I counted! I’ve won 102 video contests. Big Happy!

Home » Contests » Contest Entries » I counted! I’ve won 102 video contests. Big Happy!

Hi, I’m Joel Moss Levinson, and over the past decade and a half I have entered (and won) a ton of contests. Video contests, text contests, some photo contests, some “idea” contests and more. If you want, I’m happy to help you win some. But right now, I just wanted to make a list somewhere so if I die tomorrow my kids will be able to see all the things I did. It’s actually pretty hilarious to me!

Joel Moss Levinson has won 102 contests and is the worlds most winning video contest entrant of all time.

I’m definitely gonna add some affiliate links to this page at some point? But for right now, I just wanna get the list up cause this thing is bananas. I’ve organized them by company and sort of “department” that the competition was hosted under. For context, this does not include any sweepstakes winning, because I don’t typically enter sweepstakes (though I’ve started to change that recently just to see what happens if I enter 5 per day for a whole year, whether or not it’s fun and pays off, I’ll let you know!)

These may not be the most valuable, but they have been the most fun. I love travel and seeing the world, and winning a free trip somewhere feels about 100x better than paying for a trip somewhere.

Want help with your video contest? (running one, or entering one?)

If you’re thinking of entering a video contest and want advice or guidance, you can hire me to give you some. Warning that I only win about 1 out of every 10.
If you’re hosting a video contest and want it to be more successful, I can help with that too.
