If you’re reading this article on your smartphone right now, you know the struggle is real. And by struggle we mean the attachment we have to our Apple iPhones, Google Pixels, Samsung Galaxies and whatever else.

Everyone knows that it feels refreshing to put the phone away for a bit and just relax, but not everyone can do it. Can you?

Do you think you could be away from your smartphone for a full day? How about a week? Or even a month? Is it a reality for you to do a full year without it? And what if there were incentives involved? Say $100,000 for giving up your handy-dandy smartphone for 365 days?

And if you’re a brave soul willing to go through the many levels of agony due to smartphone loss, then VitaminWater has a mission for you. If you’re wondering what colorful vitamin water has to do with technology, well… we don’t know. But the company has announced a new contest, or challenge should we say, where one lucky duck can win the full 100 grand for the full experience of being smartphone-less for a year, according to the NY Post.

To enter the contest you need to post a photo either to your Twitter or Instagram account, tag VitaminWater and explain to them why you’re in need of a year-long hiatus from your smartphone. Also, you need to let them know what you plan on doing to survive or pass the time during the year-long phone-less journey. Don’t forget to add the hashtags #nophoneforayear and #contest to your social media post.

According to the NY Post here are the guidelines to win $100,000:

“You may not use any smartphone for 365 days. If texting is a pleasant experience or you can get on the internet, it’s probably a smartphone.

This means you may not physically operate, caress, hug or otherwise be physically affectionate with anyone’s smartphone

If you’re lying in bed and miss your phone, do not attempt to sneak a midnight scroll… just close your eyes and dream about VitaminWater…”

The submission deadline is on January 8, 2019, so make sure to get your social media post up very soon. Notably, you can submit up to four entries.

“The winning entries will be based on the following criteria:

Creativity and Originality of Submission (30%);
– Presents idea in a fun and unique way Cultural or Brand Relevance of Submission (30%);
– Fits the brand tonality and persona Humor of Submission (30%);
– Relates to breaking the monotony for original and outside the lines reasons Quality of Submission (10%)
– Inclusion of proper grammar and spelling
– Inclusion of high-quality photos and/or videos (if photos/videos are included)”

You’re probably wondering how VitaminWater will be certain that the chosen contestants do as was promised. There aren’t many details, but the company does reveal that the verification process will include a lie detector test at some point.
