Re: How To Enter "Go To Airheads Nice, France" Contest 2012!

Although I am not a judge for this contest, I thought it might be helpful to suggest a few ideas. I've been involved in contests like this before, and saw which entries rose to the top and which ones didn't make the cut. Here are my thoughts.

 

The judges are looking for one person who really deserves the ticket. This doesn't mean that you have to be uniquely wonderful, however. I'm betting that anyone could go if only they could put together the right entry.

 

In the past, I've been surprised by how well some seemingly mundane stories have done in contests like this. The differencing factor seems to be the amount of thought and effort that went into the entry rather than the quality of the idea itself. This is not to say that a great idea won't win, just make sure that your idea is expressed with personality and clarity.

 

A trip to France is really an amazing prize, and it's too bad it has to be such a rare experience. Think about how you would share this experience with the world! I know I would love to see pictures, video, and personal experiences recounted.

 

Then there is the technical information you will gain at Airheads Conference. How will you share this with the world? How will you give of yourself to help others? I bet stories like that will sway the judges.

 

If you decide to make a video, you have an opportunity to show how well you will share your experience at Airheads Conference Nice. You don't need to be a professional videographer, but put a little care into the video and especially the audio. Nothing makes a good video like a clear audio track!

 

If you are writing, make sure your ideas are expressed clearly. You've got to hundred words, which is enough for a few paragraphs. My English teacher always told me to use those paragraphs with care. Divide your entry into a few thoughts, then explain them clearly with a paragraph for each.

 

I hope this helps!
