Contributor of the Month for January 2018

[ Edited ]

The second Contributor of the Month award in December was a success, with a total of £500's worth of gift vouchers and trading books given out. We want to repeat this in January as our way of saying thank you for the Communities continued involvement, assistance, market discussion, and trade idea conversation!


The rules are similar to before. We will be selecting our favorite contributor to the IG community based on both the quantity and quality of their posts. This means the winner won’t necessarily be the person who posts the most messages, but someone who has really helped to bring the community to life.



1st place (the winner) will receive a £200* gift voucher and £50* worth of trading books. ** 

2nd place will receive a £125* gift voucher and £50* worth of trading books. **


Ways to increase your chances of being Contributor of the Month

  • There will be a higher weighting to those who answer other Community members questions and receive 'accepted solutions'. If you answer someone else's question, a mod (or the original poster) will make sure the button is clicked. 
  • Posting quality content across a broad range of topics. 
  • Asking question to IG Community, submitting feedback to IG, and generally getting involved!

3rd place will receive a £75* gift voucher.


If you're new to IG Community, or trading in general, it may be daunting to post trade ideas and market discussion. We have therefore reserved the 3rd place prize for someone who may;

  • Introduces themselves to the IG Community 
  • Submits feedback on IG's offering (e.g. feedback on our platform, apps, deal execution etc)
  • Asks any number of questions they like (e.g. how to trade, how to use a certain feature etc)



We’ll be running this throughout the calendar month of January 2018 with the winner picked at the end of the month. The winner will also have the 'Contributor of the Month' badge added to their profile and a special icon next to your name for the proceeding month so all Community members are aware of your contributions. The competition is subject to our terms and conditions.


If you have any questions please ask below.


All the best

Re: [NEW] Contributor of the Month for January 2018

Those who make money from trading are not here for any prizes, but for relief from the trading bore doom  which most good traders know about.


The only thing that attracts people to forums, is money (solid trade set ups), lulz/entertainment   and killing bore doom., other than IG related enquiries.

Re: [NEW] Contributor of the Month for January 2018



I think if we all together can help build a strong IG Community, share ideas, thoughts and really help bring awareness to each other on trading / investing ideas and themes then this is time well spent.


I think the most important thing is that everyone is polite to each other, not offensive, respect that we all will have different opinions and that based on the amount of experience some will have accumulated knowledge over time that can sometimes assist us above any media article (market noise) and even charts (showing what has happened - historical) but not necessarily show us what will happen next and in the future. 


I wish everyone a very happy and prosperous 2018.
