Nokia is currently sponsoring drama on Channel 4 here in the UK. This campaign covers the popular TV show Homeland and the Finnish manufacturer has tasked consumers to send in their most dramatic shots on Twitter, using the hashtag #nokia4drama.
To get more folks involved in the run up to Christmas, Nokia is asking everyone to tweet in their "Christmas S-elfie' to be eligible for a chance to appear on TV. Not only will you grow a following with your dramatic expression aired on TV, but there's a Lumia Windows Phone (hint: Lumia 1020) up for grabs too.
Should you be one of the lucky entrants who are selected, you'll be featured on the Nokia4Drama promotional idents on Channel 4 between 9-10pm on Sunday 22nd December, as well as bagging a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone. If there was ever a time to brush off those cobwebs in your bathroom where the classic MySpace "selfies" were taken, now is definitely it.
Remember, this week's theme is Christmas. You'll need to get your selfie in by the closing date and be sure to read the rules before submitting. No children or pets are allowed in the photos, and when tweeting the shot, you're not to include the #Homeland hashtag or request retweets, etc.
If you haven't followed the Nokia4Drama campaign, Nokia has been having some fun with the marketing side, visiting a busy London pub to inject some excitement into the lazy Sunday. If you're not a fan of clowns, the above video isn't for you, but it's interesting to see how an exploding salad and spy managed to excite a tablet inside the establishment.
Nokia also released three videos on its YouTube channel, one for Romeo and Juliet, another for Aladdin and the last video for Scrooge. Check them out below, they're fairly humorous. Have you been submitting your self-shots? Be sure to get them in before the deadlines pass. UK only.

Is this a joke? Are you being serious?
Serious, you guys get all unlocked phones and now this? I can't even get a fully compatible 1020 or 1520 with my carrier and now I can't even enter to win a actual compatible 1020?? Its so stupid.
Every comp or deal on here is always 99% US ONLY inc the current MS 12 Days of Christmas so let us have this one eh =)
Maybe it's because I don't know this whole christmas carol story, but I thought it wasn't funny at all...
Another NON US contest! Such BS, I'm so sick of the US being ignored with all these contests and giveaways!
