Log in to like this post! Infragistics User Group Contest 2013: Let the Games Begin! Brian Lagunas / Wednesday, January 2, 2013 It’s that time again. Time to start the second annual Infragistics User Group Contest 2013. In case you missed it, last year I started the very first Infragistics User Group Contest 2012. This contest started as a way to help break the ice and loosen up the attendees during my sessions at the user groups I would present at. Once the groups learned they would be competing with other like-minded groups of people from around the country, the competition was on! I actually think the Lincoln .NET User Group attendees started cracking their knuckles and chest bumping when they were prepping for their photo. Now, this contest has grown beyond the user groups I present at, beyond the user groups in the US, and has now been expanded to ALL user groups in ALL countries, and ALL Infragistics presenters! Every Infragistics presenter who speaks at a user group will be able to enter you into the contest. Not only will the contestant pool get bigger, but the prize will be bigger too. The prize for 2013 will be a $500 gift card for your user group! Can you say P.A.R.T.Y!!!!!? The Rules The rules are simple. The user group that has the most eye catching, fun, exciting, smile producing, and laugh inducing picture will win. The picture must be taken the day/night of the presentation and the Infragistics presenter must either take the picture or be part of the picture. The picture can be taken at any location and is not restricted to the location of the presentation. The picture must be taken between Jan 1, 2013 and Dec 31, 2013. Only the Infragistics presenter can submit the photo. The Contestants Any user group, in any country, that an Infragistics employee presents at is eligible. If your group is lucky enough to have more than one Infragistics presenter during then 2013 year; sorry, but a user group can only be entered once for the 2013 contest. No other event presentations qualify for this contest. The Prize The winner of the Infragistics User Group Contest 2013 will win a $500 gift card for their user group. Note: If you throw a party you must invite me :0) The Timeframe The contest will run from Jan 1, 2013, to the last scheduled UG talk in December 2013. At the end of the year, we will choose the best photo to decide the winner. If you want a chance to participate in this fun little contest in 2013, then simply request a speaker for your user group meeting. Not only will Infragistics send someone to give an awesome talk at your group, but you will be entered into the Infragistics User group Contest 2013. Its that easy!
