Announcement: aloft Halloween Costume Contest

As residents of Second Life begin to prepare for next week's Halloween festivities, aloft hotels is having its first virtual Halloween costume contest inside of Second Life.

Here's how it works.

To enter the Halloween costume contest, from now until 11:30pm EST on October 31st, all you need to do is to take a photo of your Second Life avatar in your Halloween costume on the aloft island sim, either inside or outside the hotel. To enter, simply email a jpeg version of the photo to us at frontdesk@virtualaloft.com. In your email, include your name, avatar name, email address, and mailing address to be eligible. To be eligible, your photo must be received by 11:00 pm EST on October 31st, 2006.

Then at midnight on November 1st, our panel of judges will select five Grand Prize winners and 10 first prize winners from all eligible images received. Winning entries will be selected based equally on the following criteria: creativity, originality, and effort.

There's a limit of one winning image per participant and in the event of a tie, the entrant with the highest score in the creativity category will be considered the winner.

Winners will be notified via email within seven seven days of the selection. If the potential winner does not respond within seven seven days after the first attempt to contact him/her, or if notification is returned as undeliverable, we will then select an alternate potential winner in his/her place from all entries received.

All grand prize winners will receive gift sets from Bliss Spas and first prize winners will receive aloft t-shirts.

If you have any questions, drop us a note at frontdesk@virtualaloft.com
