Introducing the I LOVE MY CRACKBERRY Video Contest: Win a BlackBerry Storm 2, Bold 9700, Macbook and More!

By Kevin Michaluk on 5 Oct 2009 04:16 pm EDT

It was nearly a year ago, leading up to the availability of the BlackBerry Storm, that we held our now-epic What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? contest. This October around, we're approaching the launch of two highly-anticipated devices in the BlackBerry Storm 9550/9520 and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and in true CrackBerry fashion have cooked up a new video contest that will give you the chance to get your hands on one of these awesome devices and some other great prizes for FREE. Introducing the I LOVE MY CRACKBERRY Video Contest!

Contest Overview: You'll want to visit for the details, but the premise on this one is simple - make a video showing us that you love your BlackBerry! We want you to get creative: sing a song, make a commercial or do something zany to prove to us and all the CrackBerry readers and smartphone owners out there just how much you love your BlackBerry. You'll have until Sunday, Midnight on October 18th to get your video entry submitted. From there we'll make all of the entries viewable on the contest site, and our judging panel is going to narrow down the entries to ten finalists. We'll run the finalist videos on the blogs and let the community vote for their favorite!

What You Can Win: We've really upped the ante on this one. In honor of the recent release of BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac, our grand prize winner is going to win an Apple Macbook, their choice of the new BlackBerry Storm or Bold 9700, and one of our favorite accessories, the Schlage LiNK home automation system. The first runner-up will also win their choice of Storm 9550/9520 or Bold 9700, and we're lining up a bunch of prizes for our other finalists and contestants (if you're reading this and want to get involved as a sponsor, send us an email to contest @ Heck, just today SmrtGuard told us they'll give a free one-year subscription to any of the entries that make them laugh! All in all, AWESOME PRIZES.

LET'S GET IT STARTED: That's it! We want to see some awesome videos get submitted, and I know the our CrackBerry readers are the best out there. Get your creative juices flowing and hit record! In just a couple weeks you'll be CrackBerry famous. Now this is gonna be fun.

Make your video! Your chances are better on this contest than on a "leave a comment" type one. Just gotta be creative, put in some time and effort, and getter done! Good luck!!


AWESOME contest!! Good Luck to all. :)


How long does the vid have to be? Just short like all the clips or is it fairly open to creativity?

I don't know, I'm neither creative nor funny on video.


whats the worst that could happen... send a video in.. worth a shot!


I'd love to win any of them.


Amazing contest my friend .. ;)


Girls pudding wrestling again works for me :)


I second that... but this time Jello - and the dude that ran 20 miles up it 2 40 miles.. we gotta make this one bigger haha


you sir are easily amused by girls that aren't that hot.


have a screen name that represents a scooner...


maybe you could use a sailboat on your video submission...


Anyone know if you can upload more than 1 video for the contest? I do have a creative mind, but I have an idea of doing one thats idiotically simple and great, and one will be complex and time consuming.

We didn't put into the rules that you couldn't submit more than one entry. I think if somebody wants to take the time and effort to put together more than one quality entry we'll definitely allow it. If both are good enough to be considered top ten finalists, we'd likely expand the finalists to be the top eleven, just so nobody is being kept out because of it. We're friendly that way and always go for the win-win solution.


oh it is on like donkey kong..I got this in the bag


ahahah , here we go again !


another winner to the bikinis will it? i'd like to see some real creativness this time around! if not, i'll get my thong out and wear it backwards!


The best prizes of seen


Awesome...I guess I better get to work thinking about something to do!


you should have used that macbook to make a less shitty video


Was that supposed to be funny?


supposed to but I think Webster's would call that a "fail"


contest lame.. yup a "fail"


Ok would a 5 minute vid of my cat doing tricks work LOL instead of a vid of me .
