Vitaminwater, which is an affiliate of Coca-Cola is now letting smartphone users enter a contest wherein you could share on Instagram your ideas on a smartphone-free life; essentially detailing how you would prefer to utilize your non-smartphone time. You could use social media platforms viz Twitter and Instagram to share your stories; for this, Vitaminwater has created a custom hashtag #nophoneforayear; you could tag that and present your ideas.

Once  your idea of an year without smartphones is approved, you get to enter the contest where you would be provided a basic feature phone to make/receive calls and check out text messages. After the end of the one-year period, you would be subjected to a “lie-detector test” to check genuineness of your having lived without your smartphones for a year claim.

Once you enter into the contest, you could use computers; both desktops and laptops; along with voice assistants present within devices that are not smartphones. Even tablets are not allowed to be used as you would be bound under a contract with Vitaminwater for a period of 365 days.

In case you last 6 months into the contract, you would be eligible for a $10,000 reward. Here, you could prefer to withdraw as well (after 6 months) in case you have met all other eligibility criteria. The feature phone offered to you would contain prepaid monthly subscription plans.

Here, you should remember that your post on social media (as described above) about not using smartphones would be judged based on the below factors (scoring system):

  • Originality and creativity
  • Relevance of submission; based on brands
  • Humour factor
  • Your quality of ideas presented.

If your entry manages to get the highest score, then you would be declared as the winner and eligible to enter into the grand contest that offers $100,000 for going a year without smartphones. The winners, here, would be announced on January 22 2019. The contest is now underway and you could send in your entries to Vitaminwater; you have till January 8 2019 to submit entries.
