Contest with Architectural Digest for Students and Faculty!

My name is Shelly Johnson, I am with the Integrated Marketing Department of Architectural Digest.  We are working in partnership with Clarisonic on a promotional design contest that might be of interest to your students.   
Details attached and at

From now until November 11th, we are asking design enthusiasts to submit a sketch/rendering/drawing of the ultimate in-home spa to be entered to win a designer consultation, plus one of two great prizes:

  • $15,000 toward spa renovation project
  • A week’s stay at Miraval

AD secured two designers, Laura Kirar and Clodagh, to serve as contest judges and provide inspiration and design tips along the way.  Entrants can visit the site and ask the judges a question about spa design — it’s like free mentorship and consultation!

Check out the microsite, which includes the following:

  • Meet the Designers:  More about the contest judges Laura Kirar and Clodagh, via bios, project slideshows, and video interviews.  Plus inspirational tips on creating the perfect spa and a forum to ask design questions.
  • Contest Entry:  Portal for readers to upload a sketch, rendering or drawing of the ultimate in-home spa to enter the contest.  Laura and Clodagh are going to pick their favorites with prizes worth up to $15,000.   Plus, visitors who vote on favorite designs will be entered to win a Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System.
  • Spa Inspiration (Coming Soon):  An article about the evolution of the in-home spa and a quiz to find your Spa IQ

Visit to enter.

We are encouraging all members of the design community to enter.  The winners could be featured in an upcoming advertisement in Architectural Digest!  Thank you for your time and good luck to any entrants.
