How do I enter the contest I saw you mention on FOX5? Click here to go to the contest page on our website to find this information.

How do I know if I won a contest? FOX5 always directly contacts our winners, within 24 hours on normal business days, based on the information they provided when entering the contest. Our contests are computer automated and therefore it takes time for winners to be verified and sent to our Creative Services team. Unfortunately, if you weren't contacted within 24 hours on normal business days, it probably means you were not a winner, and we encourage you to keep trying. For other questions, click here to email the Promotions Department. Click here to see if we've got another contest you can enter.

What are the official rules for a contest? Our rules are posted from the time the contest begins until 30 days after the contest ends. Click here to view the official rules for our contests.
