Once you have found your region's tag - bookmark that search and you will never have to scroll through the long giveaway list again. To further help, I have set out the tags below with links to the proper searches. Click on your country (or, of course, worldwide) and you will have a listing of giveaways available to you.

If you are having any difficulties with entering our giveaways, our how-to post should be able to steer you in the right direction. I am working hard on providing more worldwide possibilities but again this lies in the publishers' hands.
