Win a “Bold” Adventure to Africa, Costa Rica or Australia

Comments

There’s a cool contest going on right now with RIM and Verizon to promote the new BlackBerry Bold 9650. This weekend in NYC, contest administrators will be going around and taking video testimonials on a BlackBerry Bold 9650 from Verizon. Participants will answer the question, “How do you live your life bold?” The boldest video wins one of three bold adventures: an African safari, a diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef, or a Costa Rican rainforest trip. Be Bold has already been to Boston and gathered up some great bold testimonials. After NYC, they’ll be headed to Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco.

Readers can also join the Live Bold. Be Bold. Facebook fan page for a chance to win the new BlackBerry Bold (the fan page will be giving away one smartphone per week). For more free giveaways, BlackBerry fans can visit the events in their cities.

Click through for an example of the sort of video that is being submitted.
