The big Star Trek convention in Las Vegas kicks off today. Plus there is a Star Trek: Live In Concert screening in Philadelphia tonight. But not everyone can make it to Vegas or Philly so TrekMovie wants all Trekkies to have a fun way to share their love for Trek this weekend, by posting ‘TrekSelfies’ – and you can even win a prize for doing it. More details below.
Post a #TrekSelfie and Win Prizes
Today is a big day for Star Trek events. The official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas kicks off four days of Star Trek fun, and on the other side of the country there is a screening and performance of Star Trek: Live In Concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Both events are great ways for people to express their love for Star Trek and TrekMovie is celebrating the both by inviting people attending those events to take ‘#TrekSelfies’ and post them to Facebook or Twitter. And even if you aren’t lucky enough to be able to attend these events, you can still participate by posting your TrekSelfie from anywhere.
Not only is it a fun way to show your Trek, but TrekMovie will be awarding prizes to one participant each day starting today (Thursday) and through to the end of the Vegas Star Trek Con on Sunday (through the generosity of Entertainment Earth/BifBangPow, Cider Mill Press, IDW Publishing, and We Love Fine)

How To Enter #TrekSelfie Contest
To enter, simply post a picture of yourself on Twitter using the #TrekSelfie hashtag, or on Facebook using the #TrekSelfie hashtag. Posting multiple TrekSelfies is OK. You can chose how you want to express your love of Star Trek, so it isn’t just for pictures in costume or Trek apparel (feel free to be creative).
Prize winners will be chosen at random each day (Thursday July 31st – Sunday August 3rd) at midnight PST (TrekSelfies posted on Wednsday July 30th count towards the Thursday prize). Each day’s winner will be notified via Twitter or Facebook. Entrants must follow @TrekMovie on Twitter or Like TrekMovie’s brand new Facebook page to qualify (winners will be notified via DM or Message.
