Kordz is launching a four-day social media contest on Twitter rewarding creative AV geekiness by giving away their EVO HDMI cable to esteemed followers.
Day 1 & 2 (Tuesday & Wednesday) Kordz asks for wordsmiths to tweet their most creative acronym for HDMI while including @kordzcables and the hashtag #KordzContest in the tweet. Acronyms DON’T have to be relevant to consumer electronics, but extra credit awarded if it is.
Day 3 & 4 (Thursday & Friday) Kordz beckons those cursed with poor signal quality to simply tweet why they feel they need a new HDMI cable, again using @kordzcables and the hashtag #KordzContest.
One prize recipient will be chosen each day and announced at 5pm EST, winners will be selected based on creativity and cleverness and there’s no limit to the number of submissions you can make. The best responses will be featured in a follow-up blog entry to be posted after the contest ends.
Kordz is happy to get in the giving spirit, so follow @Kordzcables on twitter and tweet your best responses using #KordzContest for a chance to win.
The prize for each day is a Kordz EVO 3m High Speed HDMI cable. Contest dates are Tuesday December 7th through Friday December 10th.
