Do you work at a cubicle day in and day out? Is your daytime home uninspired and prone to cause ennui?
If so you should definitely enter the Pimp My Cube Contest . The winner of the worst cube will receive a grand prize of having their cube pimped by selected Contest Factory judges. The contest has a total grand prize value of approximately $1200. Wow!
Your cube will be updated in one of these three ways if you are the grand prize winner:
-New high end computer system
-New Desk, Chair and Decorations
-New Entertainment Package with high end stereo, espresso machine, etc.
To enter you need to film and upload a video to the Pimp My Cube Contest site (link is above). For a jumping off point on what an entry video can look like please watch the example video above. Try to be as creative as you can. You want to stand out. You could make it humorous or even include a storyline. Your video should explain in detail why you find your cube, office or workspace unpleasant and why it’s so important for you to receive this pimpage. Some possible reasons for your workspace driving you up the wall may include crummy furniture, outdated technology or a messy desk that you can’t tame. Be sure to mention if your space is cave like in feeling too, i.e. dirty and dark.
After you enter you need to invite everyone that you know to vote for your video. Prime suspects for this assignment include your coworkers, family and friends. You get sweepstakes entry points for registering, voting, commenting and inviting others to register for the contest.
The grand prize of your cube being ‘pimped’ will be selected by CF judges based on various requirements which include who has earned the most votes, the most compelling story and the best (really worst) video.
A second prize of a $200 gift card will also be awarded to a registered user chosen by random drawing at the end of the contest period. The contest period is from 12/5/11 at 12:00PM to 1/31/12 at 12:00PM. So you need to get right on this. Come up with an idea, shoot it and upload it ASAP to brighten up your life!
