The contest will run June 20th-August 14th, and we'll announce the grand prize winner on Friday, August 22nd.  There will also be a prize for the People's Choice, the picture that gets the most likes over the 8 weeks. Make sure to view entries tagged #destinationbetsyandiya frequently to show support aka "likes" to your favorite photos. Think of each week -Sunday to Sunday - as a mini challenge part of the greater contest. One of our staff will be the judge each week and he/she will give three prompts for photo entries in the following week. By no means are these requirements, but rather fun things to interpret & include if you choose. The Deets: Rules:

The Inspiration Travel. Adventure. Culture. Place. Color. Ask Betsy what inspires her designs, and you're guarenteed to hear one of the previous words. One reason I believe people love our jewelry so much is because it's intended for a life well lived. It's evocative. It's accessible. It reflects the life the wearer wants to live, where he/she wants to go. Jewelry for the journey; the ever changing, sometimes rocky - but always thrilling - journey. It's with all this in mind that we're launching our summer Instagram photo contest. Summer days are ripe for adventure, exploration, and travel. Approach this contest thinking of betsy & iya jewelry as the ultimate companion. We want to see where your betsy & iya has been. The trips it's taken. The sights it's seen. The friends it hangs out with. Whether your destination is a park down the street for an impromptu picnic or across an ocean to explore a different country, we want your destination to always include betsy & iya. Judging:
  • Week 1 June 20-June 26: Ashley
  • Week 2, June 27-July 3: Barrie
  • Week 3, July 4-10: Suzy
