Your proposed story should be candid and compelling, yet truthful and accurate. Never embellish or fabricate your story as this will result in immediate and permanent disqualification.

To submit your story simply fill out the downloadable entry form(button)/located...and send it to…email/snail mail

Each week one runner-up will be selected, his or her story will then be posted on /Social… Note: As a safety measure we disclose first names only.

If chosen the winner for that particular month your $100 gift card will be promptly sent to the name and address provided on the entry form. 


You must be 18 years of age or older to enter.

No cash rewards. No prepaid Visa or other similar type gift cards.

Gift cards will only be issued for vendors specific to the needs and/or wishes expressed in your story.

Registration will open on the 1st of every month at 9 am PST and close on the last day of the month at midnight PST. 

As stated, one runner-up will be posted at the end of each week.

The monthly winner will be announced within 48 hours of the subsequent month, allowing sufficient time to tally the votes.

Note: In the event you re-submit your story for the current month and are then announced winner of the previous month your story will be deemed invalid.  

Under the rules of the Keeep It Up Contest Ingzig reserves the right to refuse any and all submissions.

Unless noted otherwise weekly runners-up are chosen at our own discretion. Finalists will be determined by communal vote. In the event of a draw Ingzig will act as tiebreaker.

Q & A

How often can I enter?

If you are in fact declared a winner we ask that you wait 6 months before re-entering. Aside from that you may submit your story once per month.   

Is there a waiting period before re-entering?

No. Once the next round is officially open you may re-enter. 

If I win and am so inclined may I donate my gift card to a fellow participant?

Yes you may.

Can I send in a story on someone else’s behalf?

Absolutely! After all, how cool would that be, to suddenly receive a little unexpected recognition for all your hard work. Just make sure the person is 18 or over and has met the criteria of this contest of his or her own accord.
