Here is a list I am compiling of my favorite Challenge Sites. I have most of my regulars on here, but I am still adding to it. I favor challenges that have a random draw real live prize or gift voucher (not just digi image prizes) and that also do top pick badges. (I DO love those cool badges!!)
Here are my codes:
(RD) - Offers a Random Draw prize...sort of like a door prize for playing along.
(RD+) - Offers an extra chance if you use their product or a sponsor's product.
(PR) - Use of their product or sponsor's product is required.
(TP) - Offers badges for their Top Pick(s).
