Samsung, eager to promote their US$100 Samsung Gear VR headset (Deer, 2015, October 2), has now decided that the time is right for the Caribbean to get Virtual. All you need is a Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus or Note 5 (Deer, 2015, December 14) to enjoy Virtual reality.
They’ve launched a Samsung #VirtualHolidays Contest which runs from Tuesday December 22nd 2015 and ends on Thursday December 31st 2015 at 11:59pm EST. A bit strange that Samsung did not publicize this completion a bit earlier, as this the first I’m hearing about it, even after searching on twitter using the hashtag #VirtualHolidays.
Still, Samsung remember to tell us! The rules of this competition are very simple, really with the ultimate prize being a US$99 Samsung Gear VR!!
Samsung #VirtualHolidays Contest – How to win a Samsung Gear VR for 2016
First, you must be 18 years old or older to participate and you must reside in Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. Also, if you’re won any previous Samsung contests, three (3) months will have to elapse before you can participate again.
Samsung #VirtualHolidays Contest involves submitting a 15 seconds video or a photo collage about how you spent your Christmas. This video or collage is then entered by posting it on Twitter and Instagram through the @SamsungCRBN account using the hashtag #VirtualHolidays.
Once the Samsung team vets the videos and make sure that your post isn’t violent or offensive and has the vibe they’re looking for, you’ll be assured a chance of winning a Samsung Gear VR.
Samsung will chose two (2) two winners on Twitter and (2) two winners on Instagram, with each winner from each social Network being from Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. Prizes are not transferable, exchangeable or refundable but you have an unlimited number of chances to enter.
Just make sure your Twitter or Instagram account is set on public and that you post your video or collage to the @SamsungCRBN account using the hashtag #VirtualHolidays.
