FLASH FICTION CONTEST: Giving away 3 Nokia X3 Phones

UPDATE: Please see rules. I failed to include the limit of characters.

Hello! New year, new contest! And this January, we are starting with Nokia. Nikka Abes of Nokia Philippines has ordered three Nokia X3 Touch and Type phones. SRP is PHP 8,999. The Xseries is the revamped XpressMusic line of Nokia, perhaps the line which I personally find to be most succesful with its value proposition for entertainment. So we have 3 and we’re giving it away. But here’s how it will work.


1. There will be three winners of three mini-contests. The first contest will end 11:59PM of Wednesday. The second deadline is 11:59PM of Friday and the third will end 11:59PM of Sunday.

2. The contest is FLASH FICTION. If you don’t know what it is, this is the type of creative fiction which you can do with as little words as possible. The limit is 144 characters (including the space and periods, commas, etc) so if your limit is essentially one Tweet. Leave the entries in my comments section.

Example: Perhaps the most famous is the work by Hemmingway which goes something like: For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.. English / Filipino / Taglish entries are OK. Avoid abbreviations.

3. The themes:

HORROR Monday – Wednesday 11:59PM
ROMANTIC COMEDY Thursday midnight – Friday 11:59PM
MYSTERY Saturday midnight – Sunday 11:59PM

As you can see, themes are pretty generic. Have fun!

Clock is based on the timestamp of the comments.

4. I’m choosing the winner. If there are any discrepancies with the rules whatsoever, I’ll have final say with the rules after considering the comments from readers. Winners wil be announced a couple of hours after each mini contest ends, also announcing the beginning of the new series.

5. This contest is open to everyone from the Philippines. if you live outside the PH, we will have to ship the prize to you courtesy of Nokia. They will take care of it. If you won once, you can’t win again. But you can submit as many entries as you wish (you can even combine them if you want). Entries that are heavily offensive / done in bad taste / pornographic won’t be counted. PG-13 allowed.
