Sweet of the What?!
Yes you read it correctly, month.
As you may or may not know, Sweetopia has been undergoing some changes with Sweet of the Week. To add to the chaos, it will from here on in be retitled: Sweet of the Month.
To find out what Sweet of the Month is all about, a list of FAQ's and more, click here.
Since there's likely going to be a bit more competition and voting: 24 contestants will be hand picked by Marian. To sweeten the deal, we're adding something special to this month's competition.
Our wonderful sponsor Beyond Pots and Pans is excited to provide this competition with a product giveaway! Once all the votes for the 24 contestants are in, one Viking Hand Mixer, in the color of their choice, will go out to the winner.
Ok so, we realize not everyone can win, and not everyone will be chosen to compete. And what about the people who just vote? They deserve a little something too! All Sweetopia readers can now enter the offer code SWEET at Beyond Pots and Pans for a 10% DISCOUNT on anything in store.
Everyone gets one week to submit something special for voting. (Submission dates; January 15th – 21st, 2012). The contest is international. Voting by you will begin Jan. 22nd and extend until February 18th, 2012, 9pm EST.
The winner will be announced on Facebook, twitter, pinterest and contacted for shipping information.
Good luck to everyone!

@ STACEY MCDONNELL:
Oh my I tried to read over the typing errors and misseda bunch how terribly embarressing. Sorry!!!!!! Hope you can read it. Hugs Stacey
HI @ STACEY MCDONNELL! The time zone is EST and it ends at midnight tonight, yes. The gallery is private until all submissions are in because the widget doesn’t automatically post them, we have to go in to ‘activate them’. Have you clicked through to the FAQ section? (I think so, but just checking. I think I’ll add more info. to that section too). Annnd, I’m going to go look through the images now actually! (exciting!). Voting by you will begin Jan. 22nd and extend until February 18th, 2012, 9pm EST. AFter that we’ll let you know through a new Sweetopia post when the next contest begins. It may begin the very next day, or we might need a few days to fix a few things (for example a specific line for you to enter your photo url). THANK YOU for entering (even if it’s next time) and for your kind comments. I wish you LOTS of luck!! xoxo
@ Vanessa: Will let you know on facebook and twitter if there are issues, otherwise they begin around 1am EST.

Hi Marian, I posted my photo at the beginning of the week and everything seemed fine, but it doesn’t show up in the photos to be voted on? Was it only some of the photos that were included in the voting process?
Hi @ Annette S:
It was so difficult to chose! I’m really so sorry your sweet isn’t in this month’s contest! There were so many amazing ones I couldn’t include! Thank you for entering, please enter again after Feb. 18th, and for tips on how photos were chosen (It really was hard and I wish I could have chosen a few more, but we had decided on 24, as more than that seemed like too much to vote on) you can see the FAQ section here: https://sweetopia.net/sweet-of-the-week/
