'The Makeshifters' contest will allow consumers to upload videos and pictures explaining to the world why they need a new home theater. All user-submitted content is then voted upon (beginning June 8), then one grand prize winner will get to enjoy the following:

  • Yet-to-be-named high-performance flat-screen TV
  • Denon AVR987 receiver and DVD757 disc player
  • Boston Acoustics P430 speakers with XB6 subwoofer and Bravo II surround speakers
  • Denon AH-D2000 headphones and a D-dock for use with an iPod
  • Universal remote control with video display
  • $500 Circuit City DVD and CD shopping spree.
  • Circuit City Firedog installation service to get your new home theater up and running.

  • And it doesn't end with electronic equipment; La-Z-Boy is also giving the grand-prize winner Matinee seating for four to six people plus an additional $10,000 worth of furniture from their Matinee line.

    So start filming--the earlier you submit your video, the more time it has for people to vote for it. The deadline for all photos and videos is July 20, and the winner will be announced on August 24.
