Last week we announced that we were holding a competition in conjunction with the Edge Of The Web conference, which is on next week in Perth. To enter, all you had to was follow us on Twitter (@sitepointdotcom) and tell us (via a public post to the Twittersphere) why you think you deserved to win the free ticket.
The results are in!
There were a stack of entries, ranging from the bleeding heart pleas to the more humorous to the extreme end of brown nosing, and we loved them all! Here are a few of our favourites, though:
However, the entry that we decided was most deserving was the following, posted by Raelene Carr, from Edith Cowan University:
We’re delighted to be sending you along to the conference, Raelene!
Note: Edith Cowan University is also a sponsor of the Edge Of The Web conference, although I didn’t know this at the time I selected the winning entry. Regardless, Raelene shouldn’t be disadvantaged by this fact. Congratulations, Raelene!
