On August 30th we joined forces with Time To Log Off and launched a competition to celebrate the launch of a new book written by the group’s founder, Tanya Goodin: Off. Your Digital Detox, a practical guide to help people tame their smartphone addictions in the age of hyper-connectivity.
To enter the competition people had to submit a 140 statement describing why they need a digital detox. People from everywhere in the world entered and on September 6th we selected the 5 most convincing reasons for going off grid. The lucky winners get to take home a signed copy of the new book and an MP 01 mobile phone.
Are you one of the lucky ones? Here are the winners!:
You have one life, stretched between infinities of darkness. The brightest thing in your day should not be the screen of your smartphone.

My case is one of simple addiction. My smartphone is a constant distraction and I want some brain space back. With style!
I notice my 13 year old daughter struggling with personal relationships and feel it is due to her modelling my "gadget addiction" behaviour.
I believe that you can be a modern and successful entrepreneur without being a slave to any technological device.
