We wound up with a spare copy of the Criterion Collection’s new Blu-ray edition of Guillermo del Toro’s dark fairy tale ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’. Because we’re in a generous mood, we thought we’d pass along that good fortune to one of our readers. Enter our contest for your chance to win.
The inventive fantasy picture was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Foreign Language Film. Its stunning visuals eventually won for Best Cinematography, Art Direction, and Makeup.
Although ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ was previously released on Blu-ray back in 2007, that older disc had a problematic video transfer. The new Criterion Collection edition fixes that and adds a bunch of fascinating new bonus features.
To win a copy of the disc, all you have to do is participate in our photo caption contest by giving us a funny or clever caption for the following image. Click to enlarge:
For example: “Oh, my eyes! The DNR on that old Blu-ray is killing me!”
We have one copy of the Blu-ray to give away. The winner will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever responses we enjoy the most. Entries are limited to 10 per person. That should give you plenty of opportunity to craft a good submission, but will also help us to avoid any potential appearance of awarding prizes based on volume rather than quality. (Please heed this limit. You will be taken out of consideration if you submit more than 10 entries.) All entries must be submitted in the Comments section of this blog post. Please do not attempt to email them to me.
This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. People who have won any of our previous contests within the past one year are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.
The deadline for entry is end of day on Friday, October 28th. The winner will be announced the following week. Good luck!
