Competition Monday - Win ShopTo Points


Welcome to Competition Monday, our new weekly competition which awards you points for your account in exchange for contributing to the site.

Here is what you need to do to enter.

Competition: Review of the Week

The title explains it all really. Basically, all you need to do is choose a game to review and get writing. Once you are happy with your review then simply post it in the customer reviews section on the relevant product page. e.g if you are reviewing FIFA 13 then search for FIFA 13 on ShopTo.net and post your review under the customer review banner.

In order to make it easy for us to pick a winner please try to stick to around 500-700 words. Also, we are not really judging on spelling, paragraphs, punctuation and review length. So even if you have never written a review before and are not confident, then please try.

Once you have followed the simple instructions above then all you have to do is let us know in the comments field below what game you reviewed. We will then choose a winner based on our favourite review and post it up on the news site for everyone to see.

If you are chosen as the winner then you'll win a whopping 10,000 points for your ShopTo account. Depending on the number of entries, there will also be a prize for the runner up, which consists of 3,000 ShopTo points.

That's it really.

*Please note that the winner from last week will be announced at some point today*

Review of the Week - Terms & Conditions

- The winners of this competition will be picked each week based on their submitted review
- To enter you must post a review of your own words on the relevant product page for the game your are reviewing.
- To make things fair, if you win at any point within the month, then you'll not be considered again for a prize until the following month.

- There is no limit to the number of times you may post a review, so if you want to review more than one game feel free.
- The winners will be announced on the first Monday of each week.
- You must be at least 15 years of age or have consent of a parent or legal guardian to enter this competition, and residing in the UK.
- The prize consists of ShopTo 10,000 points which will be credited to the winners account. There is no cash or prize alternative and the prize is non-transferable.

I think it's fair we ask for reviews with your own words. We do check just to make sure and noticed someone posting an IGN review. So we can't have that obviously as not only is it unfair but it could also get us into trouble if people decide to post someone else's reviews. :)

You could always post the review here first Brooker & then if it doesn't win, post it on your page or if it does win, wait till it is removed from the site

I generally do. But also, Ash was kind enough to help me with my writing. I couldn't in good conscience enter reviews that he has helped me with. Directly or not. It just wouldn't be fair. I much prefer to read everyone's reviews.

Good grief all I did was post a review for one my favourite games which I posted for my clan friends and added some new content to reflect the new additions to the game.This is being blown out of proportion.It is not like I am a professional games journalist and this has not been posted on any official sites like IGN so,as I say,there are no copyright issues as it is MY work.

LOL Brooker. I think after this week the review competition should be put on the back burner for a while and we should come up with a new thing (Mainly cos i'm sure everyone, like me is running out of games to review)
JoeToots's avatar

NIALL thats not the point the point is the judges at shopto can't verify that it is your work.
JoeToots's avatar

and also anyone could type sleeping dogs review in google and go to the 100th page and copy a review and claim it as there own.

The judges have the email account that I am verified with at shopto,my name and address and credit card details all of which are identical to my details at the NiC so if they want to verify it they can do so very simply.This is ridiculous.This is my review!

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

The rule means that "You must not use a review posted on another blog or website AND Work submitted must be your own." So that means that even if it is your work, you can't post it here if it have been on another website.

I feel for you Niall, having to do two different reviews only on one site seems stupid really. I also don't feel the review competition should be closed, as it's still getting lots of newer members to post their reviews.

For one final time that is my review and incidentally if you are going to accuse someone of plagiarism please spell it correctly....my apologies to anyone else in this thread I am just offended at being accused of plagiarism.If the rule is that one may not post a review that one has previously posted elsewhere then I will abide by that.Tootell you can PLEASE give it a rest.

I'm not saying close it i'm saying to put it away for a few weeks or alternate it between something else
JoeToots's avatar

if you're going to insult my spelling, look at your own sentence structure in the last sentence. i believe it should be 'Tootell can you please give it a rest.'

Dunno what to review this week tbh. I like to do titles that no-one else reviews usually, since there feels like there's some individuality to it. But most of the ones I've played recently or can discuss in great deal (Okami, Nier, Skyward Sword) are no longer listed on shopto. Guess I could just put at the end of every review a line saying 'and if you haven't played Nier then you should have your hands removed. It's that good!' So hmmmm, got Tomb Raider, Luigi's Mansion 2, Lego City and Monster Hunter from recently still to do. But I think they been done justice. Of course I could go and do one of the ones from my Wii U pile like Arkham City, Darksiders 2, Warriors Orochi or Nintendoland?
