LDS Storymakers Show Your Love Contest

What’s more fun that two Presidents and a Groundhog? That’s right! The annual LDStorymakers Conference Show Your Love contest! Here is the post reposted from the Conference blog, thanks to author Don Carey. 

We’ve held this contest for several years now, and those who participated will tell you – it was fun and the prizes were well worth it.

So let’s break this down a little bit.  What’s at stake here?  What are we playing for?

Prizes: Three lucky people will win seats at a star-studded VIP table for Friday night’s dinner. Dust off your best manners, because you could be breaking bread with the special-est of our special conference guests. We’ll post the full list once we’ve gotten confirmation from everyone, but trust me-it’s going to be awesome!

But that’s not all – let me break it down for you.

First Place Prize:  Seat at the VIP table, a query critique, and two-page manuscript critique

Second Place Prize: Seat at the VIP table and a two-page manuscript critique

Third Place Prize: Seat at the VIP table

Fourth Place Prize: Query critique and 10-page manuscript critique

Fifth and Sixth Place Prizes: Query Critiques

So, what must you do to enter to win?

Blog about the Show Your Love contest and link back to this post. This is also worth 5 entries.

Become a fan of the LDStorymakers Conference Facebook page and invite 5 friends to become fans. This is worth 1 Entry (limit 5 entries).

Mention the conference, the contest, and Anne Perry’s keynote on Twitter. Either post the link in your tweet, or use the hashtag #storymaker13. This is worth 1 entry per day, up to 5 per week. (NOTE: The correct hashtag is #storymaker13 – without the trailing ‘s’ to give you use of that one extra character!)

Post the conference attendee badge on your site or blog.  This is worth 3 entries. You can get the code for this on the sidebar, to your right.  Here’s what the badge looks like:  


Leave us a comment in the original blog’s comment trail (  and tell us everything you’ve done.  You have from now until the stroke of midnight Utah time on February 28th to rack up as many points as you can. You must be a registered attendee of the conference to participate – and if you haven’t registered yet, you can do it right here. Attendees and presenters are eligible. We will announce the winner at the beginning of March. If your e-mail isn’t accessible through your Blogger profile, please leave it with one of your comments so we can contact you. Winning, and not knowing it, would be pretty rotten.

All right, people! Get busy! Win the dinner of a lifetime! Show your love, help us spread the word about the conference and Anne Perry’s Keynote!

I’ll be there, teaching classes and signing books. Hope you can be too!
