GameStop holding 'Ultimate Guitar Hero' contest

GameStop is holding an "Ultimate Guitar Hero Contest," but the good news is it doesn't appear to require any actual Guitar Hero skills. All it requires is submitting a photo prior to October 10 in one of three categories with a brief description (300 words of less) of why those in the photo should win. The three categories are: "Families who Rock!;" "Moms with Star Power!;" and "Guitar Gods and Goddesses."

The grand prize winners in each of the categories receive fabulous prizes (listed after the break). Four first prize winners will receive a copy of Guitar Hero World Tour Band Kit and a $50 GameStop gift card. If you don't want to go through the effort of the contest, there's always the option of the general sweepstakes. We'd love to get our hands on the Mom photo submissions, as those would have the potential for the best chuckles.

Grand prize winners:

  • Families Who Rock! – Six free day passes to SixFlags Theme Parks and a $500 gas card and a copy of Guitar Hero: World Tour Band Kit
  • Moms with Star Power! – A $1,000 gift card for the "star" treatment at Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas and a copy of Guitar Hero: World Tour Band Kit
  • Guitar gods and goddesses! – $200 annual subscription for guitar lessons from, a $800 gift card to and a copy of Guitar Hero®: World Tour Band Kit
