“You’re Going to AWAI’s Virtual Bootcamp!” Three Writer’s Life Contest Winners Are Receiving a Ticket to Virtually Attend The Copywriting Event of the Year
Big news! Three winners were just announced for The Writer’s Life October Writing Contest.
Congratulations to Allan Ingledue, Allison Marullo, and Michaela Cizova — each the winner of a ticket to AWAI’s 2023 Virtual Bootcamp! (A $2,495 value.)
Plus, we’d also like to add kudos to all the AWAI members who participated in this contest. Great job on making the effort — and be sure to add your sample to your portfolio!
The challenge was to persuade readers to watch one our classic Bootcamp Member Spotlights. (Read more about the contest here.)
The Member Spotlights are a high point of each day at Bootcamp … hearing the journey one of our members took from newbie to successful writer. The speakers tell thoughtful and engaging stories of their experiences and provide valuable tips for writers embarking on the journey to the writer’s life.
Members were challenged to write just 83 words total to encourage the reader to watch one of the inspirational videos. Entries were judged on how attention-grabbing, persuasive, and engaging they were, and with so many great entries, it was difficult to narrow it down to just three winners.
Here is the prize-winning copy:
