By The Open Group Conference Team
You’ve all seen the great photos our members produce during conferences, and as The Open Group Conference in Barcelona draws closer, it’s no surprise that we will be hosting the photo contest once again. The prize? A free pass to attend any one of the Open Group conferences in 2013!
Many of you are already familiar with the photo contest from previous conferences, but here are the details for those of you need a short refresher:
We will have two categories for this conference – which means you have two chances to win:
- The Modernista Award for any photo taken in and around Barcelona.
- Best of Barcelona Conference for any photo taken during the conference. This includes photos of any of the conference sessions, candid photos of Open Group members.
Similar to previous contests, all photos will be uploaded to The Open Group’s Facebook page, where members and Open Group Facebook fans can vote by “liking” a photo. Photos with the most “likes” in each category will be named the winner. Submissions will be uploaded in real-time, so the sooner you submit a photo, the more time members and fans will have to vote for it!
Conference attendees are free to participate, and winners of each category will receive a free conference pass to any global Open Group conference over the next year – an over $1,000/€ 900 value!
All photos must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter with the #ogPhoto hashtag. Please include your full name and the photo’s category upon submission. The submission period will end on Sunday, October 28 at 10:00 p.m. PT, with voting ending on Friday, November 2 at noon PT. The winners will be announced during the afternoon on Friday, November 2.
