How Can I Get My Prize?

If you are one of the lucky winners please contact me so I can arrange your prizes to be sent to you.

I will also send you a tweet to let you know you are a winner just in case you don’t see this post.

You have 48 hours to send me your email address in order to claim your prize. If you don’t, we will unfortunately have to give your prize away to someone else. If you missed the window sorry – better luck next time!

Quick FAQ:

  • Already have a prize? If you won something you already have, no problem – you are welcome to choose someone to donate it to!
  • Live outside the US? As mentioned in the original iOS 6 Feast post, to win physical products, you must be based in either Europe or the US. If you’re in another country and won, don’t worry – we’ll do our best to provide you with non-physical alternatives instead :]

Unclaimed Prizes

As explained above, there is a chance that some of the prizes may go unclaimed (especially with so many winners!)

So, after 48 hours, if there are any unclaimed prizes, I will give them away to forum members who post a comment on this thread. The prizes will be given away in order from those with the most overall posts on the raywenderlich.com forums to those with the least posts, in order to reward regular forum members.

So if you want one last shot at winning, just post on this thread and who knows, you might get lucky and win an unclaimed prize! :]

And That’s a Wrap!

And that concludes the iOS 6 Feast, we hope you all enjoyed it and got fat and happy along the way!

Congrats to all of the prize winners, and a huge thank you to everyone who supported us by purchasing iOS 6 by Tutorials, retweeting our posts, or recommending our site. You are what makes all of this hard work possible!

Thank you all again, and we’re now back to your regularly scheduled programming at raywenderlich.com!

Aww Yeah!
