YugaTech Contest: Show me your PC, win 1TB!




This is the 1st of a series of 4 contests for the YugaTech-Western Digital giveaways. And as the title says, all you need to do to join is “show me your PC“.

Take a photo of your laptop, desktop or your workstation and share it with us by uploading it online. See below for complete mechanics:

1) Take a photo of your workstation — it could be a laptop, a nettop or a desktop PC.

2) Use this image as the wallpaper of your station when you take the photo (download here). This will allow us to know that the photo is new and/or original.

3) Upload your photo to any photo sharing site (Flickr, Picasa, Twitpic, etc.) or post in your blog or website. The photo must be publicly accessible — not set in private, locked or anything that requires a password or login.

4) Leave a comment in this blog post with the URL to your photo, gallery or blog entry. Don’t forget to go to the WD Philippines Facebook Page and Add/Like them.

So what are we looking for?

The photo should convey the idea “why you need an extra terabyte hard drive” without actually saying/writing it. We’ll be in the look out for the weirdest or cutest or funniest or most creative or most kick-ass workstation. It’s up to you how you shoot the photo.

What we’re giving away this week?

How’s a 1 Terabyte Western Digital Caviar Black SATA 3 (6 Gb/s) sound?

Contest starts today until midnight of August 17, 2010. You have 1 week to submit your entries. We’ll announce the winner on or before Friday that week so we can run the next contest the Monday after.

Note: You can send as many entries as you want, just make sure you leave a comment with the link for each entry you submit. YugaTech and WD Philippines will jointly pick the winner for the week.

You can help spread news of this contest by sharing this on your Facebook wall or post this on your Twitter:

  35. eripples says:

    i sent questions to Abe Olandres regarding the criteria of this contest. He replied to me via Twitter and said:

    “haba ng questions mo ah. We don’t want to be limiting so diskarte mo na. WD Phils. will only judge the photo concept.”

    Thought id like to share to you my questions.

    1. Does the photo have to be the whole workstation or the desktop only like this http://ow.ly/2nUEB ?

    2. When you say that “The photo should convey the idea “why you need an extra terabyte hard drive” without actually saying/writing it” is it okay to include objects in
    the photo that “says” or “has words on it” like this photo for example http://twitpic.com/2dky4m ?

    3. Does “being realistic” and “practical” part of the criteria? Because obviously if you happen to have a Mac and the owner’s using it for office works only, it doesnt
    really convey “why you need an extra terabyte hard drive”.

    And some entries might fake things or come up with objects so it would appear as such.

    4. Does it matter if a photo is taken using DSLR? Other words, is photo quality a criterion?

    5. Does my entry need to be my own workstation? Or can I take a photo of someone else’s. How do you verify if in case?

    6. I noticed that some entries come with captions and notes especially those posted on your blog and on the entry itself. For example, someone wrote in the caption “I need a hard drive for my movie collection”. Will it affect judging?

    Are captions allowed?

    7. Is the prize a plug and play external hard drive?

    8. When you say that “you can send as many entries as you want”, does that mean many entries or different shots of the same workstation? Or shots of different workstations?

    9. Is it okay to add Photoshop edits, like adjusting brightness, contrast. etc

    Again, here’s Abe Olandres’ only response to my questions.

    “haba ng questions mo ah. We don’t want to be limiting so diskarte mo na. WD Phils. will only judge the photo concept.”

    I hope WD Philippines can also contribute their response.

    I already liked Western Digital and even Yugatech Page on facebook.

  132. I beieve I deserve an extra terabyte because I only have 3.41GB out of 99.9GB left in my laptop’s hard drive. And since I’m into photography and a graphic design, I’m almost always trying to find a place where I can put all my files.

    I use it mainly on my freelance work such as Graphic Design, Photography, Motion Graphics and Web Development. Which also means hugging the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5 is a must for me along with a slice of Corel Draw and Sony Vegas on the side.

    I must say, editing an HD video eats up the half of the storage of this machine already despite of the twin 500gb installed on this baby!!

    Wow grabe nman yan!!! super tagal nila i announce ang mga winner, anu ba talaga “Sige sa december nyo na lang i announce” hay naku panaparami nyo lang ata sa pag click sa site nyo, asar na kung asar tama na ang kalokohan, lamunin nyo yang Tera Bite nyo

    Sana hindi na lang ako nag pass ng entry, sa walang kwentang pa contest , I a’m sorry to say that na sasayang na nga ang oras ko sa pag check araw araw kung may update pati pira ng nanay ko sayang n sayang
    bwehh, masmaganda na iignore ko na lang to!!!!!!! bye TIRA BITE

  201. Cliff Rosario says:

    hmm.. It’s taking quite sometime nga..di naman obvious maraming sabik malaman.. and Tera Bite lost his temper.. I know Abe and WD might have a reasons.. but hope that promo pushes through..

