Prizes worth £1000 up for grabs in the #newsrw QR code challenge!

Delegates attending news:rewired – beyond the story on 16 December 2010 will be able to take part in a game around the venue as part of our final session on the potential of gaming for journalism and storytelling. Today we can announce the competition prizes, listed below. Three winners will each receive all three prizes listed below, with a total value of around £1,000. The longest odds of winning are going to be 1 in 66.

You can read the full details of how the game will run in this post – but essential it involves QR codes (similar to a bar code that can be scanned in via a mobile phone) that will direct you to different websites to create a phrase that must be tweeted to the @newsrewired account. It’s only open to delegates, so get your ticket today as you’ll need to be in it to win it.

But what can you win? We’ll be awarding three prizes to the first past the post of:
