Contest: Win a Wacom Intuos 4!

Hey readers! Wanna win a pen tablet? How about a brand new Wacom Intuos 4? We use them a lot at Go Media, in fact we have produced tutorials about how we use them. We want to help promote WMC Fest this weekend and thought it’d be fun to run a contest through our new rewards system called PunchTab.

To enter, it’s really easy. All you got to do is to follow the instructions on the widget below. Not only will it enter you in the contest, but you’ll be helping us get the word out about WMC Fest this weekend. It’s easy. You can win this awesome tablet donated by PunchTab.

The prize

You can win a brand new Wacom Intuos 4. I’m guessing I don’t have to convince you that it would be a great tool for a designer. Look at it:

We’re really glad to be able to offer this to a lucky winner in exchange of a major push from you guys to help the WMC Fest‘s attendance to explode. “Bonne chance” (good luck) as they say in France, and I hope I’ll see you this weekend!

    Jeff, not to be a homer, but I’m really looking forward to hearing what you have to say at WMC Fest this year!

      thanks I don’t feel like what I’ll say will be all that profound, but thanks!!

    I live all the way in NJ so I won’t be able to attend WMC Fest. I think it’d be rad as my company produces a lot of festivals and events and it’s always cool to see what other people are doing and come up with ideas of how to improve our own. But if I could go, I’d like to just meet Jeff Finley and thank him and the rest of the GoMedia crew for all the work they’ve done and inspiration they’ve provided over the years.
