They will receive a package from Sony Electronics that includes a grand Wega 42" HDTV set, a DVD Dream System Surround sound system and a DVD Handicam Camcorder.
Each submission should be between 30 seconds and three minutes in length and submitted in either VHS or DVD format. All submissions should be sent to: RE-PLAY:SURVIVOR, Television City, 7800 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036.
