Help us, help you and win great prizes

AT THE Daily Examiner we dish out our fair share of criticism and praise but we're certainly not shy about copping some back.

We're always looking at ways to improve our paper and website to make sure we're giving you what you want.

But to help us get better, we need you, our readers, to tell us what you really think of The DEX.

We are forming an audience panel that can give us regular feedback on what you like, what you need and how we can be essential to your daily lives.

Panel members will be sent occasional surveys covering a variety of topics that will help us develop our content and continually improve the range of things we cover.

If you join the panel now you will go into the draw for a $15,000 travel voucher from Flight Centre, or one of five runner-up prizes of $500 travel.

It takes just five minutes to register and all confirmed new registrations received before October 30 will be entered into the draw.

From time to time we will send out surveys covering a wide range of interesting topics and issues.

Every time you complete a survey, you will have the chance to win.

Completing these surveys automatically enters you into the draw to win extra prizes.

To find out more and see the terms and conditions, go to the Audience Panel tab on our website.

Or you can go directly to dailyexaminer.com.au/panel.
