How do you win? How does the monthly competition work?

  • Garfum Monthly Competition
  • Up to 10 Monthly Winners with the HIGHEST POINTS
  • Each month for 12 months, THE HIGHEST VOTED 10 VIDEOS will win cash prizes of up to $250.00.
  • Viewers to the site will determine the winning videos through voting on their favorites among those submitted within the contest submission period.

Video Offs the Garfum championship Yearly Winner:

  • The top video winner each month will advance to the annual VIDEO OFF's Garfum Yearly Grand Championship, where one grand prize winner will receive up to twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00).
  • A multi-week voting process, called the VIDEO OFFs, determines the Garfum Yearly Grand Champion. The video receiving the most votes will be deemed the Garfum Yearly Grand Champion.
  • The sponsor reserves the right to determine which one video received the highest ratings for the contest submission period. This will occur on or about 30 days after the contest is over or approximately September 30, 2015.

Can I win more than once? Yes and no. Each video can only win once a month and be eligible once for The Video Off Yearly Garfum champion prize! (The same video cannot go on the Video Off but be the second runner up. The same video can only be entered once in the Video Off.) You can enter more than one video; each of your videos can win.

How do I get my money? We transfer winnings either by bank transfer or through PayPal. We only pay up to $500 through PayPal; if your prize is bigger than that, we need to do a bank transfer. This can take up to 4 weeks.

What happens if my video does not place in a monthly competition? If your video does not place in a monthly competition, it will automatically be entered into the next monthly competition.

How does voting work? Each voter uses a 3-rating VOTE system to evaluate each video. Then, points are assigned to the video based on the following system:

  • A rating of 1 = 1 Voting Point
  • A rating of 2 = 2 Voting Points
  • A rating of 3 = 3 Voting Points
  • The video with the highest votes score wins the monthly competition.
  • Video viewers earn one Garbuck reward for each vote submitted, with a limit of 20 Garbucks per day per registered user. VOTE ALL DAY.

Who can vote? Any registered Garfum.com user can vote for any video.

Can I vote more than once? Yes. You can vote for as many videos as you'd like, but only once per day. You can always LIKE the video as well.

Can I vote with more than one Garfum.com user profile? No. That is grounds for disqualification.

Can I vote for my own video? Yes, you can vote once per day.

Is there a best time to enter? If you enter your video earlier in the month, you might have a better chance of winning the monthly prizes! If your video does not place into the monthly competition, it will automatically be entered into the next monthly competition.
