Armor Venue lures in armor enthusiasts with a new monthly campaign of contests, sweepstakes, and giveaways. Armor Venue is a premiere online armor supplier featuring a wide range of products from Greek and Roman armor to medieval battle wear to WWII weaponry to official epic movie replicas. Amid the crowd of online companies utilizing social media as a promotion tool, Armor Venue makes its mark with its giveaways of high-value, high-quality prizes.
Armor Venue’s most recent prize opportunity was a photo contest. Fans were invited to submit a photograph of themselves either wearing or displaying an AV product or wearing or displaying a medieval-themed item from another vendor. Entrants were also allowed to use editing software such as Adobe Photoshop or GIMP to create a unique setting for the photograph.
Notable submissions were featured on Armor Venue’s blog and Facebook page, including a snapshot of a Joan of Arc look-a-like in chainmail and the Medieval Pigface Helmet available on Armor Venue’s website; a picture of a Roman centurion; and the winning submission, a photo of two knights in homemade medieval armor. The winner of the photo contest received a Medieval Sugar Loaf Helmet priced at $138.
Previous sweepstakes include a free giveaway of a Medieval War Sword valued at $139. The prize was a 39” sword with a carbon steel blade – the size gives the weapon a true weight in the hand. The Medieval War Sword also features a full tang, a genuine leather-wrapped grip, and brass crossbar and pommel.
