We established the IT Peer Network at Intel to bring together a community of IT professionals who could share best practices, provide sound advice, and discuss the latest enterprise trends. The response has been great, but we know we can connect with even more people to grow a collective knowledge base that everyone can access. To help encourage this growth over the summer, we’re offering guest bloggers the chance to win a new tablet or laptop for submitting content that benefits the IT community. It’s the Battle of the Bloggers!
Starting Sunday, June 1st and ending Tuesday, September 30, 2014, guest blog submissions will be entered to win a Dell tablet, HP laptop, or Lenovo 2 in 1 device. There are multiple ways to enter, so be sure to take advantage of all the opportunities to win.
Two Ways to Win!
To enter the sweepstakes, entrants must create a profile within Intel’s IT Peer Network (https://communities.intel.com/create-account.jspa) and submit a blog within the ITPN. Each blog that is approved and published in the ITPN will serve as one contest entry. Members may enter the contest by submitting a blog no more than five times per month.
Entries should be no less than 300 words. ITPN best practices include blog entries that are between 300-600 words. Each blog must include an image or other media (i.e. a video or info graphic). Third party materials will not be accepted. We encourage entrants to get creative but overall, the blogs should have elements of IT best practices, strategies, tools or trends. In general, topics in the ITPN include: Mobility, Big Data, Cloud, Security, and Productivity, Workplace Transformation, IT thought leadership and the Internet of Things.
ITPN members may refer a new blogger to write for the ITPN—when the new blogger posts their first blog, the existing blogger receives their referral entry, and the new blogger receives their first entry. Referral entries are limited to one per ITPN member and are counted in addition to any original blog posts. For example, if an ITPN member submits five blogs and refers an approved new ITPN member, they will have a total of six entries in the contest.
Dell Venue 11 Pro Tablet (retail value, $499), 8 awarded
Lenovo Ultrabook Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2 (retail value, $1,259), 2 awarded
HP Elitebook Ultrabook 820 G2 Revolve (retail value, $1,499), 2 awarded
Winners will be determined on June 30, July 31. August 31, and September 30, 2014 in a random drawing conducted by an Intel representative from among all eligible entries.
We look forward to seeing the wealth of knowledge IT professionals will provide to the larger community! Don’t delay—submit your blog post this week.
