We’ve seen a number of people lamenting the inability to get autographs due to the event being online. We actually considered that when we started planning and will be giving you the chance to win an autograph from the guest of your choice.
Each participant of OTAQUEST connect has autographed a signboard which we’ll be giving away to one lucky winner per guest. To enter just do the following this weekend:
- Follow @OTAQUEST on twitter
- Tune into the guest or performer whose autograph you’re aiming to win
- Tweet about the guest’s panel or performance & include the onscreen hashtags
Your tweet can be anything you want as long as it relates to their appearance at CONNECT. It could be comments, an interesting moment, or even just your love for the guest! We’ll select the winners in the week following the event. Participation is open to all fans worldwide and you can enter for as many guests as you like!
