How To Claim Your Prize

If you’re a lucky individual prize winner, please email our Feast coordinator Christine with your top 5-10 choices from the list below (in order of most wanted to least wanted).

Christine will then do her best to match you with your preference (keep in mind each prize only has a limited number available). You have 48 hours to claim your prize, otherwise we’ll need to give them away to others (more details on that below).

It’s first come, first serve, so email your choices right away!

Unclaimed Prizes

As explained above, there is a chance that some of the prizes may go unclaimed, especially with so many winners and so many prizes up for grabs this year!

After 48 hours, we will give any unclaimed prizes away to forum members who post a comment on this thread.

  • We’ll give half of the prizes 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.
  • We’ll give the other half away based on whoever submits the funniest or most interesting comments, since we like to LOL ;]

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

Last Day for the iOS 10 Feast Discount!

And that concludes the iOS 10 Feast! We hope you enjoyed everything at the Feast this year — and that you came away stuffed and happy!

Congrats to all of the prize winners, and a huge thank you to everyone who supported us by purchasing our new Swift books, subscribing to our video tutorials, signing up for RWDevCon, or recommending our site. This site is a lot of work, and you are what makes all of this possible.
