It’s time to start the third annual Infragistics User Group Contest for 2014.  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!  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 sponsored user groups!  That’s right!  Any user group sponsored by Infragistics can submit their own photo into the contest.

Let’s cover the rules.

The Rules

The rules are simple.  The user group that has the most eye catching, fun, exciting, smile producing, feel good, or laugh inducing picture will win.  The picture must be taken the day/night of the presentation.  The picture must be taken between Jan 1, 2014 and Dec 31, 2014.  Only the user group leader can submit the photo. One entry per user group allowed.

The Contestants

Any user group, in any country, that is sponsored by Infragistics can participate in the contest.  Your user group can only be entered once for the 2014 contest.  No other event presentations qualify for this contest.

The Prize

MONEY!  The winner of the Infragistics User Group Contest 2014 will win a $500 gift card for their user group.

The Timeframe

The contest will run from Jan 1, 2014 to  December 31, 2014.  At the end of the year, we will choose the best photo to decide the winner.  The winner will be announce on the Infragistics blog.
