Winners will be selected using specially trained monkeys (and software) to ensure efficiency and fairness, and will be notified to you immediately via Twitter or email. You choose the prize, and are responsible for delivering the prize - best at the box office, generally. You can have a number of winners, and runners up, but simple is best. Cost is £14 per competition for setup, plus £5 for each day the competition is run. You can run a competition with daily winners across multiple days if you wish. You can also specify precise start and end times for the competition. Entries are based on use of your specified hashtag, web link or phrase (or a combination of any or all of the three) and will be tweeted out twice per day.

"Great to see some very affordable and decent advertising!" - Tom Stabb @Insensible2015

"I did competitions with @edinburghfest last August. It seemed a fun way to advertise, got a lot of RT's and helped spread the word about my show. Will do it again this year" @Jo Caulfield

All tweets are limited in quantity - we will only broadcast a planned maximum of 20 sponsored tweets on any given day. A maximum of 5 competitions will run at any one time - so early booking will guarantee your chosen day(s). All tweets are limited to 130 characters (links will take up 23 characters, irrespective of the length of the link URL.) Images don't take up extra space. Your text will be prefaced with the hashtag ‘#advert’ or ‘#ad’. We recommend you include a link for ticket booking, time and dates of your show and venue number, for example:
