Instagram Contest Giveaway: Show Us the Shoes Taking You Places

A consistent theme at Alt Summit is that the overnight success is a myth. As many entrepreneurs and creatives know, success involves a lot of hustle and a lot of pounding the pavement.

So, for our last week of Share Alt with a Friend Instagram contests, we're combining our love of shoes with a question: what shoes are taking you places? (Curious what shoes have taken attendees to past Alt events? Watch this video from CreativeBug on The Shoes of Alt.)

Did you have a lucky pair of shoes? Share them with us and tell the story, and maybe they'll take you and a friend to Alt Summer this June in Salt Lake City. 

Prizes: One first prize winner will receive two tickets to Alt Summer, June 9-12, 2015 in Salt Lake City. One for themselves and one for their tagged friend. Tickets are valid for Alt Summer 2015 and are transferrable. Once registered, standard transfer fees apply. Five second prize US-based winners will receive a goodie box filled with surprises from our archives and another box for their tagged friend (ten boxes total each week)! We love our sponsors and our maker community and we can’t wait to share gifts from past events with you.
