One of the previous competitions we took part in with Ivy Worldwide won the prestigious Circle Award so we are very much looking forward to making some waves with this competition.

The OSNN competition has now finished.

You can also follow updates on my Twitter account assuming I remember that it exists:
http://twitter.com/electronicpunk/

Some conditions apply and you need to be aware of those: if you win a prize bundle in one of the websites, then you can’t win again in the whole competition. We will try to send you the prize bundle, but depending where you live customs and tax conditions may prevent this. In this case we will provide you with an equivalent credit on a HP online store.
Here is a list of the sites involved with the promotion:

Re: [Coming soon] OSNN, Ivy Worldwide, Microsoft and HP Giveaway

Ok, so it has taken me the last four and a half hours of reading my emails (submitted when private messages were received) , I have finally managed to work my way through and select it a winner.

Trust me, it has not been an easy process as we have had many great entries and it sucks that today it is only possible for me to make a fraction of our entries happy. I really wanted to give these two laptops, the software to keep them linked and the bag to one of the many people that seemed like they would really benefit from the hardware.

Keeping the two laptops together was really the key and of course using the software to keep your documents on both machines synchronised at all times was the name of the game. So as gracious as offering relatives and friends the mini would have been, they would not have been together!

I didn't exactly know how I was going to handle picking a winner, I had the choice of randomly picking from anyone or working my way through and the latter is what I chose to do.

Obviously there can only be one winner but I am glad that so many new people have managed to find this site and I hope you will stick around to see what we have to offer.
So yes, without further ado I would like to announce that

The winner of the OSNN, Ivy Worldwide, HP, Microsoft, Timbuk2 Better Together giveaway is Vanessa237!

Like many of our entries, she is at college and will greatly benefit from the ability to have a larger laptop at home and one to take to class for notes.

So congratulations and consolations to everyone else, I just wish there is more I could have done as I did hear lots of sad stories, but you are preaching to the choir!

Lastly thanks to everyone that entered and completed the survey as that will really help us out and a special thanks to Jewelzz for working with the hardware and the rest of the OSNN team for dealing with the increased work and my ranting and raving.

Competitions on other sites are still ongoing so it is not too late to get your hands on some hardware, good luck!

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you can't enjoy yourself! :D

Re: [Coming soon] OSNN, Ivy Worldwide, Microsoft and HP Giveaway

I think Microsoft should have added Windows 7 in there. This contest would of gotten a lot more publicity that way! Not that I need Windows 7, but it would of made more sense for Microsoft or HP to include it. Plus they should have included Office 2007. They did that the last time too!

The contest will be over before Windows 7 is released.

Maybe you should work for HP or Microsoft. If you're lucky they'd listen to your ideas

First HP promotional code & HP Circle Award

This code was posted earlier on today, but I wanted to get the word out a little more and the code is still active of course! I also wanted to mention the HP Circle award that Ivy Worldwide recieved for their work with the 31 Days of the Dragon promotion last year.

So firstly, as part of the Back To School Giveaway we are posting our first competition-exclusve offeron a new HP Pavilion dv6z series laptop.

Secondly, here is the information about the Circle award which Ivy Worldwide have recieved:

We have some great news that we want to share with all of you who participated in the 31 Days of Dragon with us -- because this news affects every one of you. Ivy Worldwide/Buzz Corps was named the winner of HP’s prestigious Circle Awards for the program! The competition was fierce and there were many entrants with compelling results. However, the panel of HP judges determined that the 31 Days of Dragon Program was the clear winner!

All of us at Ivy Worldwide are thrilled to win, but winning without sharing the news is a little empty. Therefore, we wanted to let all of you know about this win. It isn’t just Ivy/Buzz Corps that won – it is all of you as well. We hope you will share this news with all of your readers as they also helped to make this award a possibility.

Created to celebrate MARKETING AND DESIGN EXCELLENCE at the company, HP's CIRCLE Awards have created some fierce internal competition. In 2009, the global technology leader saw an unprecedented 411 entries pouring in from 36 participating countries for the chance to be recognized with this prestigious award sponsored by HP's GLOBAL MARKETING EXECUTIVES.

Entries were judged according to the CIRCLE criteria of Collaboration, Innovation, Relevance, Consistency, LEADERSHIP, and Effectiveness. The overall goal: to reward CREATIVITY, ROI and brand building. In the first round of judging, review panels from within HP chose finalists in each of 14 categories. In the second round, executive judges were invited to HP headquarters to select CIRCLE Award winners
So thanks to everyone on OSNN that made this a great competition last time for everyone! Such an award proves that this kind of interaction with sites such as ours has really impressed the companies such as HP and we continue to enjoy working together!
