No Tricks, Just Treats Halloween Contest!

Mobile Nations No Tricks, Just Treats Halloween Costume Contest!

submit your costume + phone/tablet photos to halloween@mobilenations.com

With Halloween falling on a Monday this year, we know a lot of you will be out this weekend in costume getting your party on. So to celebrate Halloween and the official launch of our new Mobile Nations network branding, we thought we'd have some fun with a cross-site mobile device + costume contest. 

What You Need to Do

When you're out at Halloween parties this weekend or out trick or treating on Monday, get a photo snapped of you in costume holding your smartphone and/or tablet visibly out in hand. Be scary, funny or do a crazy pose. Whatever you want is cool. Have fun with it. For brownie points, load up CrackBerry.com in the web browser or throw a CrackBerry wallpaper on. Group photos with friends and co-workers are welcome too. And hey, if you have a mix of phones in the group photo and want to go for extra-awesomeness, you can load up the appropriate Mobile Nations website onto each different type of phone: TiPb.com on iPhones/iPads; AndroidCentral.com on Android devices; PreCentral.net on webOS devices; WPCentral.com on Windows Phone.  

Submit Your Photo

With your photo taken, all you need to do is email it in to halloween@mobilenations.com by midnight PST this Monday, October 31st. It would be super helpful if you renamed your photos with your username and maybe the site you're entering from. Also, if you would like to include a caption or any other information about your picture, it would be appreciated.

How and What You'll Win

On the morning of November 1st we'll go through all the photos and pick out a bunch of winners in a variety of categories - scariest costume, funniest costume, sexiest costume, best group photo and more! We'll put all the winners and other photos received into a video collage and post it up on the blogs Tuesday afternoon. 

As for the prizes? Well... it's Halloween - which means you might get a treat, or this could all be just a nasty trick. But you know us... we like treats. We're going to keep the treates a surprise though, so take your photo this Halloween, email it in, and stay tuned.

From all of us at Mobile Nations, have a safe and happy Halloween!!
