There are HOW MANY prizes this year for wearing your C.U.L.T. Shirt?

Count 'em baby -- FOUR prizes this year! Oh, and the prizes don't suck at all. Each is worth at least $100 US.

We've given away a prize each year at the Wednesday night party to some random, unsuspecting person who happens to be wearing a C.U.L.T. shirt. This year we're not just going to top that, we're going to blow it out of the water.

The four prize giveaways are as follows:

Prize Number 1 - To be given out as usual at the Wednesday night party. At a secretly chosen time, our super under-cover spotter will look around and identify someone nearby who's wearing their C.U.L.T. Shirt, and that person will be given a prize.

Prize Number 2 - To be given out just before the Thursday afternoon Closing Session. We'll come up with some kind of crazy formula for this too. It may happen in line to get in. It may happen as we're all filing in. It may happen once you're seated in a predetermined seat. The only way to have a chance at it, is to wear your C.U.L.T. shirt to that session.

Obviously there's a minor issue here. If you're all going to wear your shirts on Wednesday night, then wear them again on Thursday afternoon -- some of you are going to start to smell bad. HA! You'll just have to pick the right time to wear your C.U.L.T. colors and take your chances becoming a social pariah! Of course, many of you are quite used to that already.

Prize Number 3 - This will be a PHOTO contest of sorts. To be awarded about 1 week AFTER Lotusphere. The prize will be awarded to the best (in the opinion of Rocky and I) candid C.U.L.T. picture. To win, you have to take a picture of someone or many people wearing their C.U.L.T. shirts and mail it in. We'll post the email address here when the time comes. This must be a candid shot. No photoshopping and no staged pictures for this one. The actual quality of the photo makes no difference other than as it will impact the overall impression of the picture.

Prize Number 4 - This will be also be a PHOTO contest of sorts. It will also be awarded about 1 week AFTER Lotusphere. This one can be staged, but cannot be edited or Photoshopped. You can be the star of the picture, or you can take it of someone else. The person who sends it in will be awarded the prize. What's the criteria? It must be totally "Off The Hook". To win this one you need to grab our attention and make us laugh, gape, or otherwise simply stand slack-jawed at your masterpiece. Whatever crazy thing you can come up with that involves at least one person and at least one C.U.L.T. shirt is fair game.

* Note 1: Don't even THINK of trying to use Photoshop to edit your pictures before sending them in. We will find out. We may even get Chloe from the C.T.U. to check them for us and them send them over to the people at C.S.I. for even more magic. Don't even think of trying this one.

* Note 2: For the pictures in the contest, we will provide a total of four email addresses to send the pictures. One pair for each contest that includes a "Regular" address and a special one for any that might be "NSFW" (look it up).

Good Luck Out There!
