As Demian explained last week when the contest launched, these are the prizes:
Grand prize (1): Ticket to Authority Intensive (in Denver, CO on May 7-9, 2014) and lifetime* access to Authority (approximate value $3,931).
First place prize (1): Lifetime* access to Authority (retail value $2,436).
Second place prizes (3): One-year membership to Authority (retail value $348).
*Lifetime access means as long as Authority exists. We have absolutely no plans to stop any time soon, given that there are over 5,000 Authority members who wouldn’t like that very much 😉
Plus, we will publish all winning essays on Copyblogger as guest posts, and all winners will also receive a website badge designed by Copyblogger’s renowned Lead Designer Rafal Tomal.
So you receive “authority” in more ways than one.
