If it doesn't look like a trip to Vegas is in the cards this year (ha ha), maybe it's time to get out your video camera!
Autodesk University is sponsoring a YouTube contest and giving away 3 all-inclusive passes to AU 2009. (Looks like you'd still be on your own for airfare, but everything else is covered...hotel, meals, etc.)
The basic idea is to watch a YouTube video about reasons people go to AU, and then post your own video response telling everyone why you want to come to AU.
Finalists will be determined by number of YouTube viewings, and the final round of voting will be done through the AU Facebook page.
For all the details, including eligibility (open only to residents of the US and Canada, with some geographical exceptions), click here.
I'm definitely looking forward to watching the entries -- hope to see some of you in Vegas!
