Thanks for posting this and all the other comps you do for the community. I really like my answer for this one but you never know what the judges are looking for.
Good luck to everyone entering.
Truth be told I doubt they go through each and every response. They probably randomly pick one, check to ensure the answer isn't inappropriate, and reward them a prize.
Technically that would be illegal. The reason the question exists is to make it a "game of skill" and not just luck in which case they need a difference license for the competition.
That said, I'm sure you're not far from the truth. ie, maybe they pick 20 to read and pick the best one of those or something…
My friend works for channel nine and say they just pick from the first 20 entries randomly
Yeah, having worked on a bunch of these kinds of promotions in the past, it’s highly likely that the “skill” part of this is basically “can write words”. It’s the bare minimum to avoid being considered a game of chance. Nobody is reading these to determine the quality of the response. It’s picked randomly and they double check to make sure it doesn’t say anything controversial.
Literally screw these words or less competitions and the bs loophole they are exploiting.
Hate everything about them.
Thanks for sharing
