Holy cow, holy cow, followed by holy cow. If this contest were a Scorpions song, it would be “here I am, rock you in quite the same fashion as that of a hurricane.” I have received some outstanding news, people – news that affects this contest for the positive!
Some of the industry’s most future conscious companies have stepped up and offered some additional funds for the JimOnLight.com Fall Scholarship Contest – which means I’m able to offer MORE PRIZE MONEY for the winner! Also, something that rocks pretty hard, I am now able to offer a RUNNER UP prize!
The web’s favorite fox, the Fantastic David Fox from the lighting team at KA in Las Vegas, Larry Zoll and the great people over at Zero88, and the monumentally awesome team over at SeaChanger have offered some funds to boost the prizes! Now, I am able to give a $1000 first place prize (and two tickets to see KA in Las Vegas, good for one year through Mr. Fox) and a $500 Runner Up prize, which ALSO features two tickets to KA, good for one year!
UPDATE: 4Wall Entertainment has just contributed $250 to the pot, making the first prize $1000 USD! 4Wall is also giving ALL OF THE WINNERS a 4Wall t-shirt! Everyone who entered wins!
UPDATE: Rick and Adri at InLight Gobos has contributed $250 to the contest pool – now I can offer a Second Runner Up prize of $250!
The outpouring of support that I have gotten for you excellent contest participants from the lighting industry is enough to make me choke up a bit. This is why I love our lighting industries – because they care about our future.
