Genesis of a Great Idea $10,000 Contest
The launch of this Social Media Contest happened at Blog World Expo 2009 on Friday October 16th. Dr. Lindsey Duncan, John Andrews of Collective Bias and Katja Presnal of Skimbaco took the stage to explain the contest and talk about Genesis Today.
This is a fantastic contest because it is anonymous. The panel who is judging will not have any information on the person who has submitted the idea. So this is not a “popular blogger” contest. How refreshing.
Here are the contest guidelines…
Here are the basics:
Submit your idea (250 words or less)
You will have to enter your name etc…but the panel will not see ANY of your information. This will only be viewed by one person who will be organizing that part of it.
5 semi finalist will be chosen.
Those 5 will be flown to Austin Texas the week of January 11th (not sure of exact dates, but plan on 2 days)
All expenses will be paid for.
The panel will hear the 5 ideas and will chose 1 winner for the $10,000 cash.
The other 4 will win $1,000 each.
The the winner will help to put their idea into reality.
