HBO's Girls returns Sunday, Jan. 13, and twenty-somethings everywhere are anticipating season two of the hit series, which chronicles the post-collegiate lives of four girls living and experiencing New York City. Non-Sex and the City style.

There's a scene in season one where Hannah (played by Lena Dunham) has dinner with her parents and they break the news to their one and only daughter that she is being cut off. Without a steady job and income, Hannah frantically looks for ways to come up with rent money, only to have her best friend and roommate Marnie (Allison Williams' character) spot her for the time being.

Therefore, this contest announced by Navy Yard-based retailer Urban Outfitters and HBO pays homage to the twenty-somethings struggling to make rent: One lucky winner will have his or her rent paid in full for one year, and receive an apartment makeover worth up to $5,000.

How does one enter?!

Starting Monday, Jan. 7 through Jan. 21, contestants are asked to take a photo of themselves in their apartment, and to upload the image to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #UOXGIRLS. Eligible (as in appropriate and related) photo entries will then be featured on HBO's connect site. The winner will be selected at random. For complete details, visit
