FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I received confirmation that you received my entry, why wasn't my entry posted?
Our system does not automatically post entries as they are submitted. We select the best entries to post. All submissions may not be posted due to space limitations, and it is up to Ohdeedoh to post the strongest submissions.
I made a mistake in my submission, how do I change my contest entry?
Please re-submit your entry.
How are winners chosen?
Winners are chosen by readers votes. To vote, readers must be registered with Apartment Therapy (register here).
How do you handle voting fraud?
Evidence of excessive multiple votes from a single IP address will be deleted.
My room was previously featured on Apartment Therapy/Ohdeedoh — am I still eligible to enter?
Yes, readers who previously shared their rooms with the community are eligible. However, you may only enter the room in one Apartment Therapy/Ohdeedoh contest.
I've already submitted my room for consideration for an Ohdeedoh Tour or My Room post, — am I still eligible to enter?
