UPDATE: The winner has been chosen and it's Lindsey Baguio of Los Angeles, California. Watch her winning video here:
On Wednesday we announced a contest to send a reader on an all-expenses-paid trip to Vienna, Austria to cover the Life Ball on July 17th. The event is not only one of the world's largest AIDS fundraisers, but it's also a really good time.
The response was great--so great we decided to pick 11 finalists! (Editor's note: But now we're back down to 10 as one finalist has withdrawn.) We then asked each for a video or picture (if they don't have video capabilities) explaining why he or she should be chosen to cover the event for the Huffington Post. Voting ends Wednesday July 7th at noon, and the winner will be announced that day at 2pm.
