Our TV Makeover contest has now ended and you blew us away with your awesome entries! We had everything from wood covered floor models to dated tube TVs and your creative descriptions had us smiling since we announced the contest last month.
Earlier today, a panel of three judges reviewed all the entries and narrowed down the entries to five finalists. We based our decision on three main criteria: creative image, best description in 100 words and overall originality.
Later today, we’ll be doing a draw of these five finalists for the grand prize winner who will receive a total Rogers NextBox 2.0 facelift valued at over $5,000 which includes:
- A super narrow 55” Samsung™ LED Smart TV with HD and 3D technology
- A Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE tablet
- A Rogers NextBox HD PVR & HD Terminal
- Platinum NextBox 2.0 package for 6 months
In random order, here are our top five TV Makeover finalists:
Peter from Toronto: My dad worked very hard to buy a tv for us kids(6 kids)and i want to win this tv for him,love u dad.
Linda from Kitchener: these entries may be old,but you can see by the lonely cable,I don’t even have one. Can I win? Plz.
Susan from Orillia: The timing of the contest couldn’t be better, because unfortunately this is my current setup!
Howard from Richmond Hill: I need a TV makeover because my TV is so old I can not watch any DVDs nor play any video games on it
Mike from Ottawa: It’s bad enough I live in my parents basement, but bringing my imaginary dates home to this?! HELP!!
It was really tough to select only 5 so we wanted to give honourable mentions to the following entries as well:
- Doreen from Smooth Rock Falls
- Jon from London
- Pauline from Newmarket
- David from London
- Sid from Richmond Hill
We’ll be updating this post to announce the grand prize winner soon. Stay tuned!
