The Wristband Competition

Posted on: May 28th, 2012 by joel

You remember that lovely yellow wristband you took away from Port80 2012? You didn’t throw it away did you?! Good. In which case, read on..

Update: if you haven’t got a wristband, you can still join in!

Wear It With Pride

The gist of the competition is this; keep wearing your yellow wristband and if you visit an unusual location etc (could be exotic like The Sychelles or more down to Earth such as Sue’s Cafe in Newport Market) then take a snap of you wearing your wristband and tweet it (just make sure you include the #port80 hashtag and @port80events tag.)

Each month* I’ll review your tweets & declare a winner. Prize is a free ticket to next year’s event.

*Update: Every once in a while, when I get round to it 😉

How does that sound?

Update: lost your wristband or never hand one but want to join in? 


p.s. yeah, I know the wristband will get a bit minging, but that’s half the fun 😉

p.p.s as of the 6th of July 2012, my wristband is still in pretty good shape 🙂

The Small Print

This aint exactly written in legal speak but…

  1. No cash prize alternative
  2. This is obvioulsy on the basis there is an event next year. I see absolutely no reason why not at the moment (indeed, I’m already looking at suitable venues).
  3. You can only win one ticket.
  4. A maximum of ten tickets will be handed out.
  5. It must be obvious from your photo that this is an offical port80 wristband, and not a couple of strands of spaghetti etc.
  6. The wristband needs to be on your wrist in the photo.
  7. The wristband needs to be attached to your person (this could be dangerous!)
