Save Our Seeker Contest Winners

Announcing the winners of last month's Journey Book Campaign/Save Our Seeker contest:

Congratulations to our five winners, and thank you to everyone who worked so hard on their amazing entries. Unfortunately everyone who sent a letter or postcard could not win, but I am happy to announce that next month (April 2nd) we will begin another contest on a smaller scale. Until then, please continue to participate in the regular Journey Book Campaign and support Legend of the Seeker.

Noteworthy Campaigns

  • Fan tables at conventions around the world [calendar here], with several thousand Seeker-themed posters [photo here], bookmarks [photo here] and iTunes downloads given away, plus fan panels, costume parades, etc - Dragon Con 2010 [photos here], RingCon 2010 [photos here], ROMICS 2010, [photos here, videos here], NYCC 2010 [photos here] and NYCC newsletter that went out to 25,000 people with ad sponsored by LotS fans [screenshot here], WonderCon 2011 [photos here], Naples Comicon 2011 [photos here], Big Apple Comic-Con [photos here], DragonCon 2011 [photos here].
And always remember...
  • A postcard or letter is always the better option, networks are more likely to respond to physical messages rather than digital ones.
  • Your letter can simply be a brief note, so long as it is clear you want more Legend of the Seeker. ;)
  • Postcards are both cheap and very effective.
  • Be polite. The person who will read your message didn't cancel our show, we shouldn't treat them as if they did.
  • If possible, try to argue that Legend of the Seeker would greatly benefit all parties involved in its resurrection. State that even with poor time slots, lack of promotion and erratic airing schedules, the series still managed to gain millions of dedicated followers. If given a chance, it could be one of the most popular shows currently on television!
  • To request re-runs when we contact networks. Fans in Italy, Sweden and Romania have already succeeded in getting reruns back on the air after campaigning their local stations! LotS is also currently airing on the Disney Channel in Russia.
  • We have Terry Goodkind's support! [link]
  • To tell the networks that the fan base is growing with 2.5M viewers per episode in Germany and Italy respectively. Legend of the Seeker is currently also airing in France, Finland, Sweden, Romania, and Croatia. The show could have ~10M fans worldwide.
  • The November 1st/2011 Tweetathon of #LegendOfTheSeeker trended at #19 Worldwide :) [screenshot]
  • To watch and support LotS on Hulu, Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, & DVD [SaveOurSeeker.com/store.html]
  • [NEW] Most importantly, remember to mention that ABC would be willing to sell LotS when writing to networks. Not necessary when writing to ABC/Disney (ask them to look for a buyer), or a LotS producer (ask them to fight for the show just as we are).

Please note once again that a letter or postcard carries much more weight than an email, tweet or facebook comment. Snail mail is always the best option. If you want to send a Seeker-themed postcard you can find many ready to print cards already made at The Seeker Picture Repository.

Check back later as we continue to publish the schedule. Thank you for your continued support!
