So you entered our last two contests and didn't win. You're thinking that you might never get to attend SolidWorks World. Maybe your boss says he can't justify the expense. Well, my friend, you're in luck.
Starting today, you can enter to win the SolidWorks World 2011 Internet Correspondent Contest. The winner of this content wins a full SolidWorks World 2011 conference pass, as well as a hotel room for three nights and round trip airfare to and from San Antonio. See what your boss thinks about that!
The winner of the Internet Correspondent contest will meet up with me on January 23rd, where he or she will be provided with a video camera, a computer, and access to the press room at SolidWorks World 2011. He or she will be expected to cover the show through some combination of YouTube videos, tweets, Facebook posts, still pictures and blog entries to help bring the SolidWorks World experience to everyone who can't make it.
So how do you go about entering and winning this contest? Good question. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog entry telling us why we should pick you over everyone else. Why would you be the best Internet Correspondent? What would you do that no one else would think about? What insight could you bring that no one else could?
You have until 2:00 pm EST on November 22 to enter. On November 23rd, we'll look through all of the answers and pick a winner based on the creativity and originality of the responses. Looking for ideas? Check out Chris McAndrews' winning entry from last year, which he posted on his own blog.
You can click here to read the full terms and conditions of the contest. In a nutshell, you have to be 21 or older to enter, and citizens of Brazil, China and Quebec aren't eligible (sorry). If you work for Dassault Systemes, or a DS/SolidWorks reseller or partner, (or have any immediate family members who do) you can't enter. And if you slack off on your correspondent duties you'll face the unending ridicule of your peers, and no one wants that.
Don't forget, you can still save $100 if you register before January 7. And if you pay for two registrations, we'll throw in a third for free. And, as always, CSWPs save $100. You can see all of our registration deals at the SolidWorks World website.
