New Contest: Pax Pass Giveaway
We haven’t even announced the winner of our previous contest and we already have another one for you! We think you’ll agree, this is our biggest yet!
What’s this big prize? How about two passes for PAX Prime in Seattle August 26-28th, 2011? That big enough for you?
Based on our last contest you might expect that we want our constituents to engage in some sort of competition. A prize this big might even call for a duel to the death! It was mentioned, but we decided it might lead to a decline in listenership. Even though this is a huge prize, contesting to win it is very simple. All you need to do is go onto iTunes, write a review for our podcast, good or bad, it does not matter, email us a copy of your review for verification purposes with the title “#PaxPassGiveaway” in the subject line of your EMAIL, NOT in your iTunes review. That hash-tag/pound-sign is simply to make categorizing all the incoming emails easier for us. I repeat, do not use that title in your iTunes review. On the day following the final day of eligible entry, a name from the list of submitted entries will be chosen randomly.
Of course, there are a few things to keep in mind. We are only giving away passes for the event. All other expenses are on your own accord and your own dime. Trust me, if we could afford to pay your way, we’d both be going. Please, only one entry per contestant. Multiple entries from the same email address, or entries from multiple email addresses verifiably belonging to the same person, WILL BE REJECTED. This is not out of spite towards anyone who really wants to win, but to maintain fairness amongst all contestants. This contest is open to all listeners, regardless of geographic location, but again, we are only providing entrance to the event, not a means of travel to Seattle, nor accommodations. We are not Bioware.
To answer a couple quick potential FAQ’s:
If you’ve already entered an iTunes review for us in the past, no second review is necessary. Simply email us with a reference to your posted review (screen name, date of post, & a verifiable email will suffice). You will be eligible just the same as someone who enters after the date of this posting.
Why iTunes and not Zune Marketplace? iTunes has the largest user base of podcast distribution services the world over. Also, having reviews consolidated to one source makes things infinitely easier for us to collate all the reviews. If, for some reason, you’re an Apple hater and you hate innovation, iTunes is free to download, sign up for, use, and, should you so choose, to delete.
If there are any further questions regarding this or any other contests, feel free to ask in the Comments section, in the forums, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
