Everybody likes when they get to pick their own prize! So we’re running a contest where the winner gets to pick up to $50 worth of genre stuff from Amazon. Pick whatever genre related items (DVDs, books, toys, etc.) you’d like that are sold and shipped by Amazon.com as long as what you pick totals up to $50 or less.
To enter this contest you must do something for us, however. Don’t worry, it’s not difficult. Just submit a recording of your voice giving an introduction to our podcast. In fact, we’ll even provide you with the script of what to say (below). You can use the SpeakPipe gadget on our home page, use our voicemail line with your phone, use Skype to leave a message with us, or record your own voice and send us the file via our e-mail feedback address.
The contest begins today. Submissions must be received by Friday April 17, 2015 at 11:59 PST.
One entry per person. This contest is open to listeners residing in the United States. Read on for the fine print and contest details…
Submitting your voice with the information in the Eligible Entry section below permits your name to be entered in a random drawing where one prize winner receives up to $50 worth of genre merchandise (winners choice) from Amazon. The final call on what is and isn’t genre related will be determined by the hosts of Tuning in to Sci Fi TV when the winner submits their list of items.
Submit a voice recording (via SpeakPipe, voicemail, Skype or your own computer) to Tuning in to Sci Fi TV with the following content, which includes a header that we will not play on the show and will only use to contact you. The main body of the recording will be used to introduce the show in which you are announced as the winner. Any submissions not chosen randomly as the winner may be used in future podcasts.
Header for internal use only: “My name is <your name here> from <your home town>. My e-mail address is <clearly state your e-mail address.”
Main body of introduction: “Hi, this is <your name — feel free to add brief additional identifying information if desired such as a podcast you host or a web site or anything you wish> and you’re listening to Tuning in to Sci Fi TV, the viewer’s guide to genre television.”
Be sure to include your First and Last Name, your Home town and your Email Address to contact you if you win. Please note that we will not use or share your e-mail address or personal information with anyone for any reason. It is only used for us to contact you should you win.
Any entry not containing all of these required pieces will not be considered in the drawing. If you are unsure if you’ve met the qualifications, feel free to contact us directly and ask. If you didn’t meet the qualifications with an entry, you can submit another.
