We'll start with how to win, as this is likely to be the most important to you. Everyone who enters a picture (read here for how to enter) will have their name added to the hat, more commonly known as the “Etisal-Hat”. Your name will go into the “Etisal-Hat” once for every entry you submit, so if you want more chances of winning, enter lots of different pictures. Don't forget to tag entries with #etisalatfc and tweet them to @EtisalatUAE or we won't see them.
There are 4 draw dates, June 24, July 1, July 8 and July 11, on each of these dates one handset will be given away. On June 24 you are playing for a BlackBerry Javelin, July 1 is for an iPhone 3GS, July 8 is for the second BlackBerry Javelin and finally on July 11 for the second iPhone 3GS.
There's still plenty of time to get your entries in for the first draw on Thursday, so get supporting, get tweeting, and get those entries in. We look forward to seeing what you come up with.`
