1. Prizes will only be given to recipients in the US and Canada. Sorry international readers, but its really tough for us to ship overseas and deal with customs and all that!

2. You can only sign up for our newsletter ONCE, so this basically limits entries to one per person.

3. All winners will need to get in touch with Inhabitat within ONE WEEK of announcement of winners in order to receive their prizes. Failure to respond to email or newsletter messages that you have won a prize will result in forfeiture of that prize to someone else.

    I’d love to win this one…I never win anything…lol. At any rate, I love this site….really informative. A friend and I were recently discussing a project we want to undertake (this is one of those possibly decade long projects). We’re going to GREENOVATE (thank you, Planet Green channel) his home, and we need more efficient ideas as to not only save on energy costs and utilize green technologies, but LEED certification would be nice. Please email me your ideas, as I’m sure I’ll find plenty on your site.

    Not to be taken as a diatribe against inhabitat, as this open forum is much needed, but I do have a question: why do we have to entice people to come out of the woodworks with STUFF for a “green” contest? I find on my University campus this huge market for “green” that revolves around pointless STUFF and it’s a) just more waste and b) inspiring knee-jerk reactions from me; sorry if it’s misguided here.

    But may I propose a contest as a social experiment to see who can design the most “green” prize that is willing to entice the general population?
