Exclamation "Critica" Competition! Win $100 dollars with your Spanish review!

Hola foreros,

It's competition time!

You can win the $100 prize (in cash or iTunes/Amazon vouchers), and you get to practice your Spanish at the same time!

Here is the idea:

You have to write or video a review, in Spanish, of something you use all the time. Could be your car, your iPod, shoes, kitchen sink, a taxi service, bus, TV program, the latest Harry Potter (but don't give anything away!), a biro, buffalo.... anything you like, just review it, in Spanish! You can tell us how wonderful something is, or how much you hate it - be honest!

The prize will be given for style, content, inventive use of Spanish words and fun-factor, not overall Spanish level. Again, the most interesting/fun/amusing review will win, not the review written/recorded in the best Spanish. Imagination is the key!

Here are the rules:

All entries must be posted here in the forum, and must be either written, or in video blog format (see here for how to post your video blogs in the forum).

Written entries must be between 200 and a MAXIMUM of 600 words.

Video blogs must be a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes long, 2 to 3 minutes is probably about right.

Entries must be in by Sunday August 12th (winner announced on August 13th).

Entries must be written or recorded in Spanish!

Each entry must be posted in a new thread, started by you, with the title of the thread beginning "Critica de..." and can be posted in the Spanish videoblogs or En Español sections of the forum.

Good luck!

Any people here who commute to the rice paddies every morning, riding on the back of their water buffaloes?

Seriously though, it sounds like a great idea! And like fun, too!

Well, I think I'll put something together when my iLife '08 arrives. Then I'll experiment and make a total fool of myself again with a little vid in Spanish.
