Not wishing to upset anyone, they announced that the judges of the contest would be themselves and the regular correspondents to FIR — including yours truly!
As Shel says,
Contests on podcasts aren’t unusual. Todd Cochrane runs them routinely on Geek News Central, offering gadgets companies send him to review. Grammar Girl Heather Gorringe regularly gives away books. Neville and I have talked for some time about possibly running a contest, but just never got around to it.
We recorded our 300th episode late in December, and episode #307—recorded yesterday—marked the three-year anniversary of the show. These struck us as fairly significant milestones, which we chose to mark with a contest. The prize is a copy of our book, “How to Do Everything with Podcasting.” Three copies are up for grabs—one for a listener in North America, one in Europe, and one from a listener someplace else in the world (Australia, China, South America…anywhere).
The entry requirements are simple: In 400 words or less, complete this sentence: ”I think a podcast will help my organization/my client because…”
The contest is being judged by all the regular FIR correspondents: Sallie Goetsch, Lee Hopkins, Dan York, David Phillips and Eric Schwartzman (and Neville and me, of course). Be sure to read the full post for details and rules.
