Lava Mobile, Indain handsets maker and sponsor of IIFA 2014 awards of Bollywood, has announced a contest on its website and Facebook page. This contest is titled, ‘Hunt for the SMARTIST’ and will start from March 15th 2014 and continue till March 25th 2014.
As per Lava, there are three contests which will be running simultaneously on the Facebook page and website of LAVA Mobiles. People are invited to participate in any of the 3 contests. Each contest will have one winner who gets a chance to fly to Florida to be a part of the IIFA awards this year. It’s a three layered contest wherein people can participate in a quiz, share their green carpet look or share a short video of themselves showing ‘what would they say to their dream celebrity in case they go on a date with him/ her’. The entries of the green carpet look and video contest will be partly decided through a polling process online that starts as soon as people submit their entries. On the other hand, the winner of the quiz will be decided by a lucky draw. Apart from all 3 winners being flown to Florida, the winner of the green carpet look will get a chance to meet and greet a celebrity while the winner of the video contest will get to go on a lifetime opportunity of a date with a celebrity during IIFA.
