Here is a contest on IndiBlogger after a gap of almost two months! Presented by Dove, the title is 'Beautiful Ends to your Beautiful Braids!'

Tell us your story about the good old days, when you loved to make beautiful braids with your hair, and how your braids have beautiful ends once again.

The prizes are also great- as usual there is a laptop and for a change, this time they have introduced cameras as one of the prizes! Smile

I had always wondered why cameras are not one of the prizes and this time, they are! Though I don't know what SLR means ( I'm sure that it doesn't mean self loading rifle! ) , I still want that one!  Infact, I wouldn't mind if I am offered the UltraBook Tongue out While the number of vouchers is large, I doubt their usefulness! It would have been better if they were Flipkart vouchers.

And coming to the contest, clueless on what to write...

SLR means  Single Lens Reflex as opposed to Twin Lens Reflex cameras (i.e cameras with two lenses) from the days of yore. In a TLR one of the lenses is the photographic objective or "taking lens" (the lens that takes the picture), while the other is used for the viewfinder system, which is usually viewed from above at waist level.

Me clueless on how to go about cuz need some guidelines, word limit, anythn shud know ?

 

No word limit I think. Even one line like "just send the first prize to me or......," post can be put up. Though you never know which line will strike the judges.

Wow the prizes are so amazing. I have no idea what to write though. But MUST at least submit an entry. *eyes that laptop and DSLSR*But yeah, they should have more contests where guys feel like submitting stuff too.

yes i agree..i guess they cud have kept a smiliar topic for men to write...like something related to hair care. It would have been very intresting to read a MAN's POV. You do find many men with long hair these days, its obvious that they too need to maintain their locks well!!

but previous records show all such type contests were aced by gals. though attempted by guys, (couldn't get in their shoes may be." 

I may try one more time to think like a gal, seeing the mesmerizing prizes. Mind has already revolted though, and given last warning,

Just prepare your eyes my friend, for it's evolving to be an unversal eye catcher.., or whatever the term. I should't boast but this is the only thing I can do well.

I just recd my  Dove sample , was pleasantly surprised.. unsure though about rules for this competition ? Could not find any link to ' Guidelines' . There has to be a word limit ?? Please say ?

I had seen one post for hair contest, A contestant had just posted his pic of nicely combed hair and no words at all. So i feel minimum no words and maximum endless.

I haven't received my sample either so far!!!!! :(

When men can write without braids about braids, I suppose one can be imaginative .

The Dove sample is not really free. Blue Dart brought a package today (to Pune) along with some kind of invoice saying I would have to shell out Rs.30 approx for octroi and some other 'admin' or some such charge. I returned the package as it was. Has anybody else had this experience? Thanks.

Priyanka Roy Banerjee

Quite surprized to know that, Alaka. Me too received it in Pune, for free of course via Blue Dart.

Courier guy must be an unscrupulous. When my Dell system was delivered, courier guy demanded some money as service tax. I opted for the cheque payment and that guy delivered the system and never turned up again.

Phir why this happened to me only? :(

Ok, it's a small disappointment, but more importantly wanted to keep indibloggers in general updated about this.

@Alaka - we're sorry about that! We'll report it to Dove and Bluedart, and have another one sent across.
