Every winter, SolidWorks team travel somewhere warm to meet up with more than 5000 best friends from around the world for SolidWorks World. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re familiar with the event, even if you’ve never attended. Maybe you tune in to Twitter for all of the updates from the event, or maybe you keep an eye on all of the user blogs for updates. But have you ever read that stuff and thought you could do a better job–if only you could manage to get there? Well, now’s your change to prove it.
Starting today, you can enter to win the fourth annual SolidWorks World 2013 Internet Correspondent Contest. The winner of this content wins a full SolidWorks World 2013 conference pass, as well as a hotel room for three nights and round trip airfare to and from Orlando, Florida.
The winner of the Internet Correspondent contest will meet up with SolidWorks World Team on January 20, where he or she will be provided with a video camera, an iPad, and access to the press room at SolidWorks World 2013. He or she will be expected to cover the show through some combination of YouTube videos, tweets, Facebook posts, still pictures and blog entries to help bring the SolidWorks World experience to everyone who can’t make it.
So how do you go about entering and winning this contest? Good question. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog entry telling us why we should pick you over everyone else. Why would you be the best Internet Correspondent? What would you do that no one else would think about? What insight could you bring that no one else could?
You have until 11:59 pm EDT on November 25, 2012 to enter. On November 26, 2012 (or shortly thereafter), we’ll look through all of the answers and pick a winner based on the creativity and originality of the responses. Looking for ideas? Check out Chris McAndrew’s winning entry from 2009, Michael Lord’s winning entry from 2010 OR Kevin Goosie’s winning entry from 2011

You can click here to read the full terms and conditions of the contest. In a nutshell, you have to be 21 or older to enter, and citizens of Brazil, China and Quebec aren’t eligible (sorry). If you work for Dassault Systemes, or a DS/SolidWorks reseller or partner, (or have any immediate family members who do) you can’t enter. And if you slack off on your correspondent duties you’ll likely face unending ribbing, chiding, upbraiding, needling and any other number of quasi-derrogatory rebukes.
