The Official Don's Magic and Sundry Sticker Contest

This contest is one I've been promising on Twitter to work the detail out on and finally announce for a while now, so it's about time I got on it.

So, here it is: The Official Don's Magic and Sundry Sticker Contest!
  • Four times a year, right before the prerelease of a new set, I will draw one winner from the eligible pool of contestants who will win $20 in store credit to my store. [NOTE: accepting store credit requires that you establish an account at my store, but doing so is free.]
  • To become eligible, you must submit to me (via Twitter to @TheSundry or email to TheSundry at gmail dot com) a photo of you in some way sporting one of my stickers at an official MTG event (could be a regular sanctioned event, an FNM, a launch party, a prerelease, a SCG Open event, etc).
  • The sticker can be on your person (e.g. stuck to your shirt) or on something you are carrying prominently with you (your deck box, trade binder, box of tokens & dice, etc).
  • The photo should include your face for ease of identification. There should also be some way of verifying the date & event (e.g. if you're at the prerelease for something, you could hold up your prerelease promo).
  • The contest resets at every prerelease, so you must re-enter each time a new set rolls out if you want to stay in the drawing. [For reference, the next prerelease would be for Avacyn Restored and will be held Sat/Sun April 28/29 2012, so the drawing for the current cycle will be made on Friday, April 27]
  • Photos become my property, and may be used in advertising campaigns or just for the fun of it on my blog (I probably won't do much with them, but I'm stating that now just in case).
  • I reserve the right to reject photos for any reason (most likely because I  felt they were in some way inappropriate). If yours is rejected, however, I will let you know and give you a chance to submit another.
I reserve the right to modify/add/remove rules to this contest at any time should I see the need arise. [Example: I could easily see a secondary prize for most creative photo coming out of this if people decide to go that route with their pictures!]

If you are not sure what stickers I am talking about, you need to read this blog entry next.

As always, if there are any questions, Tweet to me, email me, or leave a comment here on the blog!

ADDENDUM: Now that I am running my own WPN events, I need to add the following rule:
  • The official MTG event cannot be one of the ones I host myself. Kinda defeats the purpose of advertising my site for me when I'm doing that myself :-)
