‘Tis the Season for Contests

November 25, 2008 at 5:25 pm 4 comments

There sure are a few great contests running right now! Check out the following:

Give a Better Life – You watch the video for the eligible charities – then vote for the one you want to win. The winning charity gets $5,000 and you are eligible to win a coffeemaker (I imagine for the long nights you’ll be spending deciding which charity you think is most deserving – thanks Strutta 😉

Netchick’s $500 Cash-giveaway – Tanya (aka Netchick) is drawing for a $500 prize. Each time you pledge $25 to support her for the Team Diabetes half marathon, you are get one entry for the draw.

Jiibe Connection Contest: Help Claire Find the Workplace She’ll Love. You match a job seeker “Claire” with her ideal workplace (based on the quick videos on the site). One voter will win an Ipod Nano. (Capulet + Strutta)

$6,000 Contest from John Chow and XR.com – To enter the contest, you write a blog post review of XR.com. (See John’s site for full directions.) The winner will receive $5,000 for the charity of their choice plus an additional $1,000 so they can buy something nice for the holidays.

DreamBank Giving and Getting SurveyDreamBank is running a quick (three-minute survey) about how you feel about giving and getting gifts. Complete the survey and you can win an iPod Nano or the equivalent contribution to their DreamBank dream. (Capulet)

Bear Your SoulForestEthics, Greenpeace and Sierra Club are asking you to “Bear Your Soul”. Sound scary? It isn’t. Basically, you just submit a photo to the Flickr group which: tells the BC Government why it needs to honour its agreement to conserve the Great Bear Rainforest. (You could submit a picture of yourself holding a sign, frolicking in the woods (er, tastefully), or one that shows the beauty of the wilderness. ) Prizes include a Grizzle Bear tour and $50 Itunes cards. (Individuals can also send a message to the government of British Columbia, urging them to keep their promise to concerned citizens in BC and around the world by signing an online petition.) (Capulet)

(Full disclosure: the last 3 are companies/contests I have some involvement with (am working with and/or to promote), so there’s a little self-interest there. But only a little.)

Are there any I’ve missed? (Likely!) Comment and tell me what they are.

    Thanks for linking to our contests too! Woohoo!

    If you look closely at the Jiibe one, it was built by Capulet Communications, using Strutta software. We’re extremely proud of both of the contests we have on your list.

    @Tanya good luck with your contest!

    @Jordan you too – good luck! I knew about Capulet. Should have mentioned that they are doing the last 3 contests (updated now)! But I didn’t notice the Strutta connection for Jiibe – cool beans! Thanks for letting me know.
