Microsoft has launched a video contest called “SharePoint journeys,” which allow customers to share their SharePoint experiences with the world and win prizes from the company. The contest went live on December 17th, SharePoint users to create a two-minute video either .WMV or .MP4. illustrating their use of SharePoint in one of three categories including: “Ramping Up, Building Momentum and Driving Business Value,” (videos must be submitted in English), and can be uploaded up until February 16, 2011.
Through these videos, we want SharePoint professionals to share and review their work, inspire each other to think about SharePoint in new ways, and take the next step on their journey.
Right now the site only allows for submissions, but as videos come in we’ll turn on the interactive pieces of the site that will allow for social media sharing, commenting on videos, and the ability to embed videos into personal blogs,” revealed a member of the SharePoint team.
Microsoft will offer a grand prize for each of the contest’s categories, each containing a pass to SharePoint Conference 2011 October 3-6, 2011 in Anaheim, California.
