Prosper is offering the opportunity for borrowers to have their loan paid in full free of charge once again. The marketplace lending platform is launching their #MyProsperStory Video Contest to share your story as to how Prosper helped you to manage your finances more effectively.
What do you have to do? Create a short video (3 minutes max) and tell your story. Email it off to Prosper and they will review. First prize is a loan paid in full up to a max of $35,000. There are two additional prizes at $5000 and $2500 which isn’t so bad.
They ran this program last year and I watched a few of them myself. Competition may be stiff, but you never know unless you try.
Guidelines are below:
- November 3 – 20: Beginning today, send us a short video (3 minutes max) talking about how you used a loan through Prosper to stay on top of your finances. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #MyProsperStory to qualify for prizes.
- December 1 – 10: Prosper will select 10 finalists among all the videos submitted. On December 1, we will open voting to the community. Anyone can view the #MyProsperStory finalists and help us pick the winners. (Consider yourself forewarned though: if our last contest was anything to go by, you should prepare yourself for lots of tears and laughs.)
- December 15: Winners of the #MyProsperStory will be announced on December 15 via the Prosper Blog.
