MIAMI – Imagine no selfies or checking your Instagram feed or whatever else you do on your smartphone. Could you do it for a year?

What about for a massive amount of cold hard cash?

VitaminWater is offering $100,000 to the person who can ditch their smartphone and go without it for a full year.

365 days. 525,600 minutes. 31557600 seconds.

Oddly enough, if you can detach yourself and want to enter for a shot at the money, you can make your pitch by sharing your story on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtags #nophoneforayear and #contest.

One participant will be selected and will be forced to hand over their smartphone (must be 2000s-era phone) for a full year.

If the pressure is too much to take, the winner can still pocket $10,000 for making it to the six-month mark.

If you're up for it, you can enter through January 9, 2019.
