You Could Win an iPad mini in Our Survivor Real Proof Challenge

“Drop it from a 150-foot bridge.” “Roll over it with a two-ton dump truck.”  “Run it through the carwash.”

We’ve dreamed up some pretty crazy testing to prove our Survivor cases really are Ready for Anything.™ (Check out YouTube to see some of what we’ve done in the past.) Now it’s your turn. Can our best case survive the worst things you can put a phone through?

We want to hear your craziest, most extreme testing ideas for us to try on our Survivor cases and accessories. And if we pick yours, you could win one of three iPad minis and a Survivor prize package.

Here’s how the Survivor Real Proof Challenge works:

  1. 1) Reply to this post, or on any of our social channels with your idea.  Make sure you include the hashtag #griffinsurvivor.
  2. 2) Reply before 11:59 pm CDT on Monday, May 30.
  3. 3) We’ll collect all of your responses for evaluation by a panel of Griffin product development, QA, and marketing people on the basis of originality and feasibility.  
  4. 4) We’ll choose three ideas.  If yours is one of them, you’ll win an iPad mini and a Griffin prize pack.
  5. 5) In the event that there are multiple ideas that we judge to be similar, we will perform a random drawing from all the similar ideas to determine the winner.
  6. 6) We’ll stage and shoot the tests, then share the winning ideas.

There are official rules, of course. Please read and understand them before entering.

It’s easy to enter. Just Reply or comment below or on your favorite social channel:
