Tell Your Story at and Win a Subscription to Norton Online Backup, a Year's Supply of Gourmet Bacon, and Bacon-Themed Prizes!

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) -


To launch the newest version of Norton Online Backup, today Symantec announced the "Save Your Bacon with Norton" contest, where people can share their stories of data loss to win one of twelve bacon-loaded prize packs. Norton Online Backup is an easy-to-use online backup service that can "save your bacon" by protecting your most valuable files from loss or disaster. Awarded through a random drawing, all prize winners will receive a one year gourmet bacon-of-the-month club subscription and a full year's subscription to Norton Online Backup. Winners will also receive bacon dental floss, bacon mints, bacon soap and bacon lip balm. Everyone who enters will receive a free one-month trial to the updated service.


    * December 09, 2009 - February 28, 2010
    * First 6 winners selected: January 15, 2010
    * Next 6 winners selected: February 28, 2010



1) You tell us your data-loss horror stories -- like that time you actually lost your Macbook to a pack of rabid squirrels -- and how you either used online backup or wish you had. (Everyone who enters gets a free trial subscription to Norton Online Backup)

2) We review your submissions, maybe laugh at your foolishness or cry at your misfortune. Then we pick our favorites to be featured each week. For your entry to be featured, you must include either a photo, a link to a video or an awesome cartoon depicting what went down (but it's not a requirement to enter the contest drawing).

3) We promise not to cheat while randomly choosing 12 grand prize winners, split between two drawings -- first in January and then in March. The luckiest of the lucky will receive a one year delicious gourmet bacon-of-the-month club subscription (or, for our vegetarian friends, the cash equivalent). They'll also get bacon soap, bacon dental floss, bacon lip balm, bacon mints and, of course, 25 GB of free online backup for a year.

4) What are you waiting for? Get shakin' and get your dang bacon!
