In celebration of User Generated Content we will have a Mediacasting Contest during the PLE Conference 2010 with awards for the best three mediacast productions on Personal Learning Environments.

The contest is open to all registered participants, who can create their own mediacasts, such as vodcasts (video productions) or screencasts (mixed media productions) of three minutes or less sharing their ideas, reflections and applications of personal learning environments and best suggestions for creating such environments for individuals, groups and communities.

All mediacasts must be uploaded to our YouTube Group *by June 10, 2010*. On June 11, 2010, we will start an open voting. The voting will end on July 2, 2010. The winners will be announced and awarded during the PLE conference.
