Write a blog. Win the prize.


Want to win a Full Conference Pass to Cisco Live 2020, a free lab or technical session at Cisco Live 2020, or front row seating at the keynotes in San Diego – just for blogging about Cisco Live? We have the contest for you. Cisco Live is always a hot topic in the tech universe – and we want to see whose blog post about Cisco Live draws the most attention. We’ll provide the tracking URL, you provide the content and the clicks.


The Details


To be eligible for the contest, your blog post needs to include a link to the Cisco Live website. Complete the form to get a tracking URL for that we’ll use to determine the winner of the contest.


The blog with the most registrations (or clicks, if there are no registrations) as of June 9th using the tracking URL provided will be the big winner. But let’s face it: anyone who attends Cisco Live is a winner.


Post your blog and let us know. Share a link on Twitter with the #CLUS tag to catch everyone’s attention. You can also send the blog link to and we will be sure to monitor it. We may even promote your blog through our social channels and on our website (think how proud your parents will be!).


We will select our favorite quarterly blog winner who will receive a gift approximately valued at $50.


Good luck, and may the best blogger win.

#CLUS Correspondent


The Cisco Live Team Wants to Reward You for Your Reporting Skills.


Do you have a nose for news and a way with words? If so, you have what it takes to be a Cisco Live correspondent – and your tweeting, blogging, captioning, and Facebooking could earn you prizes!


Just before, during, and right after Cisco Live 2018, the #CLUS social media team will be monitoring the social media and online content that attendees share to see who is worthy of being recognized as a Cisco Live Correspondent. We want your observations and insights on the who/what/when/where/why happening at the industry’s best event for tech professionals. Just be sure to include the #CLUS hashtag in everything you post. You don’t need to post on every social media channel – it’s the quality of what you post that matters!

Enter our Facebook Caption Contest

Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. We just want a few.

Participate in the Cisco Live photo caption contest by providing your most creative caption to our posted photo each Monday — and you could win an OGIO Bolt Backpack (a Cisco Store best seller) with its lifetime guarantee. Weekly winners receive a Cisco mini-fig.

Photos from previous Cisco Live events will be featured. Chime in with your caption, and you could be a winner.

How does it work?

Each Monday from 23 April through 22 May we will post a photo on the Cisco Live Facebook Fan page and ask you and other members of the Cisco Live community to give us a caption. The photo caption with the most “Likes” 48 hours after the photo is posted will be the weekly winner.


Get the Cisco Live spirit early and have some fun with these photos. The more creative your caption, the better. And don’t forget to vote for your favorites!


Four winners will receive mini-figs from the Cisco Store. One grand-prize winner will receive OGIO Bolt Backpack. We will contact each winner with details. If the winners are not attending Cisco Live 2018 in Orlando, their prize will be mailed.


To be eligible to win the Facebook Caption Contest you must live in the United States or be attending Cisco Live US 2018 in Orlando.
