Win conference tickets in FIR listener contest

fir-contest We’re excited to announce an FIR Listener Contest where two listeners to the premier PR podcast can win a free ticket to go to one of two terrific events:

Web 2.0 Expo Europe in Berlin, Germany, on October 21-23, 2008 – the 3-day conference and exhibition for designers and developers, product managers, entrepreneurs, VCs, marketers, business strategists and anyone passionate about creating a better web ecosystem. Free entry to all conference sessions, workshops and the expo (ticket value €1,300).

Free entry to all sessions (ticket value $550).

What is the Contest?

  1. It’s simple – create a video that conveys a thought, a concept, an idea in an imaginative way.
  2. The video can be as long or as short as you wish, and you can use any tool you like to create it – seesmic, Qik, Kyte, Vimeo,, Utterli, YouTube, etc.
  3. Then, publish your video online and email the link to us at fircomments [at] gmail [dot] com. Do not send us your video, just a link to where it is online.

Send in your entries by 4.30pm UK time on Monday October 6.

See the short list of rules, below.

Here’s the announcement video on seesmic today:

Contest Rules and How To Enter

  3. In your email with a link to your published video, please provide your name, your email address and your location (country and city). You can also submit any other information you’d like to tell us, eg, your Twitter ID, but it’s not required to enter.
  4. Unless you indicate otherwise in your entry or email, we will assume a geographical bias: entries from the Americas are for the US conference, entries from the rest of the world are for the European conference.
