How to creatively Recommend AVAST and win $1000

howto2_enQuestion of the week: I have been recommending avast! Antivirus to my friends for years. Now I see that you are giving away up to $10,000 for the person with the most recommendations. When you ask for “creative” ways to recommend (to win $1000), just what are you looking for?

Thanks for the helpful question. To celebrate our 25th anniversary and reaching the 200 million users milestone, we are giving away $26,000 to AVAST users who share with their friends and family! I’ll explain more about it below, but let’s first answer your question.

We know that there are people among our 200 million users with wonderful talents. Songwriters, actors, artists, fashion designers, bakers, film-makers, dancers – you name it – in our community, we have them all. We asked those creative minds to think of new ways to recommend avast! Antivirus. We want to showcase those talents and reward the 10 best with $1000 each. Here’s an example from Arun P. He obviously has quite a talent for making videos, so he used it to recommend avast!.


Another avast! user, Fiordi D., has a talent for writing poetry.

Somewhere in the sky,
I can see…

Surfing the internet,
Full of security,
Giving wonderfully,
All of it’s beauty!

Protect your computer,
Keep it running fast,

Now, there’s nothing left to say,
Just download Avast and keep out of fear,

There’s lots more money to be given away!
