Got something to swap? Love making videos? Why not put the two together for a chance to win a $100 voucher of your choice! Grab a friend and film yourselves taking a swappable item or skill door-to-door in your neighbourhood, dorm or workplace. Find something to trade, from an iPod or an unused Christmas present to DVDs or dance lessons, and start negotiating! Keep in mind, you don't actually have to swap the item. Share your videos with Swapsity by emailing us at contest@swapsity.ca. and the most unique entry will be crowned the winner.
