Blogger Convention Announces Design Contest

This just in via email:
Blogging Man 2007 (www.bloggingman.org) today announced a National blog design contest and welcomed talented designers from all 50 states to enter the competition.

"Blogging Man 2007", a project of Quicksilver Strategies, LLC (www.quicksilver-strategies.com ), is a gathering of more than 4,000 political bloggers scheduled to take place in October of 2007. The convention and expo will be held in Reno, Nevada at John Ascuaga's Nugget Resort Hotel and Casino (www.janugget.com).

Event organizers hope that this design contest will entice additional opinion writers and new media activists to get more involved in the project, while also providing them with a unique and state of the art blog design.

"'Blogging Man 2007' was founded with a vision of helping the blogosphere evolve to a new level of awareness and effectiveness." Said Eric Odom, convention chairman, "And we feel strongly that it should be something the grass-roots blogging community itself takes ownership of and has an opportunity to play a significant role in getting off the ground.... It truly will be an event developed by the little guy, for the little guy."

The contest will officially open on June 19th, 2006 and the winning designer, to be announced on October 1st, 2006, will be awarded free airfare, lodging, and VIP event access to the "Blogging Man 2007" Convention and Expo.

All, interested designers are required to fill out a contestant form located on the event website (www.bloggingman.org ). Applications for the contest must be received by July 1st, 2006 and completed designs submitted by September 1st, 2006.
This is being billed as a conservative political blogger event. I checked out the speaker's list and the only name that really stuck out at me was Hugh Hewitt...but its still pretty early yet.

Pamela (same day as Hugh) owns the Atlas Shrugs blog, which I like BTW. Adam Graham and Evan Maloney are names that ring a bell, but I don't know who they are.
