To celebrate 9 solid years of being the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Platinum awardee (more about this on TP soon) when it comes to mobile phones, Nokia has launched a 3-month contest called The Nokia Stories.
Now is your chance to tell people about the greatest, funniest or most interesting experiences you’ve had with your Nokia mobile device. Log on to Nokia Stories page and write about your experience. Tell us how your Nokia phone saved the day, how it helped you in that long distance relationship with your significant other, how it’s your new best friend and so on. Nokia will post the best entries on the site and every month, they will choose two winners to receive a brand new Nokia 2220 slide.
The Nokia 2220 slide is a compact quality slider that helps you express yourself while giving you practical ways to stay connected and organized. Listen to the built-in FM radio and stay entertained, browse the internet with GPRS connectivity and access social networking sites, keep up with the news, and search for useful information, all on the move.
You could also use your free email address from Ovi by Nokia on your Nokia 2220 slide, or access free webmail on any PC, write yourself notes to help remember shopping lists, directions, and other information you need throughout the day, and store up to 1000 entries in the phone book. With all these features in one tiny device, you’d find another best friend in the Nokia 2220 slide.
Here are the mechanics:
The online contest is open to all residents of the Philippines using any Nokia device.
Participants may join by doing the following:
a. Simply fill out the form in the Send Story page on this site, then type in your most memorable experience with your Nokia in the text box provided.
b. Participants may also attach at most one photo to their entry. This photo is optional. Any attached photos will be resized to a maximum of 160 x 160 pixels for display on the site, if applicable.
Submitted stories will be reviewed by Nokia Philippines and/or its affiliates within 48 hours, after which selected entries will be placed online on the next available working day.
Participants will be notified through their email if their entry is chosen and published on the Nokia Stories site.
Participants may only send one entry per email address. Entries must be original and should not have been previously released in a professional publication, online or offline (with the exception of the participants’ personal blogs).
Nokia Philippines will select two (2) winning posts every month, from all published entries received during that month. The two winning posts will be selected according to content and relevance, based on Nokia Philippines standards. Winners will be contacted via the email address/es or mobile phone number provided with their entries.
Each winner will win a brand new Nokia 2220 slide. Nokia Philippines will discuss the method and manner of claiming these prizes via a separate venue.
The cutoff for each month’s entries will be on the 25th of each month at 11:59 PM. Entries will be tracked according to the date and time of their submission, Manila time.
Announcement of the winners will be done every 30th of the month.
The contest will run from May 22, 2010 to August 25, 2010.
