LOST Contest! Be Creative, Win Seasons 1-5 on DVD (Updated w/autographs!)

Thanks to a very generous fellow fan (who wishes to remain anonymous), I have seasons 1-5 of Lost to give away on DVD!  And one lucky person will win ALL FIVE sets. 

UPDATE: I was able to get the DVDs autographed by the following cast and crew!
  • Sam Anderson (Bernard)
  • Sterling Beaumon (young Ben)
  • Francois Chau (Dr. Pierre Chang)
  • Andrea Gabriel (Nadia)
  • Javier Grillo-Marxuach: producer/writer (House of the Rising Sun, All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues, Hearts and Minds, ...In Translation, Born to Run, Orientation, Collision)
  • Neil Hopkins (Liam Pace)
  • Eric Lange (Radzinsky)
  • Ade McCormack (Yemi)
  • Gregg Nations: continuity guru, producer and writer (Egg Town, Some Like it Hoth, Ab Aeterno)
  • Daniel Roebuck (Dr. Arzt)
  • Jordan Rosenberg: writer (Par Avion)
  • Sean Whalen (Frogurt)
I have only received a few entries thus far, and have extended the contest through Saturday night before the finale. The prize has been significantly kicked up a notch, so I hope that motivates you to enter!

I've hosted contests before, but given what is up for grabs and the pending series finale - this one had to be different. In exchange for the opportunity to win the five autographed DVD sets, I am seeking a representation of what Lost has meant to you over the years. It can be a photograph, poem, song, drawing, sketch, painting, sculpture, video, graphic, digital rendering, etc. Be creative, and use whatever medium/format speaks to you the most. It does not have to be time-consuming and elaborate.

If you would like to enter and be eligible to win all 5 autographed Lost DVD sets, here are the rules:
  • Your entry must be original and new, created just for this contest; nothing pre-existing. Between Google and Facebook, I will do my homework and double check. :)
  • Video and audio entries must be 3 minutes or less.
  • Only one entry per person please.
  • The contest is open to those in the U.S. and Canada only (DVDs are Region 1).
  • Everyone who enters will receive something in return, either a Lost Fan pin or S6 premiere bag.
  • All entries must be emailed to me (whether actual files or links to your contribution).
If you could please help spread the word about this contest by posting a link on your Facebook wall and via Twitter, I would really appreciate it. 

For questions and entries, please email me (jo [at] jopinionated [dot] com).

The deadline for entries is now Saturday, May 22 at 11:59pm. Ready, go!

I love this contest idea! I draw and paint in my spare time. I just got an iPad and am dyeing to try out one of the drawing apps on it. This might be just the thing to motivate me. If I can find the time, I'll try do make something.
