Billboard magazine and LG Electronics have teamed up to organize what might turn out to be an interesting opportunity. If you're interested in covering concerts and related events by moblogging with a new enV LG phone, you can enter a contest on Billboard's Web site. Just submit a photo and a 100-word essay explaining why you think you should be one of 30 winners, and you're good to go. The deadline is June 15.
If you're selected, you'll get a free LG camera phone and the chance to document music events by posting photos and reviews to a blog featured on the magazine's Web site. Later on, in October 2007, Billboard will choose two runners up and a grand prize winner -- based on the the most popular blog. The grand prize winner will snag an all-expense paid trip for two to a Billboard Music Award show, and runners up get another LG phone.
I have no formal relationship with Billboard or LG. This isn't a paid-for post. I just think it's a neat opportunity to win a new phone and participate in a branded grassroots media experiment. Good luck to anyone who enters!
