How to Enter 2010 ELAN Video Game Awards Contest to Win Tickets

For Immediate Release

SAN DIEGO, CA&VANCOUVER, BC April 5, 2010 - The ELAN Awards' mandate is to have every video game talent in the world know about them this year and they have launched a contest which will award the top four people who help them achieve their goal.

The best networker in the contest will win a first prize package which includes flights for two from anywhere in the world, three days in sunny San Diego with accommodations at the gorgeous Manchester Grand Hyatt, and Gold Tickets to the 2010 ELAN Awards together with all surrounding parties which include a Pool Party, a Street Party, a Champagne Gala Reception, a 4-course 5-star Awards Dinner, the Awards Ceremony itself and an After-Party all taking place during the 3 days leading up to Comic-con.

And there are more chances to win big: Second Prize is two tickets to the Awards Night which includes the Champagne Reception, the Awards Dinner and Ceremony and the After-Party; Third Prize is two tickets to the surrounding parties which includes the Pool Party, the Street Party and the After-Party; Fourth Prize is two tickets to the Street Party, "Nomination Celebration-in-the-Streets".

Sound good? Then tell all of your friends and get the chance to win it! The only prerequisite for this contest is that only those working in or associated professionally with (Advertising, PR, Suppliers&Service Providers, Digital Art Schools, etc.) the video game industry may enter.

Here's how to enter:

1. If you are not already receiving ELAN Award News then you need to sign yourself up first; if you are, skip to the 2nd step. To sign up click here or go to and click on "Win Tickets to the 2010 ELANS". Enter the very minimal information requested there and make sure that you use your work email (to authenticate you as a video game professional or associate) and, very importantly, enter your name where it asks for the Contestant's First&Last Name;

2. Spread the word: Contact everyone you know who qualifies and get them to do exactly what you did in Step 1 and make certain they enter YOUR name in the Contestant's First&Last Name field.

You're done. That's all there is to it. Any of your friends who you had sign up and enter your name can then go on to do the same for themselves, only tell their contacts to enter their (your friend's) name in the contestant's field, and so on and so on until we've made everyone in the industry aware of these important awards and have established four lucky winners! The person whose name appears on the most sign-ups wins, as does the second, third and fourth.

The ELAN Awards newsletter list is totally confidential. "No one's trying to sell anyone anything," says Holly Carinci , Founder and CEO, continuing with a smile, "We don't have even one single advertiser."

Go to to find out more about the event itself taking place in San Diego, California USA from Saturday, July 17th thru Monday, July 19th. The competition closes on Friday, April 30th and the winners will be announced at the Nominee Press Conference on or around June 17th.
