Microsoft SharePoint launched a unique contest platform called SharePoint journeys. We hear inspiring stories all of the time about where SharePoint professionals are on their “journeys” and what they plan to do next. This contest is a chance for
developers, admins, partners and others to showcase how they’ve used SharePoint to enhance their organizations. As an incentive, three winning submissions receive a pass to SharePoint Conference 2011 in Anaheim, CA, and a chance to speak to their video.
The contest is underway and we’re asking SharePoint users to create a two-minute video illustrating their use of SharePoint in one of three categories.
• Ramping Up: Early use of SharePoint using a few of the workloads for part of an organization to improve how people share information and work together. Examples include building team sites or MySites, deploying Intranet sites or portals,
or implementation of an extranet to collaborate with partners.
• Building Momentum: Consolidation of content management and collaboration infrastructure on SharePoint to drive broad adoption across an organization and beyond. Examples include using multiple workloads, implementing dotcom sites, and
end user adoption success.
• Driving Business Value: Building applications on SharePoint that integrate back end data in documents, business processes and web experiences. Examples include building custom applications, business intelligence solutions and FAST search
for Internet sites.
And we want to know what’s next for you with SharePoint.
Right now the site only allows for submissions, but as videos come in we will turn on several interactive pieces of the site that will allow for social media sharing, commenting and rating of videos, and the ability to embed videos into personal blogs.
Contest submissions and voting close on February 16, 2011. Check out our website (www.sharepointjourneys.com) for all the details on judging criteria and how your friends, colleagues and readers can help your video entry win!
Note – entries must be submitted in English
