Two assumptions I make about readers here:
- You might struggle (just a little) keeping your home under control. Might.
- You’re funny. Or at least you like funny things and/or don’t get offended by people who don’t themselves too seriously.
Because of those two assumptions, when Zep Commercial Cleaners (who make ALL sorts of great cleaning products from fence cleaner to toilet bowl cleaner to garbage odor eliminator) asked me to advertise their search for America’s Biggest Hot Mess contest . . . I decided it was a perfect fit.
I’ve been there. I’ve been at that point where I felt completely and totally overwhelmed and was sure the only way to ever dig myself out of the mess was to have someone come in and clean it up for me.
And that’s exactly what Zep Commercial will do for three winners of their contest! The three submissions with the most votes will be declared winners and will receive a complete house cleaning from Zep Commercial and $5,000 to help keep their home clean for one year. If the winners were nominated by someone else, the nominator will also receive $5,000!
I still have my days (weeks) when I could probably take a contender of a picture, but I was more than a little giddy when this was my husband’s reaction:
Like, it’s not an automatic assumption (anymore) that I could win this thing in a landslide!!! Wahoo!!
But oh my word, I can’t express how much I would love for one of YOU to win!!
Here are the contest details:
This contest is now over.
Zep Commercial is searching for America’s Biggest Hot Mess—that person who is undeniably and hopelessly challenged when it comes to keeping their home clean.
Zep Commercial will accept photo and video submissions for America’s Biggest Hot Mess at www.zepcommercial.com/americasbiggesthotmess.aspx between Feb. 6 to March 6, 2014.
Users can nominate themselves and are also encouraged to submit evidence of their friends’, family members’ and coworkers’ messy ways. If a person you nominate is declared one of the three overall winners, then you (the nominator) will receive $5,000.
Nominations and submissions should include a photo or video of the mess and story behind why that persons deserves professional cleaning help. Videos must be between 30 seconds and 2 minutes in length, and photos should not exceed 100MB. Acceptable formats for submissions include .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, .png, .mov, .mpeg, .mwv or .mp4.
Starting March 7, a team of cleaning experts at Zep Commercial will judge all eligible entries based on:
- The Story Behind the Mess (40%)
- Creativity (the funnier, the better!) (35%) and;
- Unbelievability Index (just how disgusting is the mess?) (25%)
From all eligible entries, the 10 entries with the highest scores will be named finalists.
The public will then vote on their favorites, and the three submissions with the most votes will be declared winners and will receive a complete house cleaning from Zep Commercial and $5,000 to help keep their home clean for one year. If the winners were nominated by someone else, the nominator will also receive $5,000!
Winners will be announced on or about April 7, 2014.
How cool is that? Start snapping pictures and taking videos!
