AP.net Contest Announcement: Share Your Yellowcard...

Posted by: Drew Beringer (08/29/13)
You may not have noticed this lately, but we're really into Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue Acoustic. Today we're announcing the final part of our big promotion and you better believe we saved the best for last. The band will be heading out on its Ocean Avenue Acoustic tour next week (dates and tickets here) and you may have recognized the "#YCmoment" takeover. We want you to share with us and the band your best #YCmoment at one of the band's upcoming shows. To do so, take your best Instagram or Vine of the band performing your favorite song or even try to catch Sean mid-backflip.

Once you've taken your best #YCmoment at the show, make sure you upload it and use that hashtag, as the AP.net staff will be looking through all the photos and videos attached to #YCmoment and picking our 5-10 favorite moments. We'll be highlighting our favorite moments weekly and that's how you'll be enter into the grand prize drawing. After the tour concludes, we'll take all our favorite moments and the band will chose its favorite. We have some really awesome prizes lined up, with the grand prize being the backdrop used during the tour (autographed by the band, of course). Full details can be found in the replies and if you have any questions, make sure to leave them in the replies. This is gonna be a lot of fun and a great way to Yellowcard fans to interact with each other during the tour.

AP.net & Hopeless Present: Share Your #YCmomentTo enter:
- take a picture or video of a moment at one of the upcoming Yellowcard Acoustic tour dates (dates and tickets here)
- share said moment on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Vine using the hashtag #YCmoment
- every week (most likely on Friday) during the tour run, the AP.net staff will pick and highlight its 5-10 favorite moments from that week of shows to be entered into the contest drawing at the end of the tour cycle
- we will also be retweeting and face booking our favorites from the hash tag #ycmoment
- at the end of the tour, we will compile all the weekly winners into one grand pool and have the band pick their favorite one for the back drop. 3 runners up receive every YC album on vinyl + 2 Yellowcard shirts (the grand prize winner will receive this as well along with the backdrop)

Good luck to everyone!


mock up for the backdrop:

Well this certainly going to be doing anything to quell the plague of people holding up their cell phones (and fucking iPads) during shows...

i'd love to do this if i can make it to a show.
i have to say besides getting to one of these shows, yellowcard was the first band i saw in concert so that is a great moment in my history.
edit: i have class the nights they are playing in nyc and i can't miss them. this sucks (well grad school does right now because of this).

This is a great idea from an awesome band. Funny that when I saw them they said "Put your phones away and be in the moment with us" still, this will be awesome. Hope you guys get some good pics.
