Yuri’s Night Catalyst Competition - Sponsored by collectSPACE

Be a Yuri’s Night “Catalyst.” Celebrate and win space flown prize packs.

Santa Rosa, CA, March 10, 2014 --(PR.com)-- We live in a world where we are all linked together by our social networks and Yuri’s Night needs your help to reach the far corners of the planet and connect everyone to the World Space Party. Two winners will be selected to win special prize packs provided by collectSPACE.com including space flown items, autographed memorabilia, and lots of space goodies. Everyone celebrating Yuri’s Night has the opportunity to win by following the few simple steps below.

How this works: For the Yuri’s Night Catalyst
- Identify. Find a city that does not yet have a Yuri’s Night event scheduled.
- Connect. Encourage people you know in the area to host a Yuri’s Night event.
- Remind. Make sure the events are registered on yurisnight.net and that the event host completes their submission to YN Live (mentioning your name in the event notes) before the deadline so that you can both win.

How this works: For the Yuri’s Night Host
- Register. Head over to the Yuri’s Night MCC and register your event with location, size and details (add your catalyst’s name to your event notes.).
- Celebrate. Have a great event and be sure to capture photos and video of the celebration.
- Enter to Win. Write up 2-3 sentences describing your event with photos or videos and post to Yuri’s Night Live at http://live.yurisnight.net.

Small Print Details
We will give away one prize pack each to a chosen winning event host and catalyst. Due to US legal restrictions it will not be a completely “random” drawing among the 2014 Yuri’s Night Events registered on our website, but rather chosen by the Yuri’s Night Global Executive Team. Note that you will increase your chances of winning if you are able to help catalyze multiple events. Potential winners must write at least 2 sentences about their event on live.yurisnight.net. All winners need to be 18 years of age or older. The winning persons will be identified and contacted by April 30 to arrange for the mailing of their prizes. If you have any issues, please e-mail info@yurisnight.net for help.

Deadline to submit to YN Live: April 25 11:59pm EDT / April 26 03:59 GMT

*Winners accepting the prize(s), consent to the event sponsor(s) use of their name, address (city, state), photographs and likenesses for purposes of advertising, trade and promotion in any and all media, without further compensation, except where prohibited by law.
