$200 Prize Winners Announced for The Writer’s Life Sleep Buds Ad Writing Contest

Trophy with confetti shooting out

Nick Usborne is here today to announce the names of the three winners for the October The Writer’s Life Sleep Buds Ad Writing Contest!

Check out his short video for the winners’ names and brief insights about why each of these winning submissions impressed him. He pointed out the unique tactics the winners used and how copywriters can apply them in other projects to engage readers.

With over 300 entries to our recent online ad writing contest from The Writer’s Life, Nick says he really enjoys seeing the variety of different approaches people use to tackle copywriting challenges. With so many good entries, he said it was difficult to choose just three $200 prize winners.

Nick started off by congratulating everyone who entered the contest by saying, “Good for you everyone who submitted. It takes some work and it takes some courage to send your work into the world, so good for you for doing that.” We’d also like to add our kudos to everyone who participated in this contest. Great job on taking the time and making the effort — and be sure to add your sample to your portfolio!

The challenge was to write an online ad of just 83 words to promote the fictional DeepSleepBuds. Readers were given a copywriting brief like you’d receive from a real client plus valuable tips for how to write an effective online ad.

Now, here’s Nick with the three winning entries … He also shares some valuable tips writers can use to improve ANY copy they write.

Note: If you’d like feedback on your entry, consider requesting it from fellow copywriters in the private Online Copywriters group here. (While there’s no guarantee a peer will review it, we do encourage it! Everyone’s writing gets stronger with constructive feedback.)
