Spring Thing, the annual festival for interactive fiction, is actively seeking prize donors for the 2017 festival!

http://www.springthing.net/

Rather than cash donations as in prior years, prizes now work more like "Secret Santa": donors put up fun items (physical or digital) that a fellow lover of text games might enjoy, and when the festival closes, entrants in the Main Festival pick from available prizes in random order.

Need ideas for prizes? Check out the prize lists for past Spring Things (such as '16 or the non-cash prizes from '14, '11, or '08) or check out this great index of past IF Comp prizes for further inspiration. Prizes with a personal or homemade touch are especially welcome.

Don't want to ship something? There are plenty of great non-physical prize ideas, too, such as placing a gift order on Amazon; a Steam code for a cool story game; play time credits for an online interactive narrative; game PDFs from an online bundle; or a handmade digital gift such as music or artwork. Feel free to post other ideas or suggestions below.

If you'd like to donate a prize, please PM me here or email aaron@springthing.net. Thanks in advance!

Fine print: keep in mind that part of your prize donation, if it's a physical item, is the cost of shipping it to the recipient, who may be from a different country than you. The festival organizer may be able to help subsidize shipping if you have a cool prize idea but can't afford to ship it. Delivery of prizes won't happen until after the festival closes in May.
