American DJ, American Audio and Arriba Bags are holding a contest with a prize that isn’t quite out of this world, but is sure out of this continent! The companies are offering an all-expense paid trip for two to the BPM 2011 DJ Show in Birmingham, England from October 1-3, 2011. (The total trip length is from September 28 through October 4, 2011.)
Entering to win this dream prize in the Come Play In The UK contest is pretty simple – and a whole lot of fun. Contestants just have to submit a video explaining which European musician (living or historical) they would like to meet and which American DJ lighting product they’d like to give their musical hero.
These videos must be submitted as a “video response” to Brian S. Redd’s YouTube channel video: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPXpXUqLlH0) Videos must also be submitted by the contest deadline, which is June 30, 2011 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.
American DJ welcomes creativity in Come Play In The UK contest submissions. Contestants can select a musical hero from any musical genre, from techno to Tchaikovsky; they can communicate with this artist through the Internet or a séance –or do anything else that strikes their imaginations.
The company only stipulates that the videos be 100% original, contain nothing lewd or offensive, or do anything that endangers people or animals.
The contest is open to all legal US residents over the age of 18. Official contest rules can be found on the company’s website, http://www.americandj.com/ProductDetails.aspx?Category=&ItemNumber=2050
First prize in the contest is an all-expense paid trip for the winner and a companion to the BPM 2011 DJ Show in Birmingham, England.

The winner is responsible for ground transportation to and from his or her home to the local airport. The winner is also responsible for all federal, state and local taxes that may be associated with this trip.

“We’re very excited about the Come Play In The UK contest,” said Brian Dowdle, marketing manager of American DJ, American Audio and Arriba Bags. “In February, our European office flew a DJ from over there to Las Vegas to attend the Mobile Beat Show. Now, we’re returning the favor by sending someone from here to the BPM DJ Show in England. This is our way of saying thanks to the international DJ community, and promoting the global exchange of DJ-ing around the world.”
