By The Open Group Conference Team
UPDATE: The deadline for submitting photos has been extended to Thursday, February 9 at 12:01 a.m. PT. Winners of each category will be announced on Monday, February 13 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
The Open Group Conference San Francisco is well underway. In addition to a list of great speakers and tonight’s dinner at the Peacock Room at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins, we will also be holding The Open Group Photo Contest once again!
Many of our conference attendees are already familiar with the photo contest from previous conferences, but here are the details for those of you who haven’t yet participated or need a short refresher on our guidelines.
The categories will include:
- Best of San Francisco
- Best on the Conference Floor
- Best of the Tuesday Member Dinner
Like previous contests, all photos will be uploaded to The Open Group’s Facebook page, and members can vote by “liking” a photo. Photos with the most “likes” in each category will win the contest. Photos will be uploaded in real-time, so the sooner you submit a photo, the more time members will have to vote on it.
At the San Francisco conference, the winner of each category will receive an Eye-FI Pro X2, a wireless SDHC memory card that allows users to upload photos directly to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, which will facilitate participation in future Open Group Photo Contests!
All photos must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your full name and the photo’s category upon submission. The submission period will end on Wednesday, February 1 at 9:00 a.m. PT, with the winner to be announced at noon on the same day.
