Amazon Wireless, TalkAndroid and others team up to give you $15,000 in prizes in a video contest

Do you hate shopping around for a new phone? Would rather do something more fun with your time, like eating mud? Sure, we love phone shopping, but hey… we’re geeks. So, we’ve teamed up with Amazon, as well as our friends at Android Police, Android and Me, and Phone Dog to let you tell us how Amazon Wireless helps you shop for your mobile device… and, hey – you can win some cash, too – as much as $5,000, with a grand total of $15,000 in prizes.

We’re going to be part of the judging panel for a slew of videos that are sure to be coming in, where you will tell the world why shopping with Amazon Wireless can make your next phone buying experience easier. The cash, you ask? Yea… that’s a pretty sweet deal. Hit the break for a full rundown of how to enter and prizes. You can also hit Amazon’s blog page.

Basically, we’re looking for a 60-second (or less) video from you explaining the following:

  • Great Selection – Creatively demonstrate how AmazonWireless offers a broad selection of phones so that customers have access to the devices they desire.
  • Customer Reviews and Detailed Product Content – Show how customer reviews and detailed product content help users discover and choose the device that’s right for them and avoid missing out on the latest and greatest features, or conversely, buying a phone with features they don’t want or need.
  • Legendary Service – Amazon is synonymous with customer service excellence. Illustrate how AmazonWireless can save the day with its free and fast shipping or 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
  • Great Prices – Many of today’s hottest devices cost as little as one penny to buy. Display how AmazonWireless saves you money while helping you enhance your mobile experience.
  • Accessories, Apps and More – AmazonWireless not only brings Amazon features to the phone shopping experience, but also makes it easy for you to find all the things you need to take your device to the next level.

Note: No 3rd Party logos are allowed, regardless of phone, carrier, store, app, or OS. The AmazonWireless logo is the only one permitted.

  • Demonstrating the value of AmazonWireless (25%)
