Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
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 successful promotional campaigns quickly.
How do I set up a contest giveaway?
Go to our order form and select Contest Giveaways. Rates vary based by duration which run from one week ($50) to four weeks ($125). Sponsors determine the prize, the number of winners, the start date, etc.
How are winners chosen?
A sponsor receives an email at the conclusion of the contest with instructions on how to generate the winners. After the winners are generated (from a single button click) sponsors have the option to either contact the winners through All About Jazz or via their own email.
Why should I sponsor a contest giveaway?
Giveaways are actively promoted at All About Jazz and Jazz Near You and will raise the awareness of your music (album giveaway) or your upcoming event (ticket giveaway). Giveaways are also fun and a great way to quickly build a musician following or raise the awareness of your company or organization.
How does the beta program work?
Giveaways are free to sponsors during the beta period as we ramp up the contest platform. During the beta period, All About Jazz will build your contest page, though sponsors are responsible for generating the winners and prize fulfillment.
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. We use email for prize fulfillment.
Do I have to furnish the sponsor with my mailing address?
It depends. If you won a pair of concert tickets, they will most likely be left for you at will-call. 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.
