Afilias Launches Hunt for Ads featuring .INFO domains

Almost nine years since .INFO first appeared on the Internet, registry operator Afilias is giving Internet users an incentive to search out and send in .INFO sites used in advertising. In its month-long contest called ".INFO Spotting," Internet users who find and share photographs of these .INFO sites in action can enter to win one of this year's hottest commodities — an iPad 16INFO contestGB.

".INFO has long established itself as a useful and intuitive domain, as shown by the millions of live sites in use around the globe and the growing use of .INFO addresses in advertising of all sorts. To highlight the use of .INFO, Afilias is putting out the call for the Internet public to help us recognize the wonderfully creative work that .INFO site owners are doing to promote themselves," said Roland LaPlante, Chief Marketing Officer for Afilias.

All entries to the .INFO Spotting contest must be submitted exclusively via Facebook, by posting the photo to the .INFO fan page located at http://www.facebook.com/dotINFO. The winner of the .INFO Spotting contest will be selected by Afilias based on the best capture of a .INFO domain in use in print, electronic or outdoor advertising, such as online banners, magazine ads, or billboards. Each entered photograph will be judged on (a) the validity of the subject as an advertisement or marketing message using a .INFO address, (b) the legibility and clarity of the photograph, and (c) how well it captures the spirit of the advertisement.

"Whether you are an expert or amateur photographer, you should get your camera or camera phone ready. You never know where or when you'll come across a great .INFO domain advertised, and it could be your chance to get one of the most coveted tech toys this year," added LaPlante.

The .INFO Spotting contest opened on May 5, 2010 and runs through May 31, 2010. For more information and the rules of the program please visit http://www.info.info/node/685. To submit your entry for the .INFO Spotting Contest, please visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/dotINFO.
