Win a Windows Phone 7 device in our photo caption competition, live on the blog for one day only!


So here it is, our third and final Windows Phone 7 caption competition. You have until 10pm tonight (Friday 5th) to get funny and send us your caption for this photo of marketing gal, Georgina Lewis, rightfully contained in a box (yes George – note the italics). Make of it what you will.

Post your comment to the blog along with your Twitter ID or email address, and if you’re the funniest of the funny, you’ll win a much coveted Windows Phone 7 device. As usual, no comedy without conditions – have a read below. We’ll contact the winner on Tuesday.

Good luck!
