Let's Get Real for $15,000

We got a nice note and picture (above) from Kristi Rieger at Genesys telling us that "in the spirit of the World Cup, knowing that face painting has now become the norm, we wanted to be sure that Conferencing News knows that our team's colors are blue and silver." ...Well, thank you, Kristi. We LOVE getting pics, especially of pretty, face-painted women propped for business and looking very, very happy. We can't tell if that's a happy Genesys Meeting Center customer or employee who's about to enjoy her weekend in the south of France, but we digress. And we did arch an eyebrow at the indicated color "silver" associated with the web and marketing materials, but we won't make a fuss.

Genesys is, of course, having fun by poking at WebEx fanatics, with their blue-and-green face painting, nothwithstanding Kristi's statement about how the World Cup has evidently made face painting the "norm." But it did make us think: Where's the authenticity?! As readers of this ridiculous blog know, we're all about authenticity. It was undoubtedly our founding editor, Bonnie, who got us off on the right start by placing a premium on authenticity. What we're trying to say is, where's the AUTHENTICITY, the PASSION, the tattoo-like COMMITMENT, of using real face-paint and not Photoshopping a stock-photo picture to give the illusion of face-paint? Take a look at the Genesys pic - this is not face-paint - that's Photoshop. And that's not a real Genesys person - that's a stock photo model. Where is the real paint? Where is the real person?

Enough of this Photoshop crap. Here's the deal: Show us and our end-user readers of conferencing some passion and committment to your conferencing company. We are offering a free advertising package on Conferencing News that equals $15,000 to the company that sends us the best picture of a REAL face-painted employee in a zany, creative setting. We want real face paint on real people. The contest ends later this summer when we get a simply outstanding, real, and passionate picture that we think rocks! Send your pics to this email address: editors at conferencing news dot com!
