iTunes reviews often help new listeners decide if they want to listen to a podcast or not. To help encourage our listeners to leave us a review we’ve banded a bunch of great geeky podcasts together with a truck full of great prizes to be won. Make sure you clearly follow the rules and if you have any questions email us! All you need is iTunes and a free iTunes account. Winners will be chosen at random and may only win one prize per person.
Prizes (more prizes may be added)
$25 iTunes Gift Card * Complete Buffy Series Set * Buffy S8 comics (varied) * One Tree Hill Season 8 DVD *Merch Prize pack from Nutty Bites * Buffy action figures * Original Color drawing of character of choice by Claire from CarnyCast (limited to 1 character please!) * Doctor Who – TV Show Poster (Van Gogh’s Exploding Tardis) * Smallville Season 10 DVD * I Believe in Sherlock Holmes rubber bracelet * $10 Amazon Gift Card * Copy of “Heat Wave” (the first Castle book) * The Torchwood Yearbook * “Star Wars vs Star Trek” book * “Serenity: A Shepherd’s Tale” comic book
*To win the Complete Buffy Series Set you must have at least 50 entries.
- Anytime between March 15 and May 15th (ends at 11pm PST on the 15th) write an iTunes review for any or all of the shows listed below. It’s important that you listen to the shows and vitally important that you listen to some of the more recent episodes in order to leave real feedback.
- Email us at with the subject line “Geeky iTunes Review Contest” and put your name, your iTunes name and what podcast you left a review for. If you’re outside of the US please tell us which iTunes country you are (UK, Italy, etc). Feel free to leave your review in a foreign language but it’d be great if you sent us the translation! Also include your three top prizes (there is no guarantee you’ll win that prize).
- You get 5 entries for each podcast you leave a review for, so make sure you listen to as many as possible!
- Members of Between the Lines Studios and the participating podcasts may enter (but they can’t post reviews of their own podcasts).
- If you have dual accounts (i.e. an account for iTunes Canada and iTunes USA) you may only leave reviews on one iTunes page to be counted (though we’d love if you left it both places).
We know not everyone has iTunes, so here’s a way to score some entries (or get more if you’ve left reviews already). You may do each of these once. For each entry send us your name, the link to what you did (i.e. your tweet, your FB account, etc).
- Tweet about the contest (it must include a link to this page) – 1 Entry
- Post about the contest on FB (please make the entry public so we can verify) – 1 Entry
- Post about the contest on Pinterest (please link us to the board) – 1 Entry
- Post about the contest on Google+ (please link this page) – 1 Entry
- Play our promo on your own podcast – 5 Entries
