Ever dreamed of going to MozCon and imagined yourself watching Dr. Pete’s talk, taking photos with Roger, and giving Rand a fist bump? Or maybe you’ve always gone to MozCon and just can’t budget it this year? Well, we have the opportunity of a lifetime for you!
This year, we’re thrilled to try something new and give our community members a chance to win an exclusive VIP MozCon experience! A free ticket to MozCon 2016 including optional VIP front row seating, accommodations (with suite upgrade) for the entire conference, airfare/transportation to Seattle, and shuttle service from Sea-Tac Airport to Olive 8 Hyatt. The whole shebang!
We’re asking you to put together a piece of content to tell us why we should send you to MozCon. We want your content to be original and creative!
First step: Create some awesome, compelling content.
Here’s a few content types that you can use:
A video (must be 1 minute or less): Get in front of the camera.
A blog post: Make the case using your brilliant writing skills.
A song: Are you musically gifted? Write and sing a song.
A photo album: Are you a visual person? This might be for you.
A drawing or painting: Perhaps you’re more inclined to draw it out.
A reenactment: You know you’ve always wanted to plaster on a Rand mustache and give some SEO advice.
These are just a few ideas. You’re more than welcome to combine the content types. Perhaps you’ll write a song and make a music video. This is your oyster, so don’t hold back — let your creative juices flow!
Second step: Submit!
Once your content is created, tweet us a link to your content @Moz and use the hashtag #mozcon by Sunday, May 29th at 5:00pm PDT. Be sure to follow these instructions in order for your submission to qualify. Don’t forget to add a contact email address easily visible within your content so we can reach you by email for next steps and/or communication.
Submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee at Moz. The first run-through will look at all submissions to make sure they qualify. The second run-through will be shared with all 200 Mozzers, and they’ll vote for their favorite entries. The one with the most votes wins the free trip to MozCon 2016.
Wait, don’t go yet! Be sure to read the nitty-gritty:
- Mozzers will judge entries based on creativity of content.

The winner is solely responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes related to the prizes and paying any expenses associated with any prize which are not specifically provided for in the official rules.
