Microsoft has announced a new contest for Skype users
If you’re one of the many Skype users out there, you now have the chance to win a two-week trip to Europe if you sign in to the VoIP application in the near future.Basically, Microsoft wants Skype users to simply launch the app on a Windows 8.1 device and fill a simple registration form, but there still are a few catches if you’d like to participate.
First, the contest is only open to residents living in the United States and Canada and ends on March 23, so you really need to hurry up a little bit to submit your registration.
The trip across Europe allows you to visit several large cities, including Istanbul, Athens, Milan, and Barcelona. All expenses are covered, Microsoft said, and you even get a Surface Pro 2 and a Nokia Lumia 1020 to blog about your adventure and post photos on Twitter.
If you’d like to register for the contest, go over to the Skype Sweepstakes page and fill in the form on the site. Keep in mind however that the promo is only available if you sign in on Skype from a Windows 8.1 device using the Metro apps, and you must be at least 18 years old and living either in Canada or the United States.
