The seasons are changing, y'all, and you know what that means! It's ugly sweater season and RIM is having its very own Ugly Sweater Contest on Twitter. Here's what you'll need:
- A twitter account that follows @BlackBerry
- A BlackBerry device
- Download the free BlackBerry Avatar Builder (boy or girl) from the App World
- Download the free Ugly Sweater Expansion Pack from the App World
- Your very own personalized avatar complete with its own ugly sweater
Once you've completed those easy steps, tweet your Ugly Sweater Avatar to @BlackBerry using the hashtag "#BBMUglySweater" as well as your most desired BlackBerry device of the holiday season. Lucky for y'all, you're able to actually enter this contest ten (10) times! How awesome is that? But you better hurry, the contest ends tonight at midnight, eastern standard time. Once the time is up, contest judges will pick 30 finalists based on previously decided criteria (i.e. creativeness, awesomeness, uniqueness..). If you're picked as a finalist, you will be contacted via Twitter. The winners will get two tickets to #BBMUglySweater Fan Night being held at the Silver Aspen Social Club in New York City on December 21, 2011. Once there, the winners will also receive their very own BlackBerry 7 device and a prize pack full of BlackBerry goodies! Of course, if you're lucky enough to win, you'll have to pay for your own transportation to and from this party. To be eligible to receive the BlackBerry 7 device and prizes, you must be present at the Fan Night. You can find more details on the @BlackBerry Twitter page or read the Official Contest Rules. Now pull out those BlackBerrys and start adorning your avatars in ugly sweaters!
