We have some amazing giveaways!
But first, check out the new logo for Pitch Wars created by Isabel Ibañez Davis.

After the mentees are chosen, there will be more items added for them. So exciting!
Pitch Wars is accepting donations to help with the administrative costs (see this post here) required to run the contest.

Those who donate $20 or more will receive two additional applications.* To claim your extra mentor applications, please keep your emailed receipt from Paypal as proof when uploading your entry during the submission window on August 3.
