We want you to have an opportunity to demonstrate your skills, not to us - to the sponsors (your potential new employer).
Send us a piece of work that you have achieved in the last year - something that you are proud of and you think would make a prospective employer very interested in talking to you.
We will pass your submissions directly to the sponsors so that they get to see all of them. Your submission may interest a sponsor even if you don't win and sponsors are always looking for talent.
Prizes will include upgrading your ticket to Professional (which means attending the Professional Delegates Networking Session and the Penguin Dinner) and possibly hardware prizes.
Note: We know that this will be something that you have worked very hard on, so it will be treated with care and your copyright will be respected.
