Hoboken411 Bike Giveaway Contest

6/2/2010:

(See Official Rules here…)

Enter for your chance to win one of three brand new bikes!

Hoboken411 is giving away not one, not two, but THREE brand new bicycles!

Up for grabs is one (1) adult Schwinn Classic Three Cruiser and two (2) Pacific Cycle (Boys: “Tucson” and Girls: “Chromium”) 20″ kids bikes (good for ages 6 to 10)! All you need to do is use your noggin and create something that matches the theme of the contest!

Theme: “Bikes in Hoboken”

The contest is simple: just submit some kind of “creative” piece involving “Bikes in Hoboken.”

While there is no real limit on what your submission can be, some suggestions are: An artistic photo, a graphic image (Photoshop or otherwise), a short video, an mp3 song, poetry, haiku, a kids drawing, etc.

In other words, anything that can be emailed to Hoboken411 and re-published on the site is an acceptable entry! Just make sure it has something to do with bikes and the city of Hoboken!

Potential Bonus Points:
Not guaranteeing anything, but there’s a chance you could earn bonus points for:

  • Adult Bike Entries: Hoboken bike lane parodies, swimsuits, off-the-wall concepts, or just plain brilliant! Make it fun or funny, and you certainly may have a better chance!
  • Kids Bike Entries: Any entry submitted by your kid may earn bonus points if: It’s extraordinarily creative, colorful, and original. If your kid has a good sense of humor, that’s a plus too!

Send your submissions to: hoboken411@gmail.com – be sure to include “Hoboken411 Bike Giveaway Contest” in the subject line.

Submission deadline is TUESDAY, JUNE 22ND – And winners should be announced by Tuesday, June 29, 2010.

How will the winners be chosen?

That’s the fun part. Depending on the quantity and quality of entries received, the criteria for choosing a winner is up to how I feel once the submission deadline has passed.

It looks like if you change the theme of the contest to “biggest ball buster” you’ll have plenty of entries.
