Active affiliates who joined Advidi before 1 Dec 2023 will compete in 3 different categories, each defined by the type of traffic they send to: Dating, Nutra or Mainstream. New affiliates who join the network during the period of the competition, or who joined the network after 1 December 2023 or who have not generated more than $500 in the past 6 months, will compete in the “Newcomer” category. In addition to the winners of the 4 categories, there will be a total of three Wild Card attendees, one from the Dating vertical, one from the Nutra vertical and one from the Mainstream vertical.
The contest starts on monday 15 Jan 2024 and ends on sunday 10 Mar 2024, CET. Each affiliate or company may only win in one category. In case one affiliate wins in two or three categories, the next runner-up from those categories will be selected to replace the slot.
The Company offers as a prize to the winners in each category an all-expenses-paid trip to Amsterdam from 25 April 2024 to 28 April 2024 (3 nights). 7 total winners will be chosen, the Top Dating Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi Dating offers during the competition); Top Nutra Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi Nutra offers during the competition); Top Mainstream Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi Sweepstakes, eCommerce and Antivirus offers during the competition); Top Newcomer (the affiliate in that category who earns the most points during the competition in any vertical); and three Wild Cards (a randomly selected additional winner; each point earned during the competition receives one entry into the random drawing). Each winner in each category must have reached a threshold of $60,000 in revenue generated in the course of The Contest in order to be eligible for the prize.
The points will be calculated based on the revenue that each participant earns with The Company in the period of the Contest. Every $1000 in revenue will earn one point. In the case that the top 2 Participants have an equal number of points, the Participant who has generated more revenue toward the next point as of the last day of the Contest will earn an additional point and will be considered the winner.

BOOSTER 3 | If an affiliate revenue is higher than the previous cycle at the end of the given cycle, then the points earned during the last completed cycle will be increased by 10%.
