Win an iPad Mini!

POSTED: August 27th, 2014

Hey everyone, we’re giving away a brand new iPad Mini! I’m sure you’re thinking “Sounds great, but what do I need to do to qualify?” Well, that’s a good question. All you need to do is create an account here on and share some video tutorials between September 1st and 30th. Depending on how many videos you post, you can multiply your total number of entries (see below).

Earning Entries

1 video = 1 entry
2 videos = 3 entries
3 videos = 6 entries
4 videos = 10 entries
5 videos = 15 entires

What if you post more than 15 videos? We’ll multiply the number of posts by 3 to get your total number of entries. So let’s say you’ve posted 60 videos, you’ll have 180 chances at winning the iPad, pretty sweet, eh?


There are a few, uh, provisos. Ah, a couple of quid pro quo. Here we go:

  1. You must be a resident of the US and 18 years of age or older to participate
  2. Share only tutorial videos. Cat videos, your review of the latest Weezer album, or your light saber battle with an iguana are all awesome… but they don’t really belong on this site.
  3. The videos you post MUST come from a channel you control. We might ask you to verify this, and the winner will be required to prove he/she has access to the YouTube or Vimeo account the videos have come from.
  4. Keep it clean
  5. Check out our getting started page and our submission guidelines to make the best of this.

That’s pretty much it. If you win we’ll contact you with the email address that you used to register on this site. GOOD LUCK!

See the official rules here…



There’s a good chance this contest could be on! Go take a look at some of the other epic things you can win… like free rent!? Unless of course we win it first ;-).
