This competition is now over! Click here to see the winners!
Thanks to the excellent folks at Gigabyte, we’ve got ourselves a bunch of fantastic hardware to give away — and we want to give it away to you. We’ve got three prize packs up for grabs, each of which contains a brand-spanking-new Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7970 Windforce Series as well as an Aivia Osmium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (check out our review right here).
Oh wow, I need this. How do I enter?!
There are three different categories in this competition. You may only enter this competition once so make sure you pick the category you want to enter.
Please be aware this competition is open to Australian residents only.
In 150 words or less, tell us about the best piece of hardware you’ve ever owned. Graphics card, mouse, dodgy old yellow monitor, it doesn’t matter — why do you love it, what makes it special to you, and do you still have it lying around? The best entry will win the prize for this category.
If words aren’t your thing, you can draw us a picture. The picture must show what you would look like and how you would feel if you were to win this category: draw yourself screaming in excitement for example, or perhaps triumphantly riding a unicorn. It’s up to you.
The drawing must be done in MS Paint (or the equivalent Mac/Linux program) and must feature the games.on.net logo drawn somewhere on it (to prove you didn’t just steal the picture). Upload the drawing to an image host (such as imgur) and leave it in the comments – the best drawing will win the prize for this category! You may only submit one drawing.
Bake a cake for us! To prove you really made it and didn’t just steal a photo from the internet, the cake must have the games.on.net logo on it somewhere. Take a photo of yourself with the cake, upload it to an image host (such as imgur) and leave it in the comments. The most impressive cake will take home the prize in this category. You may submit up to three (3) photos of your cake in order to show it off from various angles.
There will be one winner in each category, and three winners in total. Each winner takes home a prize pack with both the card and the keyboard in it!
Your entry must be submitted as a comment on this article, using the following format:
CATEGORY: Writing / Drawing / Baking (use only the one you’re entering in)
ENTRY: Your entry here (words or a picture)
How long do I have?
The competition is open from now until 11:59 PM ACDT (Adelaide time) on Tuesday 22nd January. Winners will be chosen and announced before the end of that week.
