The fine folks over at the Attack of the Craft Etsy team are running a "Simon Says" contest to give away an iPad. I know these guys, they are a cool and unique bunch of goth/punk/alternative crafters, and this is definitely NOT a scam, unlike those Facebook links that sometimes pop up on your feed.
Grand prize is a first-generation iPad or $300 Visa gift card... honestly, I'm not sure which one I'd choose. I don't yet have an iPad and I've been drooling over them for a while, but there is definitely something to be said for cold hard cash. :)
Here are the rules, copied from this thread on the team forum: http://www.attackofthecraft.com/stage/showthread.php?t=5759 Note: You do NOT have to be a member of this team to participate!
"Contest Starts: Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Contest Ends: Saturday, May 21, 2011
Objective: We are going to play our own version of Simon Says. There will be 40 daily "tasks" assigned over 40 days. You must complete 30 of these 40 "tasks" to be entered in the random drawing for the iPad. This means you can skip 10 tasks, or come in a little late on the contest and still be able to participate. The drawing will be RANDOM, so anyone who has completed 30 tasks can win, not just the most "motivated" player
How does it work: Every day, we will post a new thread to this forum. This thread will have your "Simon Says Task" description. You will have 24 hours to complete the task, and post whatever "proof" is required for task completion. You will receive ONE point for each task you complete.
What kinds of tasks will be assigned: Anything and everything. Some photo scavenger hunts, some creative challenges, promotions for shops and AotC pimping, and lots of sillyness. If you're not a *crafter* you can still participate, as we will have no more than TEN craft related tasks. However, this means you have to complete ALL 30 remaining non-crafty tasks. But really, take a chance, try some crafting. You might surprise yourself.
How to win: There will be 40 tasks assigned. Every entrant who completes 30 tasks (receiving 30 points) will be added to the random drawing for the grand prize.
Your very own iPad (16 gig wifi FIRST GENERATION) or $300 Visa Gift Card, your choice.
Free month of banner advertising on AotC
500 pm limit and the ability to change your own title"
Good luck, everyone!
