Q: What is the difference between a SWEEPSTAKES and a CONTEST?
A: A sweepstakes, such as the UPLOAD CHALLENGE SWEEPSTAKES, is when you enter by simply registering on Worship the Brand within a certain time frame, and the prize winner will be selected at random the day after the entry period closes. To ensure fair selection, we’ll be using random.org. (Scroll down for all the rules/terms/conditions of the Upload Challenge Sweepstakes.)
A CONTEST is where we give a specific theme, and you upload work that pertains to that theme (i.e., candy, cleaning products, condiments, etc.) When you submit, it will be added to a special Contest Gallery. You will then ask your friends, family, fans, and social media followings to vote for your piece, and try to get as many votes as possible because the winner is selected from the top three vote-getters. Our guest curator will award a grand prize ($2,500), second place prize ($500), and third place runner up prize ($250). For more information, please be sure to read each contest’s rules carefully.
