The PAPAGO! Video Contest has Begun

PAPAGO! logoAre you an aspiring filmmaker? Do you enjoy taking videos of yourself, your friends, or your travels? The PAPAGO! video contest was designed for people just like you. Three winners will be given a GoSafe 200 dashcam.

The contest has already started. You have until August 31, 2014, to submit a storyboard of your video idea to PAPAGO! They ask you to submit it via Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. They will select three winners from the submissions that are received.

Those winners will use the GoSafe 200 dashcam to video their storyboard idea. They will have until September 28, 2014, to submit the completed video to PAPAGO!, who will choose one top video. That winner will receive a $400.00 gift card (selected by PAPAGO!). The winner of the video contest will be announced by October 15, 2014.

There are, of course, rules and guidelines that must be adhered to. You can read more about them on the PAPAGO! website. I will point out just a few of the rules here. They encourage the contestants who are given a GoSafe 200 dashcam to be creative. “Take it out of the car. Record in the car. The possibilities are endless.”

The video must be 1 – 2 minutes in length and made from video footage that the contestant captures on the GoSafe 200. The videos will be highlighted on the PAPAGO! Website “and all social media platforms”. You must be 18 years of age (or older) and a legal resident of the United States or Canada in order to participate in this contest. Those who submit a video to the contest are giving PAPAGO! “the right to use their names, photographs, statements, quotes, testimonials, and video submissions for advertising, publicity, and promotional purposes without notification or further compensation.”

The GoSafe 200 has a 140 degree perspective and a unique slide-out LCD screen. It has an automatic start-up function and a motion detection feature that will enable the device to start recording once it detects movement. If you have a creative idea, now is your chance to enter the PAPAGO! video contest and, perhaps, win your very own GoSafe 200.

Enter for a Chance to Win a SensoGlove

With Father Day coming up in the United States and many sons and daughters are scrambling to try to get a gift for their Dad. If your father is a golfer may I suggest you put in an entry for the SensoGlove Digital Golf Glove Giveaway from the Dr. Phil Show. Actually if you are a golfer yourself or you know any golfer this would be a great contest to win. What is the SensoGlove.   SensoGlove measure your grip while golfing. It will let you know if you are gripping too tightly, something that can effect your swing and therefore your precision and distance. it has a series of sensors which are placed through out the glove and it will give you audio feedback if your grip becomes too tight. It produces feedback through out the swing, and not just in the beginning. It is light weight and feels like any other golf glove. You can remove the computer part without removing the glove.  My sister is a golfer and I know she would love something like this to help improve her games.

Unfortunately there is some bad news, you have to enter this contest by 11:59 PT today June 9th 2011, in order to have a chance win.  Enter now at this Website and you maybe one of the 10 lucky winners, no purchase required. You can find full contest rules at the Dr Phil Website.  Enter now before it is to late.   The glove has a retail price of $89.00, which makes it a great gift even if you don’t win the contest.  Hopefully contests like this will be coming to the Geek News Central Web site soon as our way to say thanks to our loyal readers and listeners.  If you are a merchant or business and have a contest that you think our listeners and readers might be interested in, we would love to hear from you.
