About the Competitions and Giveaways category

For Vendors

To post a giveaway, contact a @staff member and they will assist you. Your giveaway, at a minimum, should contain a description of or link to the prize, the requirements for entry, the date that the giveaway will end, and the method of choosing a winner. It is also highly suggested that you include the number of participants needed in order to do a giveaway (if that is something you would like to require) as well as the maximum number of entries each participant is allowed to make. Rules to participate cannot require external actions, such as liking a facebook page or something like that. You can mention them in the rules but they must be marked with (optional).
