The Agile Professional ‘Snap & Win’ Contest, Presented by SLA and Factiva

Are you a masterful multitasker? An agile analyst? A limber librarian? You could win $1,000 when you prove it with a photo!

SLA members have always shown professional agility, through the diverse sessions produced for SLA's Annual Conference, the endless variety of roles filled and goals accomplished, and the success stories we hear all the time. To celebrate that agility, we're teaming up with SLA 2012 Platinum Partner Dow Jones & Company to launch The Agile Professional Snap & Win Contest on May 14.

The Scoop

For this contest, we’re asking you to submit a photo of yourself being professionally AGILE, adaptive, and flexible.

Perhaps your photo shows you filling a role at work that’s considered nontraditional. Maybe you’re leading a seminar or teaching colleagues how to use the latest, greatest feature of a search tool. Or, if you take the title at its literal meaning, the photo shows you doing yoga while reading your Kindle and dodging bullets. OK, so the last one is a stretch.

Use any editing tools you like (e.g., Instagram), or scan a Polaroid and upload it directly to SLA’s Facebook Page. It’s completely up to you!


Enter the contest through SLA’s Facebook Page anytime between May 14 and June 11. You can also enter through Twitter, by tweeting your photo and including #Snap2Win.

The Grand Prize Winner will be decided in late June, and his or her photo will be shared at the SLA 2012 Welcome Reception.

The Prizes

The Grand Prize Winner will receive $1,000 cash and a free year of SLA membership. The winning entry will be selected by our esteemed judges. All entrants will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites between June 14 and June 27.

Stay tuned for the official contest rules, which will be delivered to you on May 14. As always, let us know if you have any questions or feedback. And a special thanks to Dow Jones for making the contest possible and for all of their tremendous support of the upcoming SLA 2012 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO in Chicago, 15-18 July!
