Update: As of this morning, we have unfortunately filled all 50 positions we’re allowed in the Ausdroid Vault crew.
Last night, Samsung and Vodafone announced a nationwide social competition known as The Vault with a grand prize of 50 – yep, fifty – Galaxy S5 phones. Participants can form crews of up to 50 people and pool their talents, wits and resources in order to win the phones.
There’s a weekly combination you’ll need to discover from clues given out daily by Vodafone and Samsung, and a weekly challenge will involve shooting particular photos or videos for additional clues to the combination and prizes. Clues might be puzzles, riddles or even crosswords. Crews must crack the weekly combination to proceed to the Grand Final on Sunday July 6.
Participants can also take advantage of an offer to receive a Gear Fit and a 12-month subscription to Samsung Music Hub free if they take up a Galaxy S5 on a 12- or 24-month contract with Vodafone.
The competition opens on Monday – that’s when the first combination will be available to crack online. There’s also a handy video to explain it all!
Let’s do it!
Think you’ve got what it takes? Awesome – we do, too!
We know from chatting with Vodafone staff last night that geographical spread will be advantageous to cracking the combinations, so that’s where you come in, readers! We want to form a team that includes people in every state, every capital city (and some minor ones too) who have local knowledge and are willing to go out and participate in the challenges.
If we win, you’re getting a Galaxy S5. For free. What have you got to lose?
Ausdroid’s crew is open for signups! We’ll form a Google+ community and coordinate team communication and combination results there.
When you click the link, you’ll go to The Vault website. Sign up there for an account and then you’ll be able to join Ausdroid’s crew.
We’ll get the crew and community up and running over the next few days.
Whether you join our crew or not, good luck to everyone who’s entering! We’ll be following The Vault as the competition – and our crew – progresses!
