IIUG is running a video contest!

The videos should illustrate Informix Dynamic Server in action. IIUG will display the videos on IIUG.TV. Videos can be informative, fun, hilarious, sad or dramatic, but please do not hurt any animals or databases in the shooting!

You can pick your genre; anime, interview, Western... and pick any location; street-talk, dark data center, Paris' catacombs, Stuart's house (I can give the address if you need it)!

If you need inspiration, visit IIUG.TV or YouTube (Informix search).

IIUG will give away two passes to our 2009 Conference — this is a value of over $1000 per winner! We will announce results during the Annual IIUG General Meeting (AGM) at the 2008 IIUG Conference.
