You think you got the best presentation skills?! Well, a contest organized by Slideshare has just opened, running from the 25th June to July 31st, enough time to have all your entries in by then. You are free to convince the world about anything, could be your dream, NGOs, the suffering in your community - a sure way to get that word out on finally getting the publicity you so much desired for your community or project.
Enter different presentations at most 10 times to increase chances of clinching the master prize, here. Remember to register, if you do not have an account, and files must not be more than 50 MB, read more of the contest rules, at bottom of this page. Nothing to do with illegal or pornographic material is allowed for submission. East African nationals are free to participate as they not part of the banned countries list. Sudan is the only African nation banned from participation, according to the rules.
Taking time to look at the winning presentations of 2007, is motivating as it would give you a clue to what odds you have to beat to win. I have enjoyed shift happens - voted among the winning presentations last year.
