We kicked off the #IntelPhotoContest across our schools in the US by randomly giving away t-shirts at some of our on-campus Intel Events. The winners (randomly drawn) got an Intel t-shirt that said “I want to be the next Intel Rock Star”. The ONLY requirement for their photo submission was that we needed to see the t-shirt in the photo. Simple enough, right? And to reward their creativity, we offered up 3 uber cool prizes for the best submissions:
- Grand prize: a high end Intel powered Samsung 9 Series laptop with a Core i5 processor.
- 2nd place: 40” Internet TV (with Intel Inside of course)
- 3rd place: a snazzy new Netbook. (I’m sure I don’t have to tell you whose (atom) processor was inside that either :-) )
We weren’t quite sure what to expect: I mean we knew that we met some awesome students on campus but man did they WOW us with their submissions! We had participants from 19 schools! For our first official contest, not a bad showing, right? It really looks like they had a lot of fun coming up with their ideas too. All of the content can be found on our Flickr page – The Intel Student Lounge.
Winners were selected by a small team of judges that work for Intel in various capacities (we all shared a common ‘twitter’ bond), and we picked the ones that we found to be most interesting and creative. A great job to all students who submitted their photos!
The winners of the contest are below, along with their respective photo. Don’t stop looking here though. We got some GREAT submissions that you will want to see. Visit our Flickr Page and tell us which ones YOU like!
