It doesn't make any sense to comb through sweepstakes if you are not eligible to win. On the other hand, if you belong to a group that a sweepstakes is targeting, then your chances of winning are much higher. That's why another popular sweepstakes organization method is to separate the contests by who can enter. Examples include:
Eligibility Based on Country
Most of the sweepstakes on this site are targeted toward U.S. residents. However, every country has its own contests and giveaways. Listings of sweepstakes by country is the broadest way to help you find sweepstakes that you can enter. For example:
Eligibility Based on Age
While the majority of sweepstakes are targeted toward adults aged 18 and above, there are also sweepstakes for other age ranges. For example, there are sweepstakes for kids, sweepstakes for teens, sweepstakes for seniors, and more. For example:

Eligibility Based on Your Line of Work
Sometimes there are also sweepstakes that target people in a specific line of business. I've seen sweepstakes for advertising executives, technology professionals, teachers, and more. For example:
Other Sweepstakes Restrictions
Sweepstakes can also restrict entry to other groups, like smokers, diabetics, and more. Read the sweepstakes rules for details.
