Copywriting Contest – $10,000 in Prizes Up for Grabs

Posted By Darren Rowse 15th of May 2007 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

Brian at Copyblogger has just announced a cool group copywriting project which I’m sure many of you will enjoy competing in.

It’s all about creating irresistible offers using landing pages.

There are $10,000 in prizes up for grabs and it will be a judged competition (I’m one of the judges – no bribes will be taken…. unless they’re really good).

Get full details of the competition at Copywriting Contest: $10,000 in Prizes for Irresistible Offers

  1. How many ad networks/services are there?…

    Following my last post where I questioned the value of building an ad engine for my own purposes, I began…

  2. I’m still trying to figure out how to make a landing page.

  3. Maybe I missed it somewhere in the article, but I think they goofed on one aspect of the entire competition…

    If you win, you get good things.

    If you submit and don’t win, what do you get?

    They may be failing to convert the readers to participants / competitors because there’s no identifiable benefit to submitting unless you win the grand prize.

    Based upon the existing comments about “experienced copy people winning” I think this is a significant error.

    At least in your GWP’s (love the fact you use my initials here by the way)… there’s a stated benefit of getting a link published and some traffic.

  4. Roberta, there’s a link in the post that explains it step-by-step.

    Graydon, what you may be missing is that Darren’s group writing projects are not competitions, and this is. That’s why it’s called a contest.

    You may choose not to participate, but there’s no “goof” or “error.” It’s been designed this way, and response is quite healthy among those who want to compete.

    >>If you submit and don’t win, what do you get?

    Nothing except a learning experience, much like life. Nothing wagered, nothing gained.

  5. How irresistible?

  6. I love Copyblogger and although I’m not a Copy Writer (or any other writer for that matter), I’ll probably give it a try just because it’ll be fun.

    I would like to see them throw us losers a bone in the way of a link or two.


  7. Well that is a pretty cool contest. I doubt I’d win but it still sounds like fun to do anyway.

  8. I do agree with Graydon. It does seem like those who have the networks and beneficial affiliate skills may have the advantage over the little guy, as they can create the best offers.

  9. Well, participants allowed ,,outside US or not ?
    If yes then its great.

  10. The contest is very appealing to me and I’m sure a lot of people are going to submit their entries for a chance to win those very good prizes. However, Graydon and Rhys made a very interesting point though.

  11. Landing pages can be REALLY annoying, they all look the same! I did a little “Get Rich Quick” spoof landing-page a month or two ago: perhaps I should enter it for the comp :) The “action” is a little tricky to quantify though!


  12. ten grand is a huge amount though, i’m sure the competition is going to be real tough

  13. I hope I can think of something before the cut off date.

  14. wow nice amount of money!

  15. I am sceptical that expert copywriters will win these type of competition hands down and the little guy will not have a chance at all.
    But that may be the way the game is played.

  16. My take on this is that landing page is the most important aspect of a website and you need to tweak it seriously to get the most of it.
