Enter the mascot competition and win a tablet PC

Poster of the EGI mascot competition

EGI is looking for a mascot – our characterful ambassador to feature in posters, t-shirts and other goodies and give aways.

But what could this be? Is it an animal, a plant or a mineral? Something abstract? We don’t know so we set up the EGI Mascot Competition to find out.

Use your imagination and surprise us. Submit your idea to the competition and you might win a tablet computer and a free registration to the Community Forum in Munich (26-30 March 2012).

Here is how it’s going to work:

  • Submission of ideas opens 15 October 2011

  • Deadline for submissions is 31 December 2011

  • Online voting will take place between 11 January-8 February 2012

  • The winners will be announced on 15 February 2012

How to enter the competition

Come up with a great idea for a mascot. Tell us what it is, and why and how it represents the European Grid Infrastructure (in no more than 150 words). You can also include an optional image of any kind to support your entry – from a raw sketch to a final drawing, or even a photograph (file format: GIF, PNG or JPEG, 400 pixel maximum on the longest side). While submitting an image is not compulsory, we strongly suggest that you do, because it will help to communicate your idea, especially for the online voting.

When you have all the entry requirements, you are ready to submit. E-mail your submission to mascot@egi.eu with ‘Mascot entry’ in the subject line (this e-mail address is for submitting an entry only. For enquiries, please contact press@egi.eu). You can submit more than one entries, but each entry must be sent in a separate e-mail.
