PokerStars Women: Creativity abounded for Pinterest competition

PS Women logo.jpgPinterest is the latest and greatest social media forum where people share photos, links, and videos of their favorite things. It's a way to pin your own photos and share them with the world, and re-pin others' pictures on your board. People use it to gather recipes, plan weddings and birthday parties, and generally be inspired. Pinterest's popularity has simply soared. So, what better place to hold a photo competition?

Throughout the month of August, we invited players to "Have a beautiful summer with Mobile" and show us how they use their PokerStars Mobile app to enjoy the summer months. We received some amazing entries! All of them can be seen on our Pinterest PokerStars Summer board.

Our first weekly winner was from olivia_bxl, and she received a PS Women goody bag for her entry:

Marixs was our second week's winner:

Daya took the competition to a new level with her winning photo in the third week:

The fourth week was difficult because the majority of the entries came pouring in to meet the deadline. Of the entries that made it in by August 30 for our weekly pick, we chose one of Jenny12x's submissions.

And then we had the extremely difficult choice of picking an overall winner for the iPad 2. With nearly 100 photos on the board, it was no easy task, and the judging panel discussed until the last moment. Ultimately, it was LadyMaCe86's photo with the caption, "Sunny afternoon in the park, trying to teach my dog Lola how to play poker. I think she was more interested in my homemade PokerStars cookies, though!"

All entries from female PokerStars players earned them tickets to a $500 women-only freeroll to be held on September 8. (Note: For any players who pinned their photos on Pinterest and weren't re-pinned to the PokerStars Summer board, please tweet at us @PokerStarsWomen with your PS screen name and link to your Pinterest photo so you receive the freeroll ticket.)

Thanks to all who participated and checked out our photos. Our boards will remain on Pinterest, and we will update them with more pictures of PokerStars Pros, parties, and events around the world. And who knows... we might be talked into another competition!
