What’s the deal with creating challenges?

This is the first blog in our new series about challenge creation. One of the coolest features in ShopLook is the ability to create and participate in user challenges. We’ve always had “official” challenges created by the ShopLook team, but the addition of user-created challenges has tapped into the creative chops of our user community and opened up a fountain of ideas that serve as inspiration for everyone. 



All users can participate and enter challenges, which means that you’ll never run out of ideas again! Besides the inspiration that challenges provide, participation is also a great way to connect with others in the user community.


What is the point of these challenges?

While official challenges offer the chance to add trophies to your profile, participating in challenges is about much more than just winning. Winning can be fun, but the real benefit to participating in challenges is the chance to interact with other users that share similar interests.



Official and user-created challenges provide the opportunity to share and gain new inspiration.


What is the difference between "official" and "user" challenges?

Two to three times a week, the ShopLook team launches official challenges that can be identified by the official flag. Winners of first, second and third place are assigned at the end of each challenge and trophies are added to the winning users' profiles. User-created challenges are exactly that - challenges that were dreamed up and created by your fellow ShopLookers.


Our premium subscribers can not only participate in challenges, but they can also create them! We never cease to be amazed by the ideas that come out of our user community, and we aren’t ashamed to say that a few of the ShopLook official challenges have been inspired by themes we’ve seen in our user-created challenges.



So, why create your own challenges?

  • If you've got great style inspiration - pass it on!

  • Become an style influencer in the ShopLook community

  • Engage with others in the ShopLook community and make some new friends along the way
