socks.

OrigamiMei

That could be a possibility. But if this is the case, they should have stipulated that entries created by previous finalists aren't eligible to win this contest. Northern_Dancer and Luna both had some of the most loved entries. This is because we, the COLOURlovers, voted them into top spots. Shouldn't that mean something?
I dunnoooooo 'bout this!

How can I choose which finalist to vote for? It's just not right!! x_x They're all awesome and we can only vote once. The agony!
