Replace My Gift Contest Winners

Underwear for your hands. A stuffed pony instead of a real horse. An action figurine of a race car driver instead of a track day. These were some of the gifts that you submitted in HTC’s Replace My Gift contest that concluded last week.

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and asked us to replace your gift with a new HTC OneWe received over 1,000 submissions but only 12 could be grand prize winners. And while your gift-givers may not be thrilled for sharing your “bad” gift with us, our judges loved it.

The winning submissions were chosen by a panel of judges based on a criterion of originality, creativity of the entry, ability to portray humor, and overall “badness” of the gift. (See full contest rules, here.)
