.Org Registry Holding $5,000 Contest


According to a tweet this evening from the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the registry that manages .org domain names, there is a $5,000 contest I want to share with you. To enter the contest for a chance to win, let PIR know “how your .ORG site is making an impact.”

Submissions are already being accepted, and the submission deadline is March 31, 2014 by 11:59pm, Eastern Daylight Time in the US. Below is more information about how to create a submission to participate in the contest, as well as other pertinent information about the contest.

Of course, you should visit the  contest website for full details along with the contest rules, terms, and conditions.

Entries must describe via any of the following methods how your .org website has made a positive impact on the world and why you think you deserve to win $5,000:

  • A written description that explains why you chose to carry out your cause, idea or mission on .org.
  • A photo or series of images that illustrate the work your .org does.
  • A video or series of media or press clippings that highlight the work of your .org.
  • A blog, an essay, or a case study on your .org.
  • Your own creative submission that will get your .org story noticed! (e.g. a song, poem, cartoon, etc.)
  • Point us to your social media following so we can see how you mobilize your followers.

A panel of judges (to be selected) with experience in the fields of technology, causes, nonprofits, and impact shall select the single best submission from all entries.

Submissions will be judged on the following criteria: Creativity/Originality (33%); Quality of Submission (33%); and Fits the Theme of “Why I Chose .org” (34%). In the event of a tie, tied submissions will be re-judged on the basis of Fits the Theme of “Why I Chose .org” (100%).

The featured .org domain name and related website for each submission must not violate the .org Domain Name Abuse Policy.

Submissions containing or referring to content that is pornographic, illegal, or otherwise deemed by the panel in its sole discretion to be offensive will not be considered.
