Hello and welcome to #highfivemakemodern - our fifth birthday celebration!
Make Modern is FIVE and to celebrate (and thank you for your support), we are giving you the opportunity to win prizes from some of our favourite businesses.
HOW DO I ENTER?
Entering is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1. Follow Make Modern on Instagram
2. Make any project from any issue of Make Modern magazine
3. Share a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #highfivemakemodern. Don't forget to include which issue your chosen pattern is from.
With over 300 patterns to choose from, we're sure you'll have no trouble choosing something you love. You may choose to follow a pattern exactly, or put your own spin on it. Small projects should be finished, but flimsy quilt tops are OK (we don't expect you to start and finish an entire quilt in a month, but kudos to those who do!). You may enter as many times as you like during the month of September, with a separate photo for each finished project.
The competition is open internationally. Entries open 1 September and close 30 September 2019. Winners will be announced in our email newsletter and featured on our Instagram in October. Entrants must have purchased a copy of the Make Modern issue containing their chosen pattern/s, or have a subscription to Make Modern.
WHERE CAN I SEE A LIST OF MAKE MODERN PATTERNS?
Head to our Pattern Gallery to see the huge archive of Make Modern patterns. If you don't already own a copy of the issue your chosen project was published in, you can purchase the issue and download it instantly, or subscribe to our All-Access subscription and get instant access to every single issue of Make Modern ever published.
HOW DO I BUY A MAKE MODERN PATTERN?
All back issues of Make Modern magazine are available from our shop and can be purchased and downloaded instantly. We don't sell the patterns separately, but you can purchase entire issues for just AU$8 (approx. US$5.50, CA$7, €5 or £4.50, PayPal will display the price in your local currency during checkout). Each issue includes 10-14 patterns and 10-14 articles. If you're super keen, subscribe to our All-Access Subscription and get instant access to all 300+ patterns via one simple link. Subscribe during September to receive a FREE enamel pin.
WHAT IF MY INSTAGRAM IS PRIVATE?
Unfortunately, if your Instagram is set to private, we won't be able to see your entry posts. You could set your account to public while the competition is open, or create a secondary public account and share your posts from there. Alternatively you can send us a photo of your finished project via Direct Message in Instagram.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I AM A WINNER?
Winners will be announced in our email newsletter and featured on our Instagram in October. Please ensure you sign up to our newsletter list and add our email address firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book so our emails don't get marked as spam, or delivered to junk.
