11:30am Tuesday Nov 22: Reader vote for third finalist! Vote on up to five shortlisted entries received between 10:01am Nov 15 and 10am Nov 22. (Poll closes 10am Friday November 25) Note: If there aren’t enough entries for a poll, judges will select the finalist for that week.
Main Prize (x1): Hang Out At CES with Gizmodo! The major prize winner gets their own VAIO laptop and Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V camera so you can walk around the Consumer Electronics Show and share your impressions with fellow Gizmodo readers. Don’t worry, the gadgets do most of the talking – we’re all about keeping things quick and simple.
You’ll also get chance to hang out with some of the Gizmodo team. Danny will be there while Alex is off gallivanting around Europe on holidays. Your trip includes:
Las Vegas return airfare flights from your nearest capital city. Leave Australia Sunday 8th January 2012, depart United States Friday 13th January 2012. Also covered: Five night accommodation at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
Finalists: The four finalists who don’t win the major prize each receive an Android-powered Sony Tablet S (16GB) valued at $579.
Weekly Consolation Packs: Videos included in weekly voting rounds (that aren’t voted through to the final) will receive a Sony Entertainment pack valued at $50.
In the spirit of fairplay, the video should be shot for this competition.
You'll also need to be over 18 as of December 1 (winner announcement date), be an Australian resident, and be cool. See our full terms and conditions for more.
