#winwithmichigan Terms and Conditions

1. How it Works

A photo contest in which you upload a picture onto your Instagram account demonstrating your welding skills using the hashtag #winwithmichigan and mentioning @totaltoolsaustralia. Your entries will be judged on two criterias:

  • Clean or technical welds - Are you a master of getting a rainbow of colours in your welds? Do your welds look clean enough to eat off of?
  • Constructions - Have you created anything cool by welding pieces of metal together?

A total of six entries will be shortlisted as finalists by Total Tools and handed over to Graham Stanton of Malmsbury Melted Metal to choose two winners. Graham is a welding instructor at Victoria University and is an expert when it comes to beautiful welds.

The #winwithichigan competition has two fantastic prizes up for grabs. The winner will win a Michigan Welding Co. MIG 180 Welder and welding accessories valued over $700! The runner up will win a Michigan Welding Co. 140 ARC TIG Welder and accessories worth over $230! Makes sure you FOLLOW our Instagram account @totaltoolsaustralia and use #winwithmichigan on your submission. Competition commences 23/02/2017 at midday AEST and will conclude on March 14 at midday AEST. Winners will be announced in the following week. Good luck!

2. Eligibility
