Apple just announced their 10 billion song downloads contest on iTunes — they’re giving away a $10,000 iTunes gift card to whoever downloads the 10 billionth song on iTunes. If you visit the contest page, you’ll notice the countdown is moving preeetty quickly. Currently, the countdown is nearing 9.9 billion, so if you want to enter, you may have to speed things up a bit.
Here’s a snippet taken from the contest rules page:
The prize will be awarded for the entry (either through a song download or through the non-purchase online entry) sent immediately following the download of the 9,999,999,999th song. The potential winner will be determined by the order of the entries received. In the event that more than one entrant would be a winner based on the simultaneous timing of entries, one entrant will be randomly selected from those entrants as the winner. Each entrant?s chances of winning are dependent upon the number of eligible entries received.
