Meet Gizmodo's CES 2013 Guest Blogger!

After countless video submissions, hours of audition tape screenings and hundreds of votes from readers, we can finally reveal the winner of Gizmodo and Seagate’s big prize: a trip to the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. So who won?

Congratulations to…

Adam Hallett

Adam sent us an amazing entry video back in November where he reviewed the GoPro HD Hero 2 action camera. Adam’s review was sharp, informative, to the point and very pleasant to watch what with the chroma-keyed titles, beautiful music and good prop work. Adam also impressed us with a sweet multi-camera review and a few friends to hand him cards. To cap it all off, Adam ended his video with an amazing orgy of gadgets which spelled out the Gizmodo Australia logo. Well played, Mr Hallett.

Not only does Adam win an amazing trip to Las Vegas in January to cover CES 2013 with us, he’s also picked up some gear to do it with. We’ll be giving him an Asus Zenbook UX32A Notebook and a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS camera to help him report on the show.

Looking forward to tearing it up in Vegas, Adam! Oh, and doing some tech reporting too, I guess.


Finalists

Unfortunately, we can’t take all of you to CES which makes me sad, but we’ve got some awesome runner-up prizes from Seagate to give away instead!

Lindsay Handmer

(Editor’s Choice Runner-Up)

Lindsay is an example of one of the truly awesome entries we received. How can you say no to a guy chainsawing a laptop before firing arrows at it? You can’t. That’s why he gets a 500GB Seagate Backup Plus for his efforts. Nice one, Lindsay!

Ahbi Pai

(Readers’ Choice Runner-Up)

Ahbi’s Samsung Galaxy SIII review fell into the favour of the readers, which lands him a shiny new 500GB Seagate Backup Plus hard drive. Congratulations Ahbi!

Thank You

Thanks so much to everyone who entered, voted, viewed, commented or shared the CES 2013 competition. It started off small but the volume of entries we got towards the end was really excellent and the quality of the videos were excellent. Massive props to all of you for participating and we can’t wait to bring you the amazing CES 2013 content live from Las Vegas!

We’ll certainly be highlighting some of the best video content as reader reviews in the coming weeks leading up to the show.
