Croeni Foudation $5k Award for #almostfamous ASAP species - Deadline End Feb 2016


To raise awareness on the little known Critically Endangered vertebrates identified by the Asian Species Action Partnership (ASAP!), the Croeni Foundation will be giving $5000 to the winner of their Almost Famous competition according to the following guidelines:

  1. Post about one of the ASAP species on your social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).

  2. Your post MUST include a link to the species’ profile page generated with the URL Builder below, as well as a hashtag #AlmostFamous.

  3. You can make as many posts as you like, on any of your social media channels, as frequently as you wish. The post content should aim to raise the awareness of the species, provide information about it or the threats it faces. You can make posts about different ASAP species (remember to include the link to the correct species profile page, generated with the URL Builder below), there is no limit on how many species you can or want to champion.

  4. Your posts need to be accessible to the public, i.e. they can be viewed by anyone and not have any special privacy settings.

  5. By the end of February 2016, select your 3 most popular posts and email us their screenshot and link.

  6. The post popularity is measured by the number of ‘shares/re-tweets’ and ‘likes’ it receives. Each ‘share/re-tweet’ (or its equivalent, depending on the social media channel) is worth 2 points, while each ‘like’ (or its equivalent, depending on the social media channel) is worth 1 point.

  7. The points from the ‘shares’ and ‘likes’ of your 3 most popular posts will be added up together and the person/organization with the highest points total will be declared a winner.

  8. Croeni Foundation reserves the right to announce your or your organization’s name as the prize winner on our website, social media, printed materials, and other communication channels.

  9. The prize will be transferred to the winner by a direct bank transfer within 1 month from the date of the winner announcement.
