Vamerites, I have some incredible news to share with all of you. For the first time ever, I am happy to announce #VamersChristmas, a means of giving back to our Vamers Community (we like to call you all Vamerites).

Since 2011, Vamers has continued to grow from strength to strength. We have a vibrant and interactive community of people who visit our site regularly, and continue to support all of our efforts. You give us the motivation to continue doing what we are doing. As such, we want to give back to all of you.

In order to make #VamersChristmas a reality, we reached out to a variety of distributors and publishers with whom we work with on a daily basis. I am happy to say that three of them came through for us, and in a really big way.

Nintendo Distributor South Africa, Megarom Interactive and Ster-Kinekor Entertainment were incredibly generous enough to sponsor close to R30 000 in prizes for our very first #VamersChristmas. Yes, that is not a typo. We do indeed have up to R30 000 in prizes up for grabs. We are incredibly grateful for their support and cannot thank them enough for helping make our first #VamersChristmas a reality!

We have a total of four prizes to be won: three Nintendo hampers (valued at R2500 each), one for PlayStation 4 owners (valued at R8500), and another for Xbox One gamers (valued at R12 000).

In order to enter our #VamersChristmas competitions, simply watch the video above and then follow the links below:

Each of the above #VamersChristmas competitions will be open for entry from 4 – 18 December 2017. This way, we will hopefully be able to get the prizes to the winning Vamerites just in time for Christmas.

Once again, a big thank you to our prize sponsors, they have been absolutely stellar, and a special thank you to you, our readers, viewers and fans. Without you, Vamers would not be where it is today. Thank you Vamerites for your support, and may 2018 and beyond be even bigger and better for all of us.
