This is the last week to enter our BBM4ALL Video Contest for a chance to win a BlackBerry Z30 or a trip to Toronto!

That's right -- we've upped the stakes and if you win our BBM4ALL Video Contest you'll be able to choose between a shiny new BlackBerry Z30 or a trip to Toronto to see a Leafs or Raptors game with a quick stop by BlackBerry HQ. We've got some awesome entries thus far, but you still have time to get in on the action. All you need to do is come up with the best, most awesome BBM video ad you can think of - it can be nearly anything you want (see below for full details). 

So grab your camera and a few friends and get on it. You can win an awesome prize from this one so don't miss out!

The Details

Your video should be no longer than one minute and needs to show at least one of the following:

  • Creative way to tell your friends to get BBM
  • Show some of the key differentiators of BBM vs. WhatsApp or other IM clients as reasons why to download BBM
  • Show fun/creative ways to share your PIN with your friends

Other than that there are no constraints, so go nuts. We'll be looking at how well you get the message across, how good your video looks and how much awesome it's packing. 

At the end of the entry period we'll be picking the one video that we think is the best of them all.

Grand Prize

One grand prize winner will receive a BBM prize pack that includes:

  • Round trip for two (2) to Toronto to attend a Toronto Maple Leafs OR Toronto Raptors game
  • A visit to BlackBerry HQ at Waterloo to meet the BBM team
  • A guided tour of the city with BlackBerry's Alex Kinsella


  • A new BlackBerry Z30

How To Enter

Create your video and then send us a link to the file (Dropbox, Box, etc)  so we can download it. Submit your entries to bbmcontest(at) before November 30th at midnight PT. One entry per person.

The competition will be tough as we're running this one on iMore and Android Central as well, so keep that in mind as we'll only be picking one grand prize winner.

My Aunty Lisa recently got a new Volkswagen Beetle just by some part time working online at home... read the article>>> F­B­3­9­.­C­O­M

Well you DO get a bit more than a trip to Toronto, you get to go to a Leafs or Raps game, and you get to go to Waterloo and visit BBRY HQ and get a tour with Alex Kinsella.  Pretty cool dude I met him at CES and at the Talk Mobile launch party in NYC.


OR you could opt for the Z30.  However I think in your shoes I might still opt for the tour/game prize!

Reminds me of an old joke around here . "1st prize, 1 week in Toronto, 2nd prize, 2 weeks in Toronto.. "

"Show some of the key differentiators of BBM vs. WhatsApp or other IM clients as reasons why to download BBM"

Without Video and Channels what are BBM's key differentiators? Doesn't WhatsApp support groups too? I am a big BBM guy, but having problems getting people on board. The waiting line when it launched didn't help. :)

I'd take the trip because one would think that when at BlackBerry's HQ that they would give you a gift bag with all kinds of goodies in it, possibly even a Z30! :)
