Win a $20 Gift Certificate for Buster Keaton Goodies!

Contest begins January 1, 2017 (EST) and ends on January 15, 2017 at midnight (EST)

To celebrate the opening of BK100, we are holding our first TWITTER CONTEST.  One lucky winner will walk away with a $20 coupon to our Buster Keaton store at  We've got films, shirts, books, magnets, and so much more.  You can even use it towards the purchase of a Keaton Society Membership.  Here's all you need to do:

  • Follow us on Twitter: @porkpiehat100
  • Tell us: What is your favorite Buster Keaton film?
  • Include: #bk100contest

Here's how it works:

  • Every tweet about your favorite film that includes #bk100contest earns ONE BALLOT (maximum 1 per day)
  • Every time you RETWEET our tweets that include #bk100contest you will earn ONE BALLOT (maximum 5 per day)
  • Winner will be chosen at random.
  • Don't live in the US?  That's okay!  The contest, like the Buster Keaton Society itself, is international!


What does it mean to "earn a ballot"?

When you tweet about your favorite film, we will assign you 1 ballot.  When you retweet our tweets that include #bk100contest, you also are assigned a ballot.  So, if you tweet your favorite film once, and retweet us twice, we will literally put your name into our (porkpie) hat 3 times for our drawing.

What counts as a "Buster Keaton film"?

We are looking for "films" as opposed to television appearances (that contest will come later).  As long as Buster APPEARED in the film, you are good to go.  Could be an Arbuckle film, could be a Keaton short or feature, could be an MGM talkie, and could be How to Stuff a Wild Bikini.   Dig deep!

Which retweets earn a ballot?

Any tweet that comes from @porkpiehat100 or @busterkeatonsoc that includes #bk100contest can be retweeted for a ballot.

What is the maximum amount of ballots I can earn in total?

The contest will span 15 days.  You can earn 1 "favorite film" ballot per day, and 5 retweet ballots per day, for a total of 6 ballots per day and (6 x 15) 90 ballots over the course of the contest.


  • The International Buster Keaton Society's determination of what earns a ballot is final.
  • The $20 voucher for has no monetary value.