  202. Cliff Rosario says:

    I do sure hope this promo still pushes through.. There might be a good reason from WD why they haven’t uploaded the winners yet.. for Tera Byte.. ok lang yan.. wag masyado mainit ulo.. ganyan talaga pag libre sometimes you just can’t help it..

  203. Jedd says:

    It’s okay to have a delay. It’s the lack of common courtesy and thoughtlessness that’s a problem. Kahit naman lang an official blog post acknowledging the situation from the owner of the site. A polite “Hey, guys. We know you’re expecting something this Friday but we’re really sorry that this isn’t going to be possible yet. Do stay stuned though and thank you for the patience.” Ano yung reason for not saying anything on the blog?

  204. Cliff Rosario says:

    I agree Jedd

    @Erick

    That’s not an official blog post. It’s the 405th comment posted five days ago to a blog entry that was started way back on August 11. One has to dig through to notice this announcement. It would have been better to create a new post so that it easily shows up in the feeds/immediately on the front page, where everyone is most likely to see it, don’t you think?

  208. yuga says:

    Hi Everyone!

    My apologies for the extended delay. I have not posted any announcement since I have not gotten the list of winners.

    Sorry to keep everyone hanging. I promise this kind of delay will not happen in succeeding contests.

    Nino Carandang from WD had an update after Yuga last Aug 24

    “Nino Carandang replied on Aug 24th, 2010 at 9:06 pm (438)
    Hi Guys,
    I’ll announce the top three here on Friday. My apologies for the delay. It’s not easy to weed thru 400+ entries and finally decide on a winner.
    Thank you for your patience. More power to Yuga and his fans.
    Nino, WD ”

    Obviously you weren’t reading posts Mr. Erick Castillo. Anyways.. Tera Byte had his/her last straw of patience.. hehehe.. lol..

    There might be problems with WD picking the winner.. 400++ entries.. not so easy to filter through that…

  216. Matthew says:

    When can we expect for the results Seeking anyone from Western Digital to inform us what is happening and why the results keeps on being delayed. It is very unprofessional for a company to not stand with its promise I do hope the results will be out soon

    Thank you Yugatech and Western Digital

  217. Major Major says:

    Sir Yuga mukhang na bogus ka ng WD ah… while waiting we can play here para bigyan ng bagong pangalan ang WD….

    Walang Delicadeza
    Wait for the Delay
    Word of Discredit
    Will Deny

  218. Kenneth says:

    Cool lang tayo mga bro/sis, I think WD personnel in charge of screening did not expect that number of entries (400+). At least may konting pambawi na sila since they announced that there will be additional prizes in addition to the 1TB HD.

    Hopefully the next contest they have here in Yugatech mas mapaghandaan nila ang logistics at mga prizes.

    Good luck again to all the ladies and gentlemen who joined. :)

  219. Major Major says:

    Malamang next time if still sponsored by WD i will think twice if i should spend my time with their mock game.Base on what the’ve said and the result is totally different. I think they dont mind being criticized kc bali wala din sa kanila even the promises they’ve made.

  220. jay says:

    mag donate nalang kaya ako sa kanila ng prize na Iomega or lacie? baka wala sa budget nila, Kawawa naman si sir abe, pinahamak ng Worthless Disc maker. Sir Abe, next time make sure the prize/s are with you nalang before starting any contest and give them a deadline to decide who is the winner. Otherwise ako nalang

  221. tipler says:

    If you’re serious about criticizing WD, then post using the same handle you used for your entry or continue looking the fool.

  222. Major Major says:

    @tifler

    bakit Sir taga WD ka ba? isa ka din sa mga pang gulo…hahahaha…..

  223. Sanctuarian06 says:

    My Goodness.

  224. Cliff Rosario says:

    yep I agree Sanctuarian06, my goodness indeed. Calm down guys.. it’s not something to quarrel for.. mamaya eh.. mainis si Yuga and cancel the whole thing altogether. WD might have a pretty good reason not being able to post an update.

  225. Erin Vang says:

    Clearly I need more storage!

