$54,000 worth of Prizes on Offer in the ProBlogger Birthday Bash Competitions!

Problogger-Birthday-BashOver the next week here at ProBlogger I’m planning to give away over $54,000 (USD) of cash and prizes in the ProBlogger Birthday Bash! (you can see the full list of prizes here).

You heard me right – over $50,000 in cash and prizes have been donated by generous sponsors to this event and every cent of them will be going to ProBlogger readers in the coming 7 days. The prizes will be given out over a number of days through a variety of different competitions.

There are 115 sponsors (give or take a couple that we’re finalizing) – some are offering multiple prizes (one is offering something for up to 500 of you – which pushed up the prize pool value). Prizes range from getting theme songs composed for podcasts/videos (something I wouldn’t mind winning myself), to iPods, to logo designs, to magazine subscriptions, to books, to cash and vouchers and so much more. Prizes values range from just a few dollars in value to thousands of dollars.

Here’s how it’s going to happen….

But first – to increase your chances of taking home some of these prizes you’re going to want to subscribe to my RSS feed so that you’re up to date with the different competitions that will be running (note – this is not a condition of entry – just a way to make sure you get all the updates you’ll need to participate).

The details:

  • Prizes will be won given away in a series of different rounds over the next week – mostly between Friday and Sunday (a little weekend fun).
  • Tomorrow I’ll be posting a full list of prizes that have been donated. They’ll include both the prizes and who they’ve been donated by.
  • We’ll also launch the competition tomorrow with the first round of giveaways – the purpose of this first competition is simply to spread the word of the competition.
  • The competitions will have a range of entry criteria. Some will simply be asking you to leave a comment to say that ‘you’re in’. Others will require you to write a post on a particular topic or in a particular style (like my Group Writing Projects).

Lara Kulpa will be helping me to administrate the competition (in fact she’s doing most of it). Lara has run her web consultancy for several years  – if you’re looking for Web Design, Marketing advice (online or off), Social Media Consulting, SEO, or anything related, you should probably get in touch with Lara – she’s great!

So stay tuned – we’ll post the first competition tomorrow and will continue to update you on all of the opportunities to win in the days that follow.
