LearnIntroducing The FOWD Factor…

writes on March 13, 2012

This year, we’re offering four Future of Web Design London attendees an incredible opportunity – entry to the first ever FOWD Factor! Go head-to-head on the main stage with a 5-minute web design talk to win a place as a Rising Star speaker at FOWD NYC. The crowd will be voting for the speaker who wows them the most in that short space of time – and we’ll be flying the winner out to the Big Apple to deliver an extended talk this autumn.

The contest is open to everyone attending FOWD London. All you have to do is email Cat with your pitch for the fast and furious session you’d like to deliver. As ever, we’re looking for the talks that will be most interesting and valuable to our web designer crowd – whether you’re sharing short cuts, front-end tips, business advice or your thoughts on the future of our industry, let us know. We’ll select the final four and then FOWD attendees will decide the winner, live at the show itself.

Pitches can be submitted in writing, or if you’re feeling creative, feel free to make a video etc. The deadline is April 11th, and finalists will be notified shortly after the closing date. Good luck everyone!

    If I was going to this years FOWD I would be so up for this. 5 minutes is a challenge to captivate an audience, on the plus side at least it wouldn’t get boring. The head to head competitive aspect is the best part.

    Good luck to all the folks participating 🙂
