Are internet privacy and security your jam? Do your eyes light up at any opportunity to talk about personal data usage, web tracking, and other similar topics? Then do we have the contest for you!

Join us for the first Ghostery writing contest. The topic is yours to choose, as long as it fits in the digital bubble of privacy, security, tracking, advertising, etc. Also, submissions must remain between 500-1000 words. The only cost to participate is the time it will take to share your thoughts.

Important Dates and Prizes

Submissions are due on Friday, November 6th. All submitters will receive a free Ghostery t-shirt and stickers. The winner of the contest will be announced on Thursday, November 12th and will receive a free annual subscription of Ghostery Premium and a trophy, in addition to having their piece featured right here on the Ghostery blog!

All submissions should be emailed to with “Essay Contest Submission” in the subject line.

We’re excited to see what you all have to say.

Ready, set, write!
