    Good morning Milepointers!

    We’ve got some exciting news regarding the quickly approaching (and sold out) 2012 oneworld® MegaDo.

    Thanks to our friends at Milepoint, we’ve secured two coach class tickets on the domestic charter, and we’d like to give them to you.

    There’s just one catch. You have to show us how badly you want them!

    We’re looking for a creative, talented and passionate person to represent AAdvantage® on the MegaDo as our Official Video Blogger.

    What does this mean?

    It means you and a friend (or camera person, we won’t discriminate) will get to attend the oneworld MegaDo. It means you’ll receive exclusive access and interview opportunities with AA, Boeing, Hyatt and Milepoint executives. It means you’ll be creating a series of short videos documenting your experiences, which will be shared with AAdvantage social media communities.

    What will you win?

    We’ve assembled a valuable bounty of prizes for the Grand Prize winner which includes two coach class passes for the domestic MegaDo event, one night’s stay with Hyatt at each stop, a Flip HD video camera and air transportation to DFW and back home from LAX. Not to mention exclusive interviews with executives along the way.

    Plus, the five videos which receive the most public votes will receive 25,000 AAdvantage miles each.

    Finally - if you happen to have any friends who aren’t AAdvantage members (we know all of you are, right?) they can sign up for an account using the promotion code OWMGD and earn 500 bonus miles.

    How do you enter?

    You’ll need to shoot and edit a 30-60 second video detailing:
    Why should we pick YOU to be our official video blogger?
    Which part of the trip would you be most excited about?
    A little about yourself - what makes you tick? What are your hobbies? Be creative!

    Fill out our entry form, and upload your video to our Facebook tab. Yes, you will need to like our page first. And yes, we understand not all of you use Facebook. Consider it step one in showing us how much you want these tickets.

    Videos will be judged and selected based on enthusiasm and passion for participating brands and the MegaDo event as well as the ability to tell stories through video in an engaging, professional and creative manner.

    We’re looking forward to seeing your videos! Good luck!

    MLW20 - You're in luck! We do have consolation prizes. If your video finishes in the top five for public voting, you'll win 25,000 AAdvantage miles. Pretty cool, huh?

    I thought they no longer made the Flip, or maybe that was the Elf ...

    They don't but it is still widely popular, used and available. Milepoint offered them to five bloggers on the last MegaDO to use.

    My wife read my Tweet about the contest and wants to start filming right away so she can win and go along. I on the other hand read the fine print and she's not eligible to win. Going to be tough to break it to her ... So if any of you potential winners need a winglady to fly along, i know someone who is interested. And she doesn't mind sitting in the middle seat!

    Great contest AA.

    That is pretty sweet but I don't think I have the time to make a video for a contest that I can not win the grand prize for! lol Is there any other way to enter that is less time consuming (due to my circumstances) than a video?

    If I am already on the MegaDo - can I video (with my own FlipCamera) for competition for the 25K miles?

    P.S. Randy - still waiting for you to post by 25 videos from SMD3.

    Apparently there's no love and no AAloha for us.

    David - Ironic, then, that Randy's signature line reads:

    "Helping David by trying to find just one more seat ..."

    Some people love social media and love making video blogs. Definitely not me, but to each his/her own.

    To anyone who is thinking of entering, make sure you read the releases in the T&C regarding AA's rights with respect to the footage you produce.

    Edit to add: I just tried to watch the first entry that Randy posted to the blog. I got a message "Flash Player upgrade required." Unfortunately I'm already running the newest version of flash that will work on my computer. ::shrug::

    I uploaded my entry last night. Perhaps I'll put together something more professional later but I'd settle for 25K AA miles. Only 3 entries to date, so Top 5 still looks attainable!

    Does anyone else see the 7 or so entries that have 0 votes and won't play the video? Or is it just me on a Mac? I really want to see all the videos!

    I don't think it is you and your mac. Those others were listed on Day One so i assume they registered but forgot or have yet uploaded or linked to their videos. They are empty submissions so far.

    If you want to see the entries, your best option is to click on the "view entries" button. From there you'll be taken to a gallery of all the uploaded videos. Click on each video to watch. Enjoy!
