TMO Contest: Get Your Beatnik On, Win Macworld Expo Passes

The Mac Observer wants to get you into Macworld Expo 2011 in San Francisco, but we’ll need a little something in return. Send us an original haiku by January 3, and if we like yours best you’ll win a Conference Super Pass valued at US$870. Two lucky poets will also walk away with a Users Conference pass worth $475.

Here are the rules:

  • Your haiku must be original.
  • You can submit as many haiku as you want, and it doesn’t cost anything to enter.
  • Your haiku can be on any topic, but any that relate to TMO, the Mac, Macworld Expo, or anything else Apple-related are more likely to catch our eye.
  • All entries will be judged by the TMO staff, and we have the final say on who wins.
  • Winners are responsible for their own travel expenses and other costs. Sorry, we aren’t picking up the bill for your whole trip.
  • Winners will be notified on via email and on the TMO Web site.
  • Send your submissions to

A haiku is a poem made up of three phrases with five, seven, and five syllables respectively. Here’s an example:
Learn about Mac Stuff
Cool sessions and parties too
Need my Macworld fix

The Conference Super Pass includes the Workshop session of your choice, access to the Feature Presentations, access to all User Conference sessions, and access to the Expo Hall. Users Conference passes include all sessions in the Users Conference, along with access to the Feature Presentations and Expo Hall.

Macworld Expo runs from January 26 through January 29, 2011, at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. For additional information about the Expo and events, visit the Macworld Expo Web site.
