Successful Application Notification
Applicants accepted to participate in the “smash campaign” will be notified by email on May 3rd. Then, and only then, will applicants be eligible to receive a OnePlus purchase code after sending in a video. Applicants who decide to smash their phone and submit a video without explicit acknowledgement of acceptance into the campaign will not receive a purchase code for the OnePlus One. OnePlus is not liable for any damage done to phones of applicants who do not receive explicit acknowledgement of acceptance into the campaign. OnePlus is not liable for any damage or injury incurred to the smasher, surrounding persons or any equipment used during the shooting of each smash video.
If accepted, the applicant will have four days to submit a video to the OnePlus team. If their video is not submitted in the required timeframe, their application will expire and a replacement applicant will be chosen to take their place.
Video Submission Guidelines
All submitted videos must be shot in one frame with no cutting or editing. The applicant must show that their phone does turn on and use the phone that was chosen by the applicant in their initial application. The applicant will have to explain us why he/she applied to the Smash the Past contest and wanted to smash his/her current flagship phone for the OnePlus One. If instead of donating to charity, the applicant decides to smash his/her flagship, the phone must suffer significant and visible damage to qualify for the OnePlus One purchase code. The applicant must show evidence of the damage in the video following the smash.
OnePlus reserves the right to disqualify any video submission for any reason, in its sole and absolute discretion. OnePlus is not liable for any damage done to phones that are damaged in disqualified videos.
By entering in this contest, applicants agree to OnePlus' use of their first name, country of residence, submitted video and/or application materials for both online and offline direct marketing purposes.
