Category: Contests by Stone Culdesac

1-800-flowers are having an ultimate flower bouquet contest.

Welcome to the 1-800-Flowers.com Ultimate Second Life Flower Bouquet Design Contest!

1-800-Flowers.com knows a thing or two about creating bouquets in Real Life, but we’re looking to the community to decide what the ultimate flower bouquet in Second Life looks like. We are looking for the most creative and visually appealing bouquet that fits the 1-800-Flowers mission of helping people express themselves and connect.

We are sponsoring floral design classes at the Academy of Second Learning to allow all residents – expert designers as well as newcomers – to participate. Second Life URL

    The Competition seems to have been a scandal, the people who entered things have not been told who won, or been contacted or anything. Is this just another unscrupulous company who deserve to be boycotted??? It seems impossible to get any answers or contact with these people.