  226. Matthew says:

    it’s almost a week after the promise of Nino Carandang and 2 weeks behind the proposed deadline of Western Digital. I hope my criticism won’t affect my entry and will still be entitled to win

    To Western Digital:

    Please don’t keep the members hanging please update us what is happening for many of us are getting bored already. Honestly I visit this page thrice a day just to see if the winners are posted already. I do believe that if us the contestants have a deadline for submission the contest provider must also give a word when he/she will announce the winners

    Thank you Expecting a reply from Western Digital Philippines

  227. jay says:

    Mr. Nino Carandang is so insensitive and callous after making an announcement on August 24 that he will announce the winner on Friday the 27th of August (he didn’t specify a date but it’s obvious if you are not dumb). September 2 na po FYI! This is a very simple and definitely not a major major contest! This maybe a small promo on their part, but…… oh well….. another one of those delayed or failed promises that we usually hear from trapos. Clearly Yugatech followers/readers are serious people and they expect a lot from the sponsors.

  228. Jamby says:

    to think..this is just the First of a series of Four….

  229. Matthew says:

    2 weeks after the given deadline. Im sure many users are already losing hope. Yuga, What happened to Western Digital

  230. wally says:

    i hope this incident will not end up being featured on tv, like expose` and bayan mo i-patrol mo or emergency, i survived or wish ko lang haha, grabe iniwan sa ere mga followers, ka-simpleng contest lang neto

  231. Nino Carandang says:

    Here’s the contest winners:

    Second Prize goes to this entry:

    First Prize goes to:

    Nino Avenido

    My apologies for the delay, it’s really hard to weed through 426 entries. Try doing for yourself.

  232. Cliff Rosario says:

    Yey!.. Congrats to the winners.. how creative.. I like the on with the Help sign.. hahaha..

    @ Nino: some of us do understand. And now since we already have experience of having such load.. Abe and WD can post a more reasonable timeframe next time… there’s always a first so we just tested the waters with this first promo. :D

  233. fuchi says:

    congratulations to the winners…
    sana sa succeeding contest manalo ako…:D

  234. Mark Verano says:

    Thank you Yugatech and WD Philippines! It’s definitely worth the wait!:D

  235. Jamby says:

    @nino
    tnx fr the update…and congrats to the winners.

    but..is it really necessary to say “Try doing for yourself” i feel its a bit offensive and sarcastic.

    this contest is all about advertising isn’t it?…And clearly, a lot of people were saying and recalling WD for almost a month! So i believe that this is quite an achievement and success on your part. But pls do not tell us that just because there are 400+ entries, e mahihirapan kayong tignan lahat at mamili ng winners..

    you will have a hard time choosing if your going to check all the entries by waiting for the deadline,..since you’re the one choosing and (not raffling off) and it’ll depend on your “taste” why not choose an entry everyday if the response to the contest is indeed huge? or choose an entry after 50 posts? or after a 100 posts? then by the end of the contest date, you’ll just have as many as 10 finalists to choose from.

    WD is a big company for crying out loud…you should have a system on this. Are you the only one checking out all the entries? WD doesn’t have a team or a dep’t on advertising?

    If for example you advertise your product on tv and for the next few days, people start swarming your stores for that particular product..what will you do? Send them away and say “Try doing for yourself.”

    I’m sorry guys,..just would like to voice out my opinion.

    and oh,,btw, on your august 24 post,,,,…you said Top Three….no second runner up??? And can we know the price of the first runner up?

  236. Jamby says:

    i mean prize for the first runner up….:D sorry for the typo….

  237. eripples says:

    I sent some questions to Abe regarding the contest, it would have probably helped filter out the entries. read here http://www.yugatech.com/blog/contests/contest-show-me-your-pc/#comment-322983

    We have lessons to learn from this contest.

    1. Don’t let participants wait.
    2. Keep your word.
    3. Be specific with the contest rules.
    4. Always protect the welfare of the many
    5. Lastly, don’t allow yourself to be used by companies seeking publicity.

    Congratulations to the winners! To Abe, thank you for the opportunity. To WD Philippines, thanks for consoling participants by adding more prizes.

    The decision of the organizers of this contest I believe is irrevocable. However, I strongly believe that Mark V’s entry should have won the first slot.

    The second prize winner obviously fits the theme “why you need an extra terabyte hard drive”.

    My apologies to this entry’s owner, but I don’t get the idea of the first prize winner. I think he has a couple of tv sets there, then a bunch of laptops and desktops. And then printed the WD logo onto sheets of bondpaper. Perhaps WD liked it because they had their logo placed everywhere. Other than that, I dont think the owner of that photo clearly implies “why he needs an extra terabyte hard drive”. Obviously he has a lot of computers to work on. He could perhaps afford a terabyte hard drive. IDK.

    To Abe Olandres, please be specific with the contest rules next time. Coordinate with the sponsor. Don’t wait for the sponsor to email you updates.

    When you come up with contests, you have to anticipate the worst of the worst. Consider all circumstances.

