Heaven Media are proud to announce “The Alienware Backpacking Challenge”, a two-month competition that will see four gamers, selected from hopeful applicants from across Europe, to travel all over the continent.
Kitted out with an Alienware M11x laptop, a video camera, and a set of camping equipment, the four lucky participants will blog their way over mountains and seas, crossing borders and time zones, completing challenges before going up against each other in a weekly public vote.
With thousands of hopefuls expected to apply, competition will be fierce among the budding bloggers, and in the Alienware M11x they will find the perfect partner, providing the latest laptop technology in a stylish eleven-inch package, ideal for the long road ahead.
Ever wondered how many countries it’s possible to visit in a day on a budget? The best way to enjoy a high-adrenaline session of gaming while travelling at 300kmh, or while looking up to the heavens at an altitude of 3,500 feet? Wonder no more! For the entire two-month period, the four contestants will be blogging, video-blogging, tweeting and uploading pics, all hosted on their own individual site within the competition web site.
As each week goes past, everyone at home following their journeys will be asked to vote on that week’s winner, based on performance in the challenges, imagination and creativity, and blogging talent among other criteria. But these votes aren’t just for a weekly pat on the back. When the four meet up at the end of the eight weeks, at GamesCom in Cologne, only one of them can be crowned the Alienware Backpacker of the Year 2010, taking home the cash prize of $5,000!
Kicking off at Disneyland Paris, during the Electronic Sports World Cup, the bloggers will be released into the wild on June 30th, having received their first challenge, giving them until August 22nd to win the public over to their side.
