Yellow Brick Road.com Grand Opening Contest

This contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered! Take some time to check out the entries in the comments below.


Yellow Brick Road.com is live and ready for our users to build resumes and send them out to eager employers. To celebrate the occasion, we’re holding our first (and only) grand opening contest. Yes, we will be giving away three (3) prizes: 1 iPad 2 and 2 iPod Touches. Here are the deets:

HOW TO ENTER

1. Register for a Yellow Brick Road profile. Yep, that big yellow thing in the sidebar. That’s the ticket! If you’ve already registered with us, continue to step 2.

2. Upload the funniest image of yourself. Keep it PG. Any conspicuous nakedness or naughtiness will get you the boot.*

3. In the Objective box, write the funniest objective statement possible. Keep it clean. Excessive profanity or inappropriate subject matter will get you the boot.*

4. Grab the URL for your new page and paste it in the comments below. Then blast it out to your friends so they can see your handiwork and visit in droves.

HOW TO WIN

Well, that depends on the prize…

The 16 GB iPad 2 with WiFi

This gem goes to the entrant with the most traffic to their profile page. This means you’ll want to get your peeps coming to your page. Paste that URL on your blog, on others’ blogs, on Facebook, and on Twitter. I mean, we’re talking one of the hottest pieces of consumer technology on the market. Really, there’s nothing you shouldn’t do for this beauty. Whoever gets the most pageviews on the profile pages, according to the sages at Google Analytics, wins the iPad 2.

The 8 GB iPod Touch

We’re giving away two (count ‘em, 2) of these bad boys. One to each of the following:
1. User w/ the funniest profile image
2. User w/ the funniest objective

These will be judged solely by the YellowBrickRoad team. Trust us–we know funny.

The contest runs from today (June 24, 2011) to July 25, 2011 at 4:00 PM MST. I repeat, the contest deadline is at 4:00 PM MST, July 25.

Official Rules
All entrants must be US residents, 18 years or older. Multiple entries are not allowed. Entrants must complete the registration process of YellowBrickRoad.com and enter their profile URL in the contest page comments to qualify for any of the contest prizes. Failure to do so by the deadline will disqualify an individual from the contest. YellowBrickRoad.com reserves the right to re-publish any profile images or objective statements entered into the contest without the consent of the entrant. YellowBrickRoad.com will not sell nor use contestants’ information for anything outside of notifying entrants or otherwise communicating with entrants. The contest will be cancelled unless a minimum of 30 qualifying entries have been entered by 3:59pm MST, 7/25/11. YellowBrickRoad.com reserves the right to cancel the contest at any time for any reason. *Nudity, pornographic images, or racially offensive, drug-affiliated, or otherwise inappropriate images, or images that may be deemed as such by the YellowBrickRoad.com editorial team, will disqualify entrants from consideration for the iPod Touch.

So get to work and don’t forget to paste your profile URL in the comments below. Good luck!

        It was a dune bug I think, but that was just a placeholder :)

      That definitely ranks as our most ambitious objective statement yet. Thanks for entering!

        Just an FYI, I’ve updated that objective statement a few times and haven’t seen it update… Firefox 5.0, Win 7 64bit, have the roboform toolbar installed (auto-pw filling) and adblock plus.

    My objective is pretty sweet but it won’t save. :-(

    Here it is: It’s my objective to recreate my childhood antics in my adult life. Including singing La Bamba on tabletops with a turkey baster as my microphone eventhough I’ve been asked to never sing in public to feeling compeletely statisifed with a diet composed of heads of cabbage, yellow cheese and S cookies.
