There are a few of denim contests going on right now or starting soon, three to be exact, at least as far as I know.
The first, and in my opinion the most interesting one, is the Samurai contest. 30 participants are going to wear the new S0500XX for one year, from the first of November 2006 'til the first of November 2007. Guess what, I'm going to be in it!
I haven't received my jeans yet because I bought them from a former contestant who had ordered the wrong size, and the Singaporean postal service seems to be even worse than the Swedish.
I should get them this week, and pics will of course be posted here.

The second contest is the Bay Icon contest. I wrote about Swedish Bay Icon earlier [=>]
The model used is the new slim cut that has yet to hit stores. There are 30 contestants, all of whom are Swedish.
I'm a bit skeptic towards the choice of jeans though, as you know if you've read my other post about Bay Icon, as all their denim is treated, which slows down the wear process. I'm afraid that these jeans won't look as good as the could've, but I hope I'm wrong and wish all the contestants good luck!

The last contest is the SOLOxNudie contest. The store clerks at Solo are all going to wear Nudie's new model Even Steven for, I think it was, one year as a publicity stunt. I'm not sure if this is nation wide or just in Stockholm.
The jeans can be seen every day at your Solo store.
