Like every year, movie fans can go to Oscar.com to fill out their own ballot on who they think is most deserving of an Academy Award, but this year, there is a bonus. While there, you can also enter The Official Oscars Challenge Sweepstakes for a chance to win a grand-prize trip for two to Hollywood for the 2018 The Oscars Red Carpet fan experience.

As always, the Oscars are a “big deal,” but next year it will be even bigger celebrating 90 years. The grand prize winner of the sweepstakes will win a trip for two to Hollywood – including two nights’ hotel stay and airfare – to join the fans in the bleachers for the red-carpet arrival in 2018. Runner up winners will win a three day/two-night trip for two to Los Angeles, California, to attend a red-carpet premiere of Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in April/May 2017. Then, those winning the category prizes will receive a limited edition Oscars notebook and a DVD of each of the Best Picture nominees from the 89th Academy Awards.

Fans can make and edit their picks and enter the sweepstakes up until 5:30 p.m. PST on February 26, 2017. The Official Oscars Challenge sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 U.S. & D.C., 18 or older. No purchase necessary. For complete official rules and details, click here.

The 89th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be broadcast live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST.
