to mark the launch of the site, there are running a national contest, “Small Businesses, Big Dreams: Furnished by IKEA”, which will award ikea makeovers to an entire community of businesses.

it’s a video contest where small business owners will post their video entries on the website showing why their main street businesses deserve a makeover. in addition, there is an interactive component where people can log on to the site and vote for their favorite video.

entries will be judged on creativity and the community vision of the participating businesses. the grand prize includes design expertise and furnishings, from ikea, of course, to help the winning businesses create spaces that will maximize functionality with stylistic customer appeal.

so get busy and win a makeover for your business.

    That’s true hollie. But i guess it’s due to the logistic of awarding a makeover in another country. I wish the other Ikeas will wake up and do some thing for the countries they are in too.

    I’m so sad this contest is only open to residents of the US. I know so many not-for-profit centers that could use this
