  • GFI’s Where Is MAX Contest

    Posted on September 9th, 2009 HandyAndy No comments

    Just got this note from my friend Dave at GFI about a new contest.



    Have you met MAX?

    MAX is GFI’s latest recruit, providing IT support providers, Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with an easy and affordable solution that will help them deliver a better service to their clients.


    Take MAX to Your World

    MAX loves meeting new clients and visiting different places and he’d love to visit your neck of the woods and beyond! By showing MAX around the first 100 participants will receive a GFI MAX T-shirt (one T-shirt per person, not per submission!) and one lucky person has the chance of winning a fantastic Sony VAIO netbook!


    How to Win

    Take photos of MAX at your favourite place/landmark, or in some interesting location using the image of MAX available on which you can print out. You can also:

    – draw/paint/illustrate MAX

    – use MAX in graphic design

    Email your photo to us on or upload the photo to a site. You can also add your photo link on Twitter tagging it with #gfi and addressing it to @GFISoftware.

    Comment on this blog post with a valid email address with the URL of where the picture is uploaded (if applicable).


    We will then upload it to the GFI MAX Around the World gallery*.


    Internal judging will take place to pick out the best GFI MAX Around the World submission that will win the grand prize – a great Sony VAIO netbook available in either brown, pink or white!**



    GFI MAX T-shirts –  guaranteed to the first 100 participants.  90 T-shirts now left for grabs!

    SONY VAIO Netbook – 1 WINNER!


    Where’s MAX – The Gallery

    Check out the online MAX Around the World Gallery to see where MAX has been! The gallery is being updated constantly with all the submissions so see what others are up to and submit your own!


    Rules and Deadline

    There is no limit as to how many entries you can submit. As always you can be as creative as you like but please stick to the basic rules of decency and morality. Any offensive images will not be uploaded or considered.


    The competition is going to run throughout the month of September 2009 so get snapping away for your chance to win a fantastic prize! The first 100 participants will each receive a GFI MAX T-shirt; however, all entries throughout September are eligible to win the netbook.



    * We must be able to save the image from the site where you upload the photo because we will need to upload it to our gallery. By entering the competition, you give us the rights to use your images on our website.
    ** Color choice subject to availability.
