Frequently asked questions
PLEASE NOTE: Access2Awesome is currently suspended due to the unprecedented closure of organizations and limitations on gatherings associated with COVID-19 response.
All entries made prior to or during this suspension will be valid.
Once a majority of Participating Organizations in the city are once again operating, then a date will be set and announced for the resumption of Access2Awesome. A further three weekly drawings will be made in addition to the final drawing.
When does Access2Awesome begin?
The first weekly drawing for Access2Awesome will occur on January 21.
How many drawings will there be?
There will be a total of 11 weekly drawings beginning on January 21 and finishing March 31. The Grand Prize will be drawn early in April.
If I am the winner, do I really have to go to everything?
The short answer? Yes. If you are the winner and you request tickets for a particular event, then you will be one of the attendees as the tickets are not transferrable and cannot be sold.
I won a weekly prize! May I choose it?
Unfortunately not. As we have multiple weekly drawings, the prizes are allocated when the drawing occurs. Sorry, we are unable to swap prizes.
Should I enter more than once/Should I enter once by text and once on the website?
Multiple entries do not increase your chance of winning. Only one entry per email address is accepted.
May my Arts and Culture organization participate?
Yes of course! We welcome any Arts and Culture organization to include tickets for either the weekly drawings or the Grand Prize. Contact us at Access2Awesome@artsandculturesd.org and let us know you are interested!
So I can go to ANY Arts+Culture Experience? Do I just receive a pile of tickets?
Access2Awesome provides access to certain shows, experiences and events by the participating venues. These are all outlined on the artsandculturesd.org/win page.
How are winners notified and what happens if a prize is unclaimed?
Winners are notified by direct email on Wednesday of each week.
