Long before Andre the Giant became the Eighth Wonder of the World, but long after the Great Wall of China became one of the original Wonders, the Industrial Revolution introduced its own wonders in the form of technological marvels and feats of engineering. BBC Video will soon chronicle seven of the most impressive of these in The Seven Wonders of the Industrial World, a DVD that blends CGI animation with dramatic re-creations. For the sake of being thorough, we figured we should work our own modern marvel, offering this latest contest “online” on the so-called “Internet.” We even hear you might try to win one of the five DVDs we’re giving away by submitting entries via a “computer.”
To win one of these five DVDs, simply complete and submit the entry form below through the deadline of 11:59pm PST on June 13, 2008. This daily entry contest is open worldwide to anyone 18 years old or older. Winners will be chosen at random and notified via e-mail, so make sure you leave us a valid email address. And remember: your odds of winning are greatly increased by returning each day to enter again, and by entering multiple times using multiple email addresses. Good luck!
