Alan Bishop will be posting a specific video mission (#missionunplug) every week for you to embark on. We'll post the video mission on Monday and alert everyone via Facebook or Twitter which mission is eligible for the contest. You will have until 10 p.m. EST the following Sunday to upload your response to the featured mission.
We're awarding a $50 gift card for Atmosphere each week for the best uploaded video mission response. What do we mean by "the best"? Record yourself succeeding in a video mission in a spectacular way, highlight an amazing location or fail hilariously, if it makes an impression on us, you may get that week's prize.
If you don't know how to upload your video response to the site, don't worry. Step by step instructions are available on the Video Missions page. If you miss a week or are coming to the campaign late, you can still participate.

If you're reading this, you're probably online right now which means you could most likely use a break... and not for a chocolate bar. OPERATION UNPLUGGED is a Canada-wide movement to get you to look up from your networked devices and go outside for some real-world interaction. We're giving you missions to get off your duff and go into the great outdoors (or at least stuff that's outdoor related). Then we want you to come back here to share what you've done for prizes and a sense of accomplishment because, you know, it's something you can brag about. So stop reading status updates and Uplug. Go Out. Explore.
