Doing something amazing with your Intel processor? Tell Intel and Win Big!

Calling all innovators, educators, entertainers, communicators and creators – or anyone with a story to tell about their processor! Intel kicked off a cool contest today inviting creative people to tell their story about how they are using an Intel processor-based PC to do something amazing. Check out this site for more info.


So many different stories could fit into that “amazing” category. This contest is really pretty simple. Just consider all of the different things you’ve been able to do or create thanks to the power and performance of your Intel processor and then tell Intel your story. Maybe you’re using high-def video, audio or graphics as a digital artist or musician. Maybe you’re a budding filmmaker thanks to the processor inside your PC. Perhaps you’re a teacher using an Intel processor to bring advanced technology into your classroom in a unique and engaging way or you’re a multi-tasking mom who uses the power of an Intel processor to stay on top of your own and your kids’ schedules and stay in touch with family and friends.

Submitting your story is easy. You can upload an image, audio or video file (your choice on the format) along with a story to describe your project or experience, explaining how the Intel processor played a key role in your design, or how your design was inspired by the speed, efficiency and power of the Intel processor. You can get started with the submission here. The contest is open to U.S. residents (except Puerto Rico) who are at least 18 years old. No purchase necessary to participate. You can find all of the rules and details about the contest here. Move quickly, the first 100 qualified entries get a free t-shirt! The last day to submit your story is January 15, 2009.

Submissions will be evaluated on the relevance of processor in the design and innovative use of technology, as well as and overall creativity. Once you’ve submitted, tell your family, friends, co-workers and anyone else you know to go to the site and vote for your story. The official contest judges will then select the winners from the top 10 vote-getters at the conclusion of the community voting period. Winners will be announced on March 2, 2009.

The best part of the contest? The prizes! The grand prize winner gets an Intel Centrino 2-based laptop of his or her choice (valued up to $3,000), $300 in cash and a $200 gift card. The second place winner also get a Centrino 2-based laptop (valued up to $2,000), $200 in cash and a $100 gift card. And there’s even a cool price for third place, too – an Intel Atom-based Netbook (valued up to $1,000) and $100 in cash.

These are three no-brainer reasons (particularly in this economy) to go submit your story today!
