Some sellers in the Etsy community experienced technical problems that prevented them from entering yesterday.
I'm trying to enter the 2022 Etsy Design Awards and filled out the form but when I click "NEXT" on the bottom of the page, it brings me to the exact same page but the form is empty! I'm going round in circles.
I looked at previous threads and it seems a recurring issue as every year people complain of the same problem! Some people recommend trying different browsers. I tried Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome but no success.
Tried several times to download the online entry form with no success. Will try later!
I am having the same issue. I just tried to enter and it did the same thing. I thought maybe it was my internet or something so I entered the details again. I am not finding any solution to this. Has anyone submitted successfully?
It appears the issue may be related to uploading pictures of the item.
Trying to enter Etsy Design Awards but the form keeps telling me to enter 3 images. Other than the box for the URL of my product and a box for a photo of myself I can't find where to enter the 3 images. It keeps sending me "back."
I feel foolish for going a round and around but I'm old and maybe not looking in the right place? Can anyone help me?
Hopefully Etsy will get the hiccup sorted out and these sellers will be able to submit their entries - if you've thrown your hat in the ring, let us know in the comments below and share a link to the item you submitted!
