Here's our full terms and conditions for the competition – good luck!
Competition Dates: Monday 28 November 2011 to Monday 5 December
Entry: Entrants must be aged 18 or over. To enter this Competition, contact @O2 on Twitter and ask for a unique tracking URL for our Can You Android video. Once you have a URL – which will begin http://bit.ly – you need to try and get as many people to click your URL as possible. This can be through tweeting it, using other social networks to spread the word or another method entirely.
Judging Criteria and Judging Date: The winner will be the person who has received the most clicks on their URL by the closing date. Only links generated by O2 are valid and only genuine clicks by real people will count. O2 reserves the right to exclude entrants at its sole discretion where we feel that they’ve broken this rule.
Two further prizes will be awarded to the two people our panel feels exhibited the most creativity in promoting the video.
Prize: The prizes are three Sony Ericsson arc S smartphones, one per prize winner.
