UPDATED! Character Contest Rules & A MUCH Bigger Prize!

We’ve run two weeks of our character contest and it’s been fun. But we want MORE entries, so we’re giving you more time to create and post characters. We’re also increasing the prize!

First place is now a $50 Amazon gift card (woe!). 10 entries will unlock a $25 Amazon gift card second prize. If we get at least 20 entries, we’ll increase that prize from $50 to a $100 Amazon gift card. That will also unlock a third and fourth place prize of a $15 Amazon gift card EACH!

Contest now starts Sunday evening and runs for 2 weeks on Facebook and Twitter.

The rules are easy enough — create a character using our NeverEnding Character Builder and submit it with 1 – 2 sentence description or catch-phrase. Characters submissions must be posted as a reply to each week’s Twitter or Facebook by Thursday of that week. The top 10 characters that receive the most likes will be judged by the team at NeverEnding. Each Sunday a single winner from Facebook and another from Twitter will be announced and will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card. New Contest, New Winners. Every. Single. Week!

Please read the Full Rules after the image below.
