Sweepstakes and Contests
Please be aware that sweepstakes and contests are subject to state laws that you need to be sure you comply with. Some states prohibit sweepstakes unless they are registered with state authorities. Others require registration if the prize is over a certain dollar amount. All states prohibit you from requiring sweepstakes entrants to buy something in order to enter the sweepstakes. Even the method by which you choose a winner is governed by state law. If you would like to do a sweepstakes and want to be sure you are in compliance with state laws, please feel free to ask your editor for assistance.
These guidelines are not meant to be comprehensive, and we are not responsible for giving legal advice to you. You should consult other resources, including your own legal counsel if appropriate, if you wish to explore any of these issues further.
