Enter Your Video in the “Write the Rules, Own the Game” Contest

- May 5, 2010 - 0 Comments

Our minds were buzzing with all of the ideas we took home from Partner Summit 2010 last week, and one of the key themes we kept returning to was this year’s theme: “Write the Rules, Own the Game.” As Keithflip camera Goodwin, SVP of WW Partners explained, partners can write the rules for new market transitions, and own the game by competing using these new rules, rather than being controlled by rules of the market.

One of the other big points that kept coming up during both keynote sessions and networking events was the importance of video: From CEO John Chambers to CTO Padmasree Warrior, partners heard about how video is a “killer app” that will transform the way we do business.

Now you have a chance put those ideas together: Create a short video that looks at what “Write the Rules, Own the Game” means to you, and head over to the Channels Buzz community enter it in our video contest, which is open to all Cisco Registered partners. Every contest has a winner, and this one’s no different: The top prize is a US$1000 gift card.

All entries are due by May 14, so get those cameras rolling. More details…

Your video can be super short—it should be no longer than 90 seconds, so it shouldn’t take too long to put together. Here’s your chance to get creative—after all, sitting in the director’s chair is fun! Just ask James Cameron, one of the Rule Writers—with his 3D movie Avatar, he’s changed filmmaking forever. (Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to submit 3D masterpieces in this contest.)

Need some inspiration or ideas? Check out this video example, which can help get your artistic juices flowing. And if you need a little guidance on how to craft your video, here’s Five Tips for Filming Your Next Video to help guide you through the process. Now pull out your Flip camera and hop to it!
