Frequently Asked Questions: Sponsors

How does it work?

An All About Jazz giveaway takes most of the heavy lifting out of running promotional giveaways. From the entry experience to prize fulfillment, giveaways help you run a successful promotional campaign at the world's most active jazz music website.

How do I set up a contest giveaway?

Just contact us. Contests can start at any time, run for four consecutive weeks and will receive 4-5 weekly newsletter mentions. Sponsors determine the prize, the number of winners, the start date, etc.

How are winners chosen?

The sponsor receives an email at the conclusion of the contest with instructions on how to generate and notify the winners.

Why should I sponsor a contest giveaway?

Giveaways are actively promoted at All About Jazz, at Jazz Near You and in the weekly newsletter (sent every Thursday to our 87,000+ subscribers). Contests greatly raise the awareness of your brand--they are also a fun and a easy way to engage All About Jazz readers.

Frequently Asked Questions: Contestants

Do I need an All About Jazz account to enter?

Yes, you will need to sign up or sign in to enter.

How do I enter a contest giveaway?

Go to our contest landing page and once you find a contest or contests to enter, simply click the green ENTER button associated with the contest. You'll receive a confirmation that you have been successfully entered. If you don't see a green ENTER button associated with a contest, it means you're already entered in it.

Does it cost me anything to enter?

No. Entering a contest is free to members.

How do I know if I have won?

Contest winners are randomly chosen then emailed by the contest sponsor with instructions on how to claim the prize.

Is my email address shared with the sponsor?

Only the winner's email addresses are shared with the sponsor.

Do I have to furnish the sponsor with my mailing address?

It depends. If the music prize is digital, you'll be given an access key or password. They'll need your physical address for hard product like a box set.

Who will send my prize and how long will it take to receive it?

In all cases the sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment.

Can I return or exchange my prizes?

No, all prizes are final. If you do not want it, we suggest giving it to a jazz loving friend.
