IF WE Dreams: Chance to Win $15,000

July 4th, 2012 by  

Here’s a fun guest post. Good luck to you if you enter! And happy 4th of July!

“IF WE harvest icebergs, just one could provide half a million people with fresh water for a year.” There are parts of the world where economic growth is limited due to limited access to fresh drinking water. Georges Mougin once dreamed of harvesting icebergs to help address this challenge, and with the power of 3DEXPERIENCE, he was given the opportunity to prove that his dream could become reality.

Dassault Systèmes (3DS) is launching a social conversation contest to stimulate the most innovative, ambitious and awesome “IF WE Dreams.” The winners will be rewarded with prize values up to $15,000 to bring their dreams to life.

How to participate?

World-changing “IF WE” Dreams are shared by composing a 140-character statement starting with the words “#IFWE” (e.g., “#IFWE harvest icebergs, just one could provide half a million people with fresh water for a year”).

Where can “IF WE Dreams” be shared?

“IF WE Dreams” will be collected on various social media platforms:

  • On 3DS’ website
  • On 3DS’ Facebook pages
  • On 3DS’ blogs
  • On Twitter with a tweet that starts with the #IFWE hashtag
  • On every partner’s blog, website, Facebook page, etc. via our Dialog App

The three best “IF WE Dreams” will be selected by a Jury composed of day-dreamers revealed by 3DS’ Passion for Innovation program, and 3DS’ experts in design, sustainability, and digital experiences. The Jury will evaluate and pick the winning proposals on the basis of originality, feasibility, as well as fit with sustainable development. The following prizes will be awarded:

First prize (best IFWE Dream)

  • A trip to the 3DS Campus of your choice (3DS Vélizy Campus or 3DS Boston Campus), including airfare & accommodations
  • One Lenovo Thinkpad W520 laptop computer with selected 3DS software
  • Five days of training (CATIA Fundamentals or equivalent)

Second and third prize

  • One Lenovo Thinkpad W520 laptop computer with selected 3DS software

Also, the first 100 people to submit an “IF WE Dream” will receive a complimentary “Iceberg Project” DVD & Blu-ray Disc bundle!

All “IF WE” Dreams are synchronized in a single discussion: users posting “IF WE” Dreams from a given website or social media platform can see “IF WE” Dreams posted from everywhere.
