UPDATE: We have our winner. Jeffery Lawler, AKA Canyon over at Patreon, was the winner of our $25 contest.
We’re planning on doing something similar next year, with maybe a little something extra as our newsletter continues to grow. Hope everyone had a happy holiday!
Hi everyone. I absolutely love the holidays. That’s why at Tellest, every year, we’re going to try to do our best to spread the cheer.
This year, we’re going to start small. We’re opening a very simple contest where you can enter to win a $25 electronic gift card to Amazon. You can’t go wrong with that – it’s like we just gave you a fail-safe gift!
So, here are the rules of this contest:
1. What do I do?
Tell us your favorite thing about Tellest. It can be a particular piece of art, or a book you really enjoyed. It can be a character that speaks to you. There are no limits, all you have to do is tell us your favorite Tellest thing before 12:01 AM on Christmas Day (EST)!
2. How do I enter?
That’s easy! All you have to do is shoot us an email! In the menu bar, there is a button that you can hover over, labeled “Connect” – you can either click that, or select “Contact Us” from the drop down menu. Let us know your preferred email address when you send us your favorite thing. That’ll give us an idea of how to reach you if you win!
3. Bonus Entries!
We want to give our biggest fans a little boost for being so helpful to us this first big year. So we’re giving anyone who is a part of our newsletter / mailing list an extra entry. And, if you want to join the mailing list before you enter this contest, you’ll totally qualify. You can find a Newsletter widget on the sidebar, or you can go to that “Connect” button in the menu bar to see the “Tellest Newsletter” in the drop down.
But that’s not all. We’ve had a couple of other big supporters in the past year. People who have done a considerable amount of work helping to make us look good. These are our Kickstarter backers and our patrons over at Patreon. If you’re one of these, you get another boost in the form of a bonus entry. And just like the newsletter, it’s not too late to join until the contest is over! While the Kickstarter is over, our campaign at Patreon is ongoing. You can join it for as little as one penny a month! Under that “Connect” button, you can see the link for our Patreon campaign.
In both of these cases, make sure when you send us your entry email that you let us know what your username is on Kickstarter or Patreon, so we can easily identify you!
Note: You must send an email as per item number 2 to qualify. You are not automatically entered just for being on the mailing list or being a kickstarter backer or patron.
4. The Drawing.
Between Christmas Day and 11:59 PM on the 26th of December (EST), we will plug all of the entrants into a spreadsheet, making sure that bonus entries are considered as well. We’ll use a random number function to determine who our winner is, and announce it on the website in a follow-up to this post. After that, we’ll talk to the winner about where best to send their gift card!
If there are any questions at all about this contest, let us know. We’ll try to be as transparent as possible with everything. We just want to make sure everyone has a good time with it!
