Is it possible to keep yourself away from your smartphone for a year? Vitaminwater is offering $100,000 if you can stay off smartphones for a year.

To be a participant of this contest, you will need to post a photo on Twitter or Instagram telling vitaminwater® why you need a break from your smartphone. What would you do with all that time? And yes, don’t forget to include hashtags #nophoneforayear and #contest on your post. From now until Jan. 8, users can enter the contest by posting to Twitter or Instagram.

In fact, the company is so confident that saying goodbye to a smartphone for 365 days is nearly impossible that it announced plans to give $100K to the first person who can do so successfully.

The company has released a list of ‘guidelines’ to be eligible for the competition.

  • You may not use any smartphone for 365 days. if texting is a pleasant experience or you can get on the internet, it’s probably a smartphone.
  • This means you may not physically operate, caress, hug or otherwise be physically affectionate with anyone’s smartphone
  • If you’re lying in bed and miss your phone, do not attempt to sneak a midnight scroll… just close your eyes and dream about Vitaminwater


Vitaminwater will choose one participant who will trade their smartphone for a 2000s era calling-only phone. If the challenger makes it for six months they get $ 10,000 and if they make it for the full year they win $100,000.

Vitaminwater didn’t go into detail about how they’ll monitor the contest but said lie detector tests will be involved.

Still, $100k for not using a smartphone for a year? Someone will definitely do that.