    To Nino Carandang, I disagree with you saying “it’s really hard to weed through 426 entries. Try doing for yourself.” I humbly believe there should have been a better way to explain your side.

    It’s like you are saying “kayo kaya magpa-contest, tingnan natin kung kaya ninyo!”. It leaves a very bad impression to your existing and potential customers.

    This is actually a learning experience for all of us. As a matter of fact, this contest helped convince myself to really buy a 1 terabyte HDD. I just purchased one for myself this week. I had a good buy for only Php4.500.00. I didn’t buy WD because it was a bit pricier at Php6000.00. I am sure the price tag varies.

    Cheers to all! Make love and peace!

  238. Winner says:

    congratulations to the 2 winners!

    i totally agree with Jamby

    tinangkilik na nga galit pa, parang masama pa loob na nagpa contest.

    yeah who is the 3rd place winner?

    CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!

    Kayo naman, konting pasensya lang.. Keep your cool guys!

    But, I’ll make a wild guess. Nino Carandang uses Seagate, not Western Digital! Boooooo!!!

    Watch out when your regional office reads your comment dude.. :)

  240. Mark Verano says:

    @eripples & Cliff Rosario – Thanks for the appreciation guys… I am very grateful.

    Well, everybody who joined deserves a prize for the effort of capturing their most prized PC’s(and for their patience, that is.)

    I do believe Nino Avenido’s entry won fair and square. Maybe the judges may have picked his as the “Most Kick-ass” and mine as probably “Weirdest” or “Funniest”. Either way, everything goes as far as creativity is concerned. Congrats man!

    Let’s just all give credit to the presenter and his sponsor for giving us the opportunity and their generosity. Truly, it’s hard to get free stuff these days!

    And advance congrats to the 3rd prize winner!

    Thanks!

  241. Major Major says:

    I think it will take another 15 days for the 3rd place…… it’s really hard to weed through 426 entries. Try doing for yourself.

  242. eripples says:

    this will be the 1st in a series of 4 contests so ! join away! cant wait for the next.

  243. Nino Carandang says:

    As for the third prize: we decided to give it to:

    http://super-computers-world.blogspot.com/2010/08/super-computers_17.html

    The person doesn’t have a name though.

    To everyone, again my apologies. I should have set your expectations right as E-Ripples mentioned. To set the record straight, there’s just two of us in Manila. It’s a learning experience for us in the team also.

    With regards of the prizes, we aren’t backing out of our commitment with Yuga. We actually sent the prizes ahead of time to him, all four hard drives.

    Here’s the tier list of what the finalist won:

    1st prize – the Caviar Black 1TB
    2nd prize – WD Backpack plus some minor prizes inside
    3rd prize – WD Backpack

    Nino

  244. Jamby says:

    If prizes are already sent ahead of time…and you’re saying that there’s only two of you here in manila (to decide on this) then i suggest to let the judging be done by Yuga himself. I believe if Yuga was given the right to judge the contest, winners have been announced as early as Aug 18.

    Nonetheless, it’s not only the three contestants who’ve won, WD won also..in terms of publicity….good or bad.

  245. Participant says:

    My eyes was opened not to buy WD. Their aftersales could be the same as how they handle their promo. Announcing the winers with sarcasm really annoyed me.

    I agree Mark V’s entry should have won the first slot also.

    It is suppose to be a “WORKSTATION”! as the mechanic says. The 1st place winner is definitely not a workstation….

  246. Kenneth says:

    Congrats to the winners.

    Thank you again for WD for sponsoring the contest.

  247. Sanctuarian06 says:

    Bakit ba laging hindi nasusunod ang mga mechanics? Workstation ba? May workstation bang madaming PC? I dont think so. Whatever.

  248. gawsog says:

    Bakit ba laging hindi nasusunod ang mga mechanics? Workstation ba? May workstation bang madaming PC? I dont think so. Whatever.

    I think that madaming pc is supposed to be madaming monitors. And it is just so hard to imagine a workstation having that “alot” of monitors, and used in daily. And to Mark V’s, yes it fits the theme perfectly, and very good creativity, but its not a workstation either. I’m not being bitter here or something, just pointing out points.

    Anyways, congratsie :]

  249. gawsog says:

    Sakto pla ung kay Mark V, dapat siya nanalo first. my fault. ;]

  250. fuchi says:

    @Sanctuarian06, gawsog and Participant…
    I agree and 2nd the motion…hehe

    Let’s wish na sana manalo tayo on the next series of contests(for following the mechanics)…;P

    Well, let’s just congratulate the winners and do our best the next time…

  251. A lot of thanks for your entire work on this web page.

  252. Great article and I had thought of this before
