CNN wants to fly you to a convention city!


There's less than one week left to win a trip to the convention city of your choice on CNN's dime. Will you be one of the lucky six golden ticket winners?


You'll be right in the middle of the political action at the CNN Grill, where lots of delegates, pundits and CNN anchors will be milling about. There will also be opportunities to meet some top CNN staffers.


iReporters will have exciting activities planned, including photowalks, special dinners, and maybe a surprise or two. To enter, send us an original video or photo of yourself telling us why CNN should send you to Tampa or Charlotte during the political national conventions.


Make sure you start off your submission by saying this phrase:
My name is _____________ and I want CNN to fly me to Tampa!
My name is _____________ and I want CNN to fly me to Charlotte!


The rules are there for a reason, so please keep videos to 45 seconds or less and photo submissions to 150 words or less.


Upload your iReport to the contest assignment here. The deadline for submissions is August 5, so don't delay!


If you have any questions about the contest, feel free to leave a comment here and we will respond.

Hi Zdan,


The subject line beneath my picture didn't start off by saying one of the noted phrases above, but I did start my essay with it. I hope this is ok! I would hate for my entry to be disqualified because of a dumb error on my part :(

I don't want to go to either city.  I'd rather eat mulch.

@jnews12 -- no worries. You can actually edit your iReport to include the phrase. On the iReport, it's on the left side of the page as "edit story." You can either make the phrase your headline or use it as the first line of the posting. Cheers!

You never know until you go... Right zdan :D  The edit story has saved me on a couple of my ireports.  That is a great feature.

I would rather be punched in the face by Mike Tyson than attend either of the corrupt political multi million dollar wastes of time.

I submitted a text entry, but it would not allow me to do so without submitting a video, picture, or audio file.  How was one supposed to submit just a text entry?
