What’s the next Grand Prize? You tell us…

        CloudCred Contest: Tell Us What You Think the New Grand Prize Should Be and Win an iPad Mini!


Since the Grand Prize of a trip for 2 to VMworld Europe is about to be given out, it’s time to decide on what the next Grand Prize will be. That’s right: a new Grand Prize will be awarded at the end of the year! Even better, if you share your thoughts on what the next Grand Prize should be, you could win an iPad Mini!


To be entered into the drawing, explain what you think the next Grand Prize should be and describe what the criteria should be for earning the prize.

A few things to keep in mind:

- Your grand prize idea must not exceed costs of $10,000USA.

- Be specific in the criteria needed to earn the prize. For ex: Will it be awarded to the top scoring team? Do you need to have certain badges to win?

- Be creative!

How do I win?

- Complete Task 625 and you will automatically be entered to win

The contest will run for 3 months, from July 20 to October 20, 2013 to make sure all users have time to brainstorm and come up with great ideas.


Good luck, and keep building your CloudCred!

Have you been climbing the leaderboard? Introducing:


            CloudCred Contest: Conquer the 30-Day Leaderboard and Win a 2TB NAS Storage Device!


For this new contest, we will be awarding the top user from the last month an Iomega StorCenter ix2 2TB! The user who earns the most points in the next 30 days will win this 2TB NAS. Sounds pretty straightforward, right?


Just remember, with the new release of CloudCred, we now have the ability to reject individual tasks and subtract those points from your total score. With this in mind, we hope that all users will participate and earn points fairly, placing an emphasis on quality of task completion.


The contest will run from July 20 to August 20, 2013.


Here’s a tip from us: Keep an eye out for bonus point tasks, such as the weekly Double-Point Friday events. It’s an easy way to pick up some extra points and help you rise to the top of the leaderboard.


Good luck, and keep building your CloudCred!
