For almost a week now, you’ve been reading about the 31 Days of the Dragon contest being sponsored by
the great people at HP and
BuzzCorps. Thirty-one different
mobile news, reviews and info web sites are launching their own individual seven day contests one a day starting on May 2nd. Today it’s finally The Gadgeteer’s turn and I’m very excited to share the details of the contest…
How do you win?
All you have to do is display The Gadgeteer’s URL (use the-gadgeteer.com) in a public place where other people can see it, take a picture and email it to me. The whole idea is to help me advertise the site. Entries that are visible to lots of people, will have a much better chance at winning the prize. Some example ideas would be to print out the-gadgeteer.com on a 10 ft long piece of paper and tape it on the outside of a building, form the letters the-gadgeteer.com in whip cream on a sidewalk, or maybe climb up the Statue of Liberty and …
Ok, I know you’re not going to be able to get that crazy with this, but please do use your imagination!!! The picture has to be real, not fabricated and the crazier the display, the better chance you will have at winning the prize pack.
Here are a couple of very simple rules that I ask you to follow:
1. Don’t destroy or harm public or private property unless you have permission
2. No photoshop fake pics like the one I just posted above as an example. The image you send me can’t be an existing picture where you have used photoshop to paste the words the-gadgeteer.com over the top of it
3. The picture has to be in good taste please. No public restrooms pics, etc.
4. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your picture before 12am EST on 5/15/08
5. Winner has to be willing to send me a picture of themselves with all the prizes, that I’ll post here on the site
6. Enter as many times as you like
7. Contest open to any one living anywhere in the world
All entries will be posted for everyone to see on my Flickr account. The winner will be chosen by me by no specific criteria other than it will be the entry that I like best. I will contact and post the winner at some point during the day on 5/15/08.
