One fun part of sweepstaking is finding, and even winning, cool stuff that you might not see just anywhere. Those things that spark that "Omg! I need one of those!" response, even though you may never have seen it before. "I LOVE this!" is another response that often spontaneously occurs.
Today's sweepstakes offer some of these things. A Jack-O-Lantern Zippo? Yesssss! It's so cool (after all, it IS Zippo!), and is still a perfect Halloween accessory! Then there is the leather messenger bag (does anything say "cool" more than leather?). And a 3D printer? Omg. The cool stuff my family and I could create with it!
Then, too, there are still the things we'd always use, yet would be just so excited to win... like grocery store gift cards!

Some contests and sweepstakes make an annual appearance. They become something to look forward to. Each year, the excitement builds, while waiting to see what this year's event will bring. Some of these include the "HGTV Dream Home," "Blog Cabin," and "Lay's Do Us a Flavor."
Today, a special Wednesday contest (with contests usually reserved for Sundays), brings another such annual event.
What is this event, you ask? Well, it's the Doritos Super Bowl ad contest! If you watch the Super Bowl, you'll inevitably see what fun and creative things the year's contestants have devised. It's a lot of fun to watch, yet, if you'd like your shot at it, now is your chance to enter!
For this contest, you are asked to create a video commercial of exactly 30 seconds in length, featuring Doritos brand tortilla chips (preferably in the red - Nacho Cheese, or blue - Cool Ranch, bag).
Doritos is offering contestants a "Toolkit" for use in creating these videos. The kit includes things like logos and shots of Doritos bags, music to use without infringing on anyone's copyright, video clips, and much more. Of course, these are only for use in this contest, and nothing more.
Videos will be judged based upon the following criteria:
Originality and Creativity – 40%
Adherence to Creative Assignment – 30%
Overall Appeal (to the general public) as a Doritos Super Bowl Ad – 30%
As always, your entry must be your own original work. Any people or animals in your video must have a signed release form, and all animals must be treated humanely. This is basically geared towards a family audience, so keeping this in mind should keep you on the right track. Copyright issues are avoided by not including anything that represents a logo other than Doritos, as well as by not using any famous architecture in any scene, and the like.
See rules for further details on technical requirements, etc.
There will be 30 semi-finalists, then from these, 10 finalists will be chosen. One of these 10 finalists will win, as determined by votes from the general public. Of the remaining 9 finalists, sponsor will then choose one as the first prize winner.
Prizes are as follows:
* 20 semi-finalists will each receive $1,000 USD.
* 10 finalists will each receive a five night trip for two (January 28, 2015 – February 2, 2015) to the Super Bowl in Glendale, AZ, on February 1, 2015.
* 8 finalists will each receive $25,000 USD. Total ARV, including game trip package, $30,500.

Sunday, October 12, 2014
If you've ever watched entertainment news, then you know how important those box office numbers are for new movies. These numbers can dictate if a movie is a hit, or a flop. If you've ever paid any attention to those numbers at all, then today's contest might just be for you!
This contest asks contestants to offer their predictions for specific movies, opening in November. Predictions are for the total for each movie, covering the entire opening weekend - Friday through Sunday. Amounts are for U.S. box office numbers, only.
Your entry will include all weekends fully within the month of November, each with its own releases. Entries are then "scored", based upon the difference between a prediction and the actual amount. The smaller the gap between the two, the lower the score. In the end, the person with the lowest total score, wins!
* Winner receives "The Office" (US) Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD.
