SPCA Auckland Upcycle Challenge

Are you up for the challenge? 

We’re challenging animal lovers to get creative while supporting their local SPCA Op Shop.

Upcycling is the art of transforming an item by giving it a new purpose, or a new lease of life!

Simply transform a piece of clothing, or a piece of furniture or homeware that you have purchased from an SPCA Auckland Op Shop, enter online and you'll be in with a chance to win!

This year we have two categories – clothing and furniture/homeware.

Each category will have a winner and a runner-up. The winner of the furniture and homeware category will win an overnight stay for two at Jet Park hotel, including breakfast. The winner can choose to stay at the Auckland Airport hotel or go on a mini-break and stay at the Rotorua hotel! The winner of the clothing category will win a $100 Animates voucher, and the runner-up in both categories will win a $100 Nestle prize-pack with lots of goodies. 

The best entries will be selected by our judges and shared on the SPCA Auckland Facebook page. Our supporters will then vote for their favourite transformation, and the one with the most Facebook likes will win the prize!

So let your imagination run wild...

How to enter:

  1. Visit your local SPCA Auckland Op Shop and purchase a piece of clothing, furniture or homeware (remember to keep your receipt as proof of purchase).
  2. Take a 'before' photo of your item.
  3. Get creative and transform it into something amazing!
  4. Take an 'after' photo of your completed project.
  5. Enter online by Sunday, 17 September at 11.59pm.

Get your friends to vote!

A panel of SPCA Auckland judges will select a group of finalists from all entries submitted. Photos of these transformations will then be posted on the SPCA Auckland Facebook page on Friday, 22 September 2017. Get your friends and family to vote for your project as the photo with the most likes will be the winner!
