You're shipwrecked and left all alone on a deserted island. You scream for help, light a smoke signal and seek out food, water and shelter, but then boredom sets in. The sudden realization of how much you will miss TLA's amazingly sophisticated and edgy selection of home entertainment products brings tears to your eyes.
As you wipe the tears from your eyes you see an empty glass bottle on the shoreline. The bottle could be useful in carrying some water but the best use would be to send TLA a "message in a bottle" with a list of 10 items you need on this deserted island and why. You can choose any 10 items carried by TLA's family of brands: TLAgay, TLA RAW, TLA Cult, TLAvideo and TLAstyle. Your message (entry) will give you the chance to win a grand prize of a home entertainment system* (Valued at over $700) – just what you need for those steamy days and cold and lonely island nights! (5) First prize winners and (5) second prize winners will receive $50 and $25 in TLA Bonus Cash respectively.
Step One: Think of 10 items from TLA that you need on a desert island and why. Remember you will be spending long hot days and cold nights all alone and bored.
Step Two: Share your list of 10 items along with the reasons that you'd need them with us. Your entry may take the form of a written paragraph, photo, audio track, video, link to a blog post or social media post. Your entry will be judged by a crew of TLA staff. Creativity, brutal honesty and irreverence will weigh in your favor. Don't be shy - you may earn bonus points by dressing up as favorite iconic island castaway ala Gilligan's Island, Lost, Castaway, etc. and by sharing your entry on external blogs and social media outlets.
Step Three: Email your submission* (please just send a link if your submission is a web video, web audio, blog post or social media post) to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 31st, 2013 at 11:59PM ET. Check out our Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages all month long as we share some of the funniest, most outrageous and creative entries we get.
Step Four: Wait and see if you’re the lucky winner! Winners will be notified on or around September 20th, 2013.
Entrants must be signed up for at least one TLA email in order to claim prizes.
