Windows Phone fans are a dedicated and passionate bunch. The community has unofficially adopted the moniker WinPhan and use that as a hashtag on Twitter whenever Windows Phone related discussions are happening.
To be called and/or labeled a WinPhan is the highest form of flattery indeed.
Well the community has decided to launch their first ever Internet wide scavenger hunt to send intrepid users in search for all things Windows Phone related. Even those of you using other brands of mobile phones can take part in this contest for a chance to join the ranks of the WinPhan’s.
Here are the details of the challenge:
This scavenger hunt contest will span five months commencing on the March 1st, awarding one Windows Phone themed prize per week for the first four weeks and bimonthly for the remaining 4 months for a total of 12 prizes.
Each week an entrant will be drawn via a random number selecting software and awarded without bias.
The 12 winning finalists will be automatically entered into a random final drawing for the grand prizes, a Lumia 1020 and a Lumia 1520.
Weekly/fortnightly, every two weeks for the non-Brits reading, prizes will be detailed in each relative announcement post on Winphan.net.
To participate, register at http://winphan.net which is required so they can verify your email. To participate simply take a picture of the target theme for that week, then share a OneDrive (SkyDrive) link of that photo to: contest [at] winphan.net A maximum of 2 entries per participant is allowed per target theme/contest round.
Each target theme will be posted on Monday’s at 8 am PST and entries must be submitted by the following Sunday’s at 5pm PST for the weekly and every other Sunday at 5pm PST for the bimonthly. Winners will be announced on Tuesdays on winphan.net, Facebook page and Twitter accounts [@winphan_global, @thewinphan].
Winners will be contacted via email on occasion of weekly draw announcement. An email will be sent requesting certain details, Full Name, Phone Number, shipping address, clothing sizes and preferences if applicable, and any other information that may be deemed necessary to deliver prizes in an expedited manner.
Failure of any contestants to respond to email in a timely manner, i.e. one month from the most recent attempt by winphan.net to contact them, will result in prize forfeit and another random drawing for the prize to be awarded to another participant from the same round of the contest.
