Our 2015 Reader Survey & Giveaway: It’s BIG!

This month, The Planthunter turns two! Over the past few years we’ve asked a lot of questions about life, with plants. Now we’d like to ask you what you think about life, with us! Yep, we’re holding a Reader Survey & Giveaway to coincide with our birthday.

To celebrate these milestones and to take stock, we’re holding a Reader Survey and Giveaway during November. We are inviting you to tell us a bit about yourself, why you read The Planthunter and what will keep you coming back.

As an added incentive to share your thoughts with us, we’ve gathered together a collection of beautiful, plant-inspired objects from some of the Australian designers, makers and retailers we love most. Readers who complete our survey will be entered into our giveaway for a chance to win one of 10 brilliant prizes.

Our Reader Survey involves around 35 questions and it should take you 10 minutes to complete. We would love to hear your thoughts on our website design, our content, how we can do things better and what you’d like to see in 2016!

The Deal:

  • The Reader Survey runs from today, the 4th of November until the 18th of November.
  • There are 10 prizes up for grabs, which will be drawn on the 20th of November. We’ll contact winners via email the same day.
  • Winners will be selected from survey participants at random – except where prizes are only available to participants located within a specific geographic region.
  • The survey is open to all readers but we can only ship prizes within Australia (and where indicated below, only within a local region).
  • Each supplier will mail prizes directly to the winner of their prize, so we will need to share winner’s details with the supplier.
