Want your own island? If so, Samsung is giving you the chance to win your own in the “SOS Island: Survival of the Smartest.” While marooned in a deserted island, you’ll be armed with only a Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, a version of the S4 with a powerful camera, and a Samsung Galaxy NX camera.

The Korean tech giant announced on Samsung Tomorrow, “Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the ‘SOS Island: Survival of the Smartest’ campaign, an interactive live-stream reality series.

“TV star and survival expert Les Stroud will train 16 global contestants for their best hope at surviving the competition at the center of the online video series. It will be shot and live-streamed from the remote “SOS Island” in the Caribbean. Viewers will vote for a winner from the comfort of their PCs and smart phones. The last remaining contestant wins the grand prize: their own island.”

Les Stroud, TV survival expert, said, “This will be a really big adventure for the contestants and the online fans. Samsung combines cutting edge media trends and platforms with a subject I am most passionate about — survival. Samsung is paving the way for how brands produce and share content that reach audiences across the globe.”

Samsung further explains, “The contestants will face rigorous challenges on SOS Island demonstrating the photographic capabilities of Samsung’s GALAXY S4 zoom smartphone and GALAXY NX camera. They will share the images direct from their devices to the Samsung Camera Facebook page while trying to outsmart the competition, win the most votes and be crowned ‘The Smartest’ later this year.”

The challenge starts broadcasting on Facebook and YouTube “from September 30th to November 31st, 2013.” The winner of the competition “will be announced December 9th and be awarded the opportunity to win their own private island experience, a package worth $100,000 U.S. dollars.”
