Now that England have stuttered out of the Euros and Andy Murray almost made history at Wimbledon, all sporting eyes turn towards London 2012 and The Olympic Games. That means the next few weeks will have a sporty theme and we expect there may well be plenty of competitions and prizes on offer to celebrate.
However, if you’re after tickets then you might have to get yourself in gear as these promotions will be closing very soon. One such competition is from Samsung Mobile who are offering you the chance to Warm Up & Win. They have 20 pairs of tickets on offer including Closing Ceremony tickets – but you only have until 17th July to get involved.
Entry to the competition is fairly easy – you need to select an event from Relay Run, Long Leap, Triple Jump and Star Jumps and then create a five second video. Note that you need to film your 5 second video from left to right through the frame (i.e. you appear in shot from the left and go out of shot from the right).
Your video may then be chosen by Samsung to form a mash up video.
However, to win the prizes you’re going to have to put a little bit of effort in to your creations. According to the rules “the criteria for determining the winning entry is the video which shows the participant undertaking a relevant challenge in the most humorous, originality, enthusiasm, and effort manner”!
You might want to consider fancy dress or thinking about your location so as to make your entry stand out. Remember you only have five seconds to make an impression so make it a good one – and make sure you have a quick look through the terms and conditions before making your video!
Good luck – and if you do enter don’t forget to share your efforts with your fellow Loquax compers.
