Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions our staff receives about the contest.
Is the contest open globally?
How do I enter on a daily basis?
1. To enter the contest daily, fill out the form on our website and click the submit button. You will be taken to a Thank You page so you know that your entry has been received.
2. The email entry option re-opens at midnight in the respective time zone of the entrant.
Do I have to participate on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest to enter?
Can I enter multiple times per day with different email addresses?
No. As the rules state: limit one online entry on the APQS website, per eligible person with a valid email address per day (or one entry via mail per day).
Can an APQS team member enter for you?
The APQS team is unable to submit entries on your behalf.
Are any of the form fields mandatory for entry?
Yes, all fields with (*) are required fields for entry.
I entered my information and clicked submit but one of the fields is highlighted in red. What does this mean?
If you click the submit button and one of the form fields becomes highlighted red, this typically means the field was filled out incorrectly. Please go back and check your entry again, correct any mistakes and then click submit again. On successful submission, you will be taken to the confirmation page.
I am getting an error message, what should I do?
Make sure you are using the most up-to-date browser (Chrome, FireFox, etc.) or try a different browser completely. Out-dated operating systems or browser can result in error messages.
Issues with CAPTCHA
CAPTCHA allows us to make sure you are human. It is a way of thwarting spam and automated submissions. We recently updated the CAPTCHA mechanism on the site after numerous complaints. Simply SOLVE the simply math problem and click submit.
If you are having issues with the CAPTCHA, please make sure your browser is updated. Also, try another browser.
If you are using FireFox, add-ons or extensions can cause issues. To check to see if this is an issue for you, navigate to the Contest page page, then go into Firefox’s settings (1.) and click the question mark (2.). Once you see the Help options, click “Restart with Add-ons Disabled…” and click Restart, then click “Start in Safe Mode.” This should open up the Contest page again. If the CAPTCHA is available, an add-on or extension is probably causing the issue. Either disable or use another browser to enter.
