Going on Vacation With IB - July 2011 Contest
Summer is officially here in the Northern Hemisphere and tons of people are preparing for their annual family vacations. Whether you plan on enjoying a weekend of camping in your home town or plan on travelling somewhere half way across the world we want you to share what you learn!
The theme for the month of July is going to be travel and vacation related. So if you know of a few camping hot spots in your area or want to share an amazing resort you discovered in Mexico you are going to be able to increase your ad share for August.
If vacation hot spots aren't your thing, feel free to write about any summer Holidays to get the extra ad share. Each 'Vacation' or 'Holiday' article you write will give you an additional 1% ad share up to a maximum of 5% for the month of August.
Also, any article you write this month, regardless of the topic, will be given a point total, based off the number of words. If at the end of the month your point total is above 20 you will receive another bonus of 5% on your ad share. If your total is above 30 points, you will receive an additional 5% bonus, for a total bonus of 10% (5% from being over 20 points and 5% from being over 30 points).
This point bonus is separate from your topic bonus, so if you complete all the tasks in this contest, you will receive a total bonus of 15% to your ad share for the month of August 2011.
The writer with the highest point total will get a $100US gift certificate to Amazon, second place will get a $50US Amazon gift certificate and third place get a $25US Amazon gift certificate.
After you have completed your articles we ask that you send us an email (via the Contact Us page) with the titles of your themed articles so that we can verify them and give you your ad share in August 2011. Please try to send only one email as the more emails we receive the longer it is going to take us to read them all.
