If your video is selected as the grand prize winner, you could be $7000 richer. That’s not the only prize that Samsung is giving away either. Here’s how it breaks down:

And if you don’t feel like making a video, you can even win money just buy sharing these videos. If you share a video with three people and they participate in the contest, you’re eligible to win $500. If you’re interested in making a video or just sharing, The rest of the rules and regulations about the contest you can find here.
We have a feeling that a majority of videos on the website are currently from New Yorkers as the only place that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available is at the Union Square Best Buy in New York. The rest of the United States won’t see it come out until June 17th. Guess you could always just use the older Galaxy Tab as a substitute.
Good luck and let us know if you win some cash.
