Yeah, finally another Presentation contest, I’ve been waiting for one to pop up again (I hope Slideshare also has one again this summer!). Though you can somewhat see Pecha Kucha Nights as an informal (and fun!) contest. On their website it reads: “The PowerPoint Live Design Contest is open to anyone and everyone: your mission is to create the slide design that would be used for the conference template. If chosen, your design would be used in all of our seminar tracks by just about all of our presenting team.”
Go to the Presentation Live Web site to get more details.
The winning designs from the last years are as follows
This design is kept quite simple and the text is very harmonious. It’s very colorful, but the colors are not “strong” so they don’t compete with the content.
2007 was to have a New Orleans theme and I think this worked quite well. The 2007 Winner actually made 3 different title templates – a different one for each day.
Last year the winner had a “mash-up” of analog and digital. There were actually a variety of title slides to choose from. The “feel” is actually really different from the previous winner. This one is more sleek and cutting edge, while 2007 was more warm and subtle.
Maybe you?? Join the contest! I know I will.
The betterpresenting editorial has some more stuff on what they are looking for. Best of luck to you!
