On November 8, Bilbao will become the European capital of videogames thanks to the Fun & Serious Game Festival and its spectacular international award gala, in which the best European video games of the year will get awards. This will turn Bilbao into the capital of luxury and glamour too, courtesy of Microsoft Ibérica and the video game Forza Motorsport 4 for Xbox 360.
As if in Monte Carlo, several luxury cars will roll along the streets of Bilbao, showcasing their attractive and elegant features before the eyes of Bilbaínos. Afterwards, they will take celebrities and hosts to the award gala venue: the Campos Elíseos Theatre in town.
Drive a Ferrari
The Fun & Serious Game Festival, Microsoft Ibérica, and Forza Motorsport 4 want to reward the lovers of speed, adrenaline, and exciting adventures with something that goes beyond just being dazzled by these amazing cars.
This is why they are drawing lots for two different prizes. First of all, a brand-new Xbox 360 with Forza Motorsport 4 in it. To enter the competition, you just need to follow the Fun & Serious Game Festival on social media and tell us what car on the Forza Motorsport 4 you would drive to attend the gala and why. Messages must be sent under the hashtag #forza4funandserious on Twitter or below the corresponding note on Facebook. The list of cars is available on the video game website (http://forzamotorsport.net/es-es/Cars/ManufacturerList.aspx). Five messages will be chosen by lots and the prize will go to the most creative, funniest, or smartest answer among them.
And there’s more. You can drive one of these Ferraris at the speedway in Catalonia. How? Just be on the alert and take a snapshot of one of the cars in Bilbao on November 8 –the day of the Fun & Serious Game award gala. Then upload it through our social media channels, indicating where you’ve taken the picture.
To take part in either of the competitions (or in both), you have to be a follower or fan of the Fun & Serious Game Festival on Twitter (@funandserious) or Facebook.
