June 2013 Contest

June 2013 Contest

It’s that time again! Contest time! To kick off Summer right, and to celebrate Loot Palace’s second birthday (May 18th), we’ll be holding our first major contest of the year. Up to 8 people will walk away with Plunder Points.

The Most Important Man

This past winter, we quietly revamped the referral page, giving you a dashboard with valuable information to make it a little easier to refer new members. We also added a list of everyone you’ve referred to date.

When you earn points from the referral system, you will see “Referral Bonus” in your Plunder Points log.

In the Referral Dashboard, you’ll find ideas on how to promote your link, pre-coded web banners for your website, blog, or message boards. Just recently, we added a feature which allows you to easily email your friends and family directly from the website.

It’s been over a year since we’ve added any new banners to the referral banner or season banner pages. We are crowd sourcing this task on to our members, as a contest with over 90,000 Plunder Points in prizes!

How to Enter the Contest

You will need to be able to create images. Being creative helps, but if you aren’t creative, we’ll help you out with some good websites to create images on.

What kind of images do I need to create?

You will be creating web banners. You can see examples of our current web banners here.

Your final images should be any of the following sizes: 160×600, 250×250, 468×60, or 728×96.

How can I create images?

This is different for everyone. If you have Windows or a Mac, chances are it came with some basic image creation / editing tool. Windows has “Paint” for example. Below are a few programs you can use to create amazing images. Best of all, they are all free, or have a 30 day free trial, which will give you plenty of time to create your masterpiece!

The links above are only suggestions. You are welcome to use any software you want.

How many times can I enter the contest?

You can submit as many entries as you like, but they must be unique. Duplicate entries will be ignored.

Just remember we are looking for quality web banners, so make sure you are submitting good banners that meet the requirements found on this page.

What can I win?

1st Place 25,000 Plunder Points
2nd Place 12,000 Plunder Points
3rd Place 12,000 Plunder Points
4th Place 12,000 Plunder Points
5th Place 12,000 Plunder Points
3 Random People 8,000 Plunder Points

First prize is 25,000 Plunder Points. Four runner ups will also be picked and given 12,000 Plunder Points each. Finally, we will select 3 random individuals to win 8,000 Plunder Points, just by entering the contest!

Where do I submit my entry?

You will want to post them on any image hosting websites, and provide us a link by contacting us – make sure you select “Contest Submission” on the contact form to ensure that we see your submission. Here are some websites you can host images on for free.

When does it end?

You have until June 30th, at 11:59pm EST to submit your entry.

Even if you lack artistic talent, be sure to enter, as you could still win enough points to claim a $10 gift card.

Pretty cool, right?

    1. Yes, any approved images will be used in the gallery. We will also include a link to the creator’s profile with the banner to give proper credit.

  1. so when we finish the image, we go to any of those image pages to post it and how do we contact you? do we send you link of the page with my image? and another question, according to what I read, I can even enter like 50 images (of course, all different and original) made by me?
    Sorry for bothering, I just want to be really sure

    1. Hi Tron. Yes, basically you need to publicly host your images online, at any of the listed image hosting websites, or any other site really. As long as we can view your submissions, without creating an account, you can use it. Next, just email us a link through the contact page, and make sure you’ve selected Contest Submission from the dropdown menu, so we know it’s for the contest.

      You can enter as many times as you want, but that doesn’t guarantee a win, as we are looking for the best web banners for the referral pages.

    1. Yep. You can focus on a specific type of gift card, gift cards in general, “online rewards”, or anything that would properly describe Loot Palace or our reward choices.

    1. It really depends on the size. If they can’t be resized to look good at the sizes we specified, then we can’t use them.
