CONTEST! CNN Offers Viewers Convention Invites

CNN is offering viewers a unique shot to win a trip to Tampa and Charlotte to experience “the excitement” around the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

From now through Sunday, August 5th, interested parties can visit CNN iReport to upload a video or photograph telling CNN why they should be selected to help cover the events of the RNC and DNC alongside CNN.

Selected participants will receive an all-expense paid trip to Tampa or Charlotte. Additionally, winners will receive VIP access to the CNN Grill and CNN’s live broadcasts, special meet and greet with CNN talent and more. Will John King teach winners how to use the magic wall or how to write nasty emails to media reporters? Will Wolf Blitzer disclose secrets about his facial hair? One can only hope.

Six people will be selected. Winners will be announced the week of August 12.
