Judging will be based on the same criteria that the Brainshark Customer Success team uses to provide presentation feedback to customers. Criteria include a clear and concise introduction, quality of the script, length of audio per slide, the table of contents, incorporating Brainshark features, slide visuals, use of animations, audio quality and presentation style, and the call to action.
The top three Brainsharks from each category will be recognized in our live online Sharkie Awards ceremony to be held on April 3, 2013. The winner in each category will receive a beautiful glass Sharkie trophy and be eligible for “Presentation of the Year” honors. The Presentation of the Year winner will receive a grand prize (such as a trip, team outing, iPads) valued at $2,000 in total. Second and third place finishers will also win valuable prizes valued at $1,000 and $500 respectively.
If the prize winners cannot accept gifts per company policy, their organization has the alternative options of having Brainshark make a donation to a charity in their honor or applying 2x the value of each prize towards Brainshark Professional Services.
Presentations must have been created between January 1, 2012 and February 8, 2013.
