When was the last time you were in your grandma’s attic? How about your great uncle’s stuffy basement? Chances are, it’s been a while. If you are brave enough to go hunting in those places, you may just have the chance to get rewarded from Abt.com. Right now, Abt.com is looking for the most treasured antique electronics and appliances around. Unlike any contest that has been done before, Abt is calling on people to dust off those buried items and find out what they are worth!
Announcing the Antique to Abt-ique Contest, launching May 1, 2012 through October 31, 2012. Over the next six months, contestants can submit their antiques via online video and photo submissions on Abt Electronics’ Facebook page. Each month, a winner will be chosen based on their product’s appraised value, age and uniqueness. These six monthly winners will also be eligible for the Antique to Abt-tique Grand Prize of a new, top-of-the-line laundry pair from LG, the Titan Series Washer and Gas Dryer.
Participants must ‘like’ Abt Electronics’ Facebook page in order to view the Antique to Abt-ique Contest application where they can upload their digital entry. Product categories will be assigned to each month and relevant items can be entered at that appropriate time. Digital submissions must be in TIF, PNG, JPG, GIF, MOV, MPEG, AVI or WMV format and all files must be no larger than 5 megabytes. Contestants will also need to include a written description of their antique and any relevant details including, date manufactured, product history, and/or personal story connected to the item. Good luck and happy hunting!
