iSpring Championship – Winter 2023 Guidelines
Hey there, iSpringers!
We are pleased to announce the Winter 2023 iSpring Championship, a contest to select the best online courses created with iSpring Suite Max. If you’re ready to show off your fantastic authoring skills, feel free to enter to win!
Regardless of whether you’re an experienced instructional designer or just starting out in eLearning, enter your work and see how you stack up against your peers. You can submit your work from January 23 to February 28. The winners will be announced on April 4.
How it works:
Write “I’m in!” in the comment section below this post. We’ll contact you and provide you with login details to your iSpring Suite Max account (we’ll give you a fully functioning license for free for the duration of the championship). Then you’ll create a course following the guidelines. We’ll then share it in the iSpring Championship category of the Community Forum. And all that’s left to do is wait for the judges and community members to select the winners!
Here are the prizes:
1st place — a 2-year iSpring Suite Max license
2nd place — a 1-year iSpring Suite Max license
3rd place — a 6-month iSpring Suite Max license
The work voted most popular by our Community Forum members will receive our special Audience Award — a 3-month iSpring Suite Max license and the video course “How to Create an Interactive Online Course” in its best PRO plan from the iSpring Academy.
Plus: all the winners (including the Audience Award) will get a 1-year Netflix subscription or a 1-year YouTube Premium subscription or a $150 Amazon gift card (the choice is yours)!
