In collaboration with Newegg, we're giving away a PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 Boost, a 1TB Samsung P3 Portable External Drive, and a Rosewill Throne gaming case. Entering the contest for a shot at the three prizes is simple: gather some PC components, put them together to look like a person or a robot, and post a photo of the result.
- You can use any combination of PC parts, so long as the result is anthropomorphic in some way.
- You can use non-PC parts, such as shoes, clothing, and glasses, but try to keep those to a minimum.
- You can only post one image. That image should be no wider than 800 pixels and must include your user name, the current date, and "techreport.com" on a piece of paper. (Photoshopping those details into a photo is not acceptable.)
Here's an example of a possible contribution to get your imagination going:
Sorry, but this contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (except Quebec) only.
Only one entry is allowed per person.
We will be accepting giveaway entries until August 12, 2013 at noon CDT, at which point this thread will be locked. TR staffers will then confer and select a winner from among all eligible entries. The winner will be announced on the site on August 13 and will also be notified via private message in the forums. The winner must claim his prize within 72 hours, or he will forfeit his prize, and we will draw a new winner.
All contributions must include the contributor's forum username, the date the picture was taken, and "techreport.com" on a piece of paper inside the image. Those details cannot be added using photo-editing software after the picture is taken. Entries that do not meet this requirement will be disqualified. We also reserve the right to disqualify entries that are apparent attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way.
The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.
No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. Neither TR nor Newegg are responsible for any taxes on the prizes, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prizes with other products, or health issues such as repetitive strain injury, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prizes.
