Followers Have Chance to Win a Personalized iomoi Tray and Tour de France-Inspired Bicycle Rings Made With LuciteLux(R)

MEMPHIS, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- Lucite International, owner of the LuciteLux® acrylic brand, today announced a Pinterest giveaway to celebrate its second annual JUST IMAGINE Awards program. Followers of the brand's JUST IMAGINE Awards board on Pinterest have a chance to win the grand prize of a personalized iomoi tray made in the United States with LuciteLux®. Additionally, nine other winners will receive a Tour de France-inspired bicycle ring made in England with Perspex® (known as LuciteLux® in North America).

"LuciteLux® is the go-to acrylic for today's top designers, from interior design and jewelry to furniture, lighting and architecture," said Chris Robinson, business manager for Lucite International. "With this contest, our followers have a chance to own a piece created by one of the many designers from around the world who bring their creative visions to life with our material."

The iomoi tray combines colorful designs with the simple beauty of clear LuciteLux® to make a true statement piece to fit any décor. Element Jewellery in England's Hebden Bridge, an artistic village that became part of the Tour de France route in 2014, created the playful rings out of yellow Perspex® (known as LuciteLux® in North America).

Entrants must create a Pinterest board entitled "JUST IMAGINE with LuciteLux®" containing a photo of the JUST IMAGINE Awards logo and the phrase, "justimagine" between now and September 15, 2014 to be eligible. They can post other images of products made with LuciteLux® to their boards or rename an existing board "JUST IMAGINE with LuciteLux®" and pin the logo image.

"We created the JUST IMAGINE Awards as a way to honor the diverse group of designers who embrace the possibilities of working with LuciteLux®," said Robinson. "We hope that entrants in the Pinterest giveaway will see a wide-range of pins showcasing what's possible when designers harness the power of LuciteLux®."
