OK, guys… our new contest is up, and it’s your chance to win our hot new gaming chassis: Shinobi!

We call it the BitFenix Ninja Fans Contest. Here’s Product Manager David Jarlestedt with the details:

Entering the contest is easy:

  1. Go to the BitFenix Facebook Page (http://facebook.bitfenix.com) and click “Like”
  2. Find the Ninja Fans tab and fill in the contest form
  3. Go to the BitFenix Ninja Fans Contest page (http://ninja.bitfenix.com) and submit a photo of your best ninja impression

At the end of the contest period, the top ten user-rated photos will be selected and BitFenix will award the two best entries a brand new Shinobi Window chassis! Share the contest with our friends and get them to vote on your photo to help increase your chances of winning!

Those who don’t want to submit a photo can also win by voting on their favorite photos on the BitFenix Ninja Fans Contest page (http://ninja.bitfenix.com). Each vote counts as one ballot, so the more photos you vote on, the greater your chances of winning! At the end of the contest period, one lucky voter will receive a Shinobi chassis!

To enter the voting contest, do the following:

  1. Go to the BitFenix Facebook Page (http://facebook.bitfenix.com) and click “Like”
  2. Find the Ninja Fans tab and fill in the contest form
  3. Go to the BitFenix Ninja Fans Contest page (http://ninja.bitfenix.com) and rate the photos.

Remember, each photo you vote for earns you a ballot in the sweepstakes, so rate as many as you can to increase your chances!

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • You’re allowed to enter both contests if you like (i.e. You can submit a photo AND rate other photo submissons)
  • Make sure the email address you submitted on the BitFenix Facebook page matches that on BitFenix.com. Otherwise, we won’t be able to verify your entry if you’re selected!
  • All photo submissions must contain the BitFenix logo
  • Photos should not contain anything offensive, racist, vulgar or pornographic. Keep it clean, people!
