Show How Games Have Made Your Life Better, Win a Trip to PAX


Looking forward to PAX’s East Coast debut next year in Boston? You could win a pair of passes just by making a video showing just how much videogames have enriched your life.

In the end not being able to make it to PAX this year might have turned out to be a good – or at least, safe – thing, but if you feel like you missed out on the ultimate nerd convention again and live on the East Coast, fret not, because PAX is making its Atlantic debut next year in America’s capital of baked beans and diehard baseball fans: Boston, Massachusetts.

Registration for the March event has already begun, but you can get pair of passes on the house courtesy of the Entertainment Consumers Association, the advocacy group dedicated to serving the needs of those who enjoy “interactive entertainment.” All you have to do is win their “Face of a Gamer” contest, and all you need to do to do that is make a YouTube video.

“Shoot a short video to show the positives of video games: how they have brought your friends and family together, the positive things video games have done in your life, how they’ve made you healthier, or the good they’ve done in your community,” the ECA wrote. “Most of all, have fun and be creative.”

Winners will be chosen by the amount of users’ votes they gather between September 14 and 24th. Which reminds me – you’ll need to act fast if you want to get in on the contest, because the deadline is midnight September 11, which is this Friday.
