Grand Prize Remote Attendee Contest


Sharing is good… and it could make you a winner. Share your excitement for Cisco Live and be entered to win prizes.


Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. We just want a few. 

Participate in the Cisco Live photo caption contest by providing your most creative caption to our posted photo each Tuesday — and you could win an Amazon Fire Tablet.  Weekly winners receive Anker SoundBuds Slim's Headphones.

Photos from previous Cisco Live events will be featured.  Chime in with your caption, and you could be a winner.

How does it work?

Each Tuesday from April 30 through May 31 we will post a photo on the Cisco Live Facebook page and ask you and other members of the Cisco Live community to give us a caption.  The photo caption with the most “Likes” 48 hours after the photo is posted will be the weekly winner.

Get the Cisco Live spirit early and have some fun with these photos.  The more creative your caption, the better. And don’t forget to vote for your favorites!

Four winners will receive Anker SoundBuds Slim’s Headphones. One grand-prize winner will receive an Amazon Fire Tablet. We will contact each winner with details. If the winners are not attending Cisco Live 2019 in San Diego, their prize will be mailed.

The Cisco Live Team Wants to Reward You for Your Reporting Skills.

Do you have a nose for news and a way with words? If so, you have what it takes to be a Cisco Live correspondent – and your tweeting, blogging, captioning, and Facebooking could earn you prizes!

Just before, during, and right after Cisco Live 2019, the #CLUS social media team will be monitoring the social media and online content that attendees share to see who is worthy of being recognized as a Cisco Live Correspondent. We want your observations and insights on the who/what/when/where/why happening at the industry’s best event for tech professionals. Just be sure to include the #CLUS hashtag in everything you post. You don’t need to post on every social media channel – it’s the quality of what you post that matters!

But there’s more at stake than just the respect of your peers. Your crack reporting offers the winner some great freebies for the next Cisco Live including:

  • A 4-hour lab or tech session
  • An 8-hour lab or tech session
  • A Full Conference Pass

Sharing is good – and it can be rewarding. So, sharpen your pencil (or charge up your phone) and get ready to report on your Cisco Live experience.

Official Rules
