The Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience
By James Falconer on 13 Dec 2012 04:12 pm EST

Do you love mobile gaming? Are you active on Twitter and Facebook? Do you spend hours on end posting in Mobile Nations' communities? More important, have you ever wanted to attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and are available the second week of January next year? If you answered YES to all of these questions -- have we got an experience lined up for you!


There's no doubt that CES in Las Vegas is an event any tech junkie MUST attend at least ONCE in his or her lifetime. All of the latest and greatest (and sometimes bizarre) tech is at CES -- it's something to see. And even better than going to an event like CES as an outsider is to go insider. That's why we are thrilled to announce the "Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience," in which six lucky individuals will receive round-trip travel and accomodations for CES 2013, courtesy of NVIDIA Tegra! Woohoo! Keep reading for all the details

To Apply, Here's What You Need to Do:

1. Record a 30-second to 2-minute video - Fire up the video camera on your smartphone and record a quick video of yourself. Give a big hello to Mobile Nations and let us know which site(s) you're active on and why you love them. From there, tell us what your favorite mobile game is right now. Finally, tell us why you think we should select you to take part in this Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience. 

2. Submit Your Video - Upload your video to YouTube (you can leave it unlisted if you want). Then send an email to cesexperience@mobilenations.com with the link to your submission video. Be sure in your email to let us know your full name, address and phone number so we can get a hold of you if you're selected.

3. Like NVIDIA on Facebook or follow @NVIDIA on Twitter! - Show our friends at NVIDIA a little love. Recording and submitting your video is enough to enter, but we hope you'll go the 'extra mile' to show them your support! 

Not sure what to submit? See my sample video below for encouragement, support, and more details! :)

Get your video submissions in soon, because the deadline for entries is Friday, Dec. 21 at 11:59 p.m. EST. We will select and announce the 6 lucky recipients across all of Mobile Nations early the following week!

As it says in the post... North America. USA and Canada for this one. I guess you could always record a video if you really want to... you just can't win.

Maybe we can try and make similar events happen for MWC (Barcelona), etc.... open it up to people *not* in North America.

Eligibility: The Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience will be awarded to North American entrants only. Attendees must be at least 18 years of age.

Bah beaten by Kevin... didn't realize I had left this page without refreshing it :P

From Canada to USA just need your Canadian Passport. If you were "working" at the conference it would be different, but coming to a conference like this as an attendee you're good to go.

so good luck to the NA guys.... I would like to enter the contestm but as an european...whatever ;) nice contest!

NVIDIA should also spring for a pair of nubile scantily-clad ladies to be your CES escorts and valets-de-chambre for the entire trip...how better to keep up the spirit of Las Vegas?

Wow, this would be an AMAZING contest to win. Sadly, I haven't been a large contributor to the forums so I don't know what my chances would be like. I do have some ideas for a quick video, so I'll see what happens anyways. :)

I don't know....... Januhairy is uncertain. Gigs seem to be all over the place. Oh hell, I'll see about submitting the video, I have until the 21st to do so. :D

PS. I don't like using googletube (youtube) since they resorted to using e-mail address signing in now. If I used viddler.com and send the link, you can download and/or watch it easily. Pure HTML5 man. :) if I do throw it on youtube... I'll do so. :)
