The "100 Websites To See Before You Die" Contest: 25 Awesome Prizes

Alex Castle

Hopefully you've had a chance to check out our list of 50 Websites You Need to See Before You Die . If you have, you know that we're planning to run that list, with 100 entries, as the cover story for the February issue of Maximum PC. Problem is, we need 50 more. That's where you come in.

Read the list, then tell us what you think should be added to it. Remember, like the original story says, we're looking for sites that are "not the kind of website you put in your bookmarks bar and come back to again and again--they're the kind that you email to your friends along with a note that says 'holy s*** check this out.'"

What in it for you? Well, we've got TWENTY FIVE prizes to give away, and everyone who enters a site that makes it onto our list is entered to win. If two of your sites make it onto the list, you've got two chances to win. We'll pick the winners by random drawing on Monday the 29th, so you've got a little under one week to enter.

That's 25 great prizes for 50 entries. Come up with a good site, and your chances of winning are very good.

For information on the prizes, and full contest rules, see below:

"Dom Cobb (DiCaprio) is the best there is at extraction: stealing valuable secrets inside the subconscious during the mind’s vulnerable dream state. To end his fugitive status, he’s been asked to do the impossible: inception, planting an idea rather than stealing one. But nothing can prepare them for a dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy only Cobb could have seen coming."
