STC Cancels iPhone 4 Contest

In a very strange move Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has deleted the iPhone 4 ad contest announcement from their Facebook page. This is not the first time STC backs out of something as they removed their iPhone app after less than one day.

Here is the original message posted on STC’s facebook page: “What could you do, if we told you that STC is going to offer iPhone 4 very soon, and that we are going to give away 1 iPhone 4 for the best ad design and offer that comes along?

You are the planner, come up with the best plan for the iPhone, free minutes, free SMSs, free browsing, or anything else that you see will suit peoples’ needs, of course it has to be logical 😉

We are going to wait your designs and offers, and there is a huge chance that the winner design could be used as the official STC ad for the iPhone 4 when it hits the market.

The competition will last until Wednesday the 6th of October 3:00 PM, and the winner will be announced on Saturday the 9th of October noon time. 🙂

There is no problem whatsoever if you decided to enter the competition with more than one design.

All designs should be uploaded to the page’s wall.

Quick tip: don’t forget to tag your friends to the photo once you upload it, this might increase the chance of your design winning you an iPhone 4 😉

Good luck 😉“.

So I guess the contest is over unless STC had an issue with out to accept submissions for the contest so they decided to delay/cancel it.

STC could also posted this on their page: “http://facebook.com/STCadmin
We are facing some technical problems on our page, we will solve them and get back to you very soon. In case you have any question or a request, please contact us through the above-mentioned URL. 🙂
“. Lots of smilies …

  1. They are probably in a hurry for the launch and have no more time to spend for that contest.:))

  2. I agree they are in a hurry. Only users that did not get the Iphone 4 from Mobily were the loyal long term STC customers.
    STC has to pick up pace when Mobily launched on 25th september instead of 2nd October week. I believe STC can sit and watch.

  3. The winner is already selected as per their facebook & tweeter accounts..

    The winner of the Designing contest has been selected, congratulations Mohammed Al Naim 🙂
    so, whats next can we expect an iphone launch from STC in the coming days?

  4. Stc is very biased in this contest . there were so many good ads but they choose this one i don’t know why and i think it was pre selected from stc bcz after uploading of that ad stc block their site and also announce the result before the date they mentioned in their msg …….. 

  5. Thank you so much for this! I have not been this moved by a blog post for a long time! You have got it, whatever that means in blogging. Anyway, You’re certainly someone that has something to say that people need to hear. Keep up the wonderful job. Keep on inspiring the people!
