This is the end. Beau-tif-ul end, my friend. Five weeks and hours of Giz reader video reviews later, we have a winner for Gizmodo and Sony’s big prize: A trip to January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Drumroll...
....who is apparently at work right now with his phone switched off. Yeah, I'm at work too I guess — but c'mon Ben, the party is starting without you! And by party, I think I ate too much pizza while the judges were reviewing entries. Anyway, please join the Giz team in congratulating Ben and welcome him to the fold.
We enjoyed his take on tech and were impressed with those 4am behind-the-scenes video blogs. Looking forward to you joining us in Las Vegas!
Before Red Bull
Ben, we'll be in touch shortly to organise your Sony Vaio S laptop, Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V camera and flight details. You’ll hang out at CES with Sony peeps and Danny from Gizmodo while Alex is off gallivanting around Europe on holidays and Nick holds down the fort here in Australia. Your trip includes:
Las Vegas return airfare flights from your nearest capital city. Leave Australia Sunday 8th January 2012, depart United States Friday 13th January 2012. Also covered: Five night accommodation at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. See our full terms and conditions for more.
Geoff, Michael, Muhammad, Bianca — congratulations also! You've each picked up a Android-powered Sony Tablet S (16GB) valued at $579.
Shout out to John, Christian, Lindsay, Zorine, Daniel, Chris K and Chris P — you all pick up a Sony Entertainment Pack valued at $50.
We'll be in touch soon via email to organise all your prizes.
Thanks again to everyone who entered. The response started small — but holy crap were we blown away by the end. The volume and quality of entries are a credit to all you guys, the readers behind this crazy thing we call Gizmodo.
This was been one of the biggest competitions we've run, and we'll be highlighting some of the best video reviews as their own posts in the coming weeks.
