Show Them Your Wow
What does the “wow” factor mean to you? Well, Microsoft wants to know. Now that they have released their version of “wow” with Windows Vista, they are holding a contest for anyone who wants to show off their “stuff!” The contest is called “Show Us Your Wow” and they want you to do so by submitting either a digital photo or a video that you think is worthy of a “wow!”
Microsoft is, of course, giving away prizes with this competition as well. They will award one winner from each country/region, along with one grand prize winner from around the globe. The finalists will receive a brand new computer (desktop or laptop) loaded with the new Vista Ultimate operating system. The grand prize winner will get a brand new high-definition video camera, as well as, a seven day trip (for two) to a world vista of their choice. Those include Sydney’s Harbor Bridge and Opera House, Beijing’s Great Wall, Agra’s Taj Mahal, New York’s Empire State Building or Paris’ Eiffel Tower. Not too shabby, huh?!
You do need a Windows Live ID to be able to submit your entry (any Hotmail/MSN username and password will work). To read all the details and official rules, visit Vista’s Web site and click on the link that says “Enter the ‘Show Us Your Wow’ Competition.” Once you’re ready, just click on the “Upload Your Wow” button and just go to town! Now, this contest did start back on January 4, 2007, but it runs until March 5, 2007, so you have plenty of time to get in on the action if you want. So, bring on the “wow,” but most importantly, have fun doing it!
