Startup awards ask tech community to retweet their favorite awards category logos to win one of the exclusive Tech Trailblazers t-shirts
LONDON, UK: The Tech Trailblazers Awards this week launched a Twitter campaign called #TTAwards #blazingTshirts to give followers the chance to win a limited-edition Tech Trailblazers Awards t-shirt. The tech community on Twitter will be asked to retweet the @techtrailblaze tweets of their favorite category logos. The winners will be drawn randomly after the competition closes at 23:59pm Pacific on September 12th (the same time as the awards submissions close). The contest begins today, so participants should follow the Tech Trailblazers Awards on Twitter now at http://www.twitter.com/techtrailblaze.
Founder and Chief Trailblazer Rose Ross commented: “There is a great fondness in the tech world for the humble t-shirt, and so we decided to make some cool ones for our judges. For a bit of fun Twitter buzz, we thought we’d launch a competition: #BlazingTshirts to get everyone in the mood for voting later in the year and to see which is the favorite icon from our nine categories. Our judges will share their favourites too. But they won’t be eligible for the competition, because they get a t-shirt anyway!”
The Tech Trailblazers Awards celebrate and reward innovation in the following enterprise IT areas: big data, cloud, emerging markets, mobile technology, networking, IT security, data storage, sustainable IT and virtualization.
