100 Google I/O tickets to be won
100 Google I/O tickets to be won
Thursday, 10 March 2011

Google has announced Last Call for Google I/O, a contest offering 100 chances to win tickets to attend the now-sold-out Google I/O 2011.

As we commented in February Google I/O 2011 sold out in under an hour and given that tickets were just short of $500 this is evidence of real commitment and enthusiasm.

Many would-be attendees were no doubt disappointed but there is still a chance to be at this year's most coveted event - by winning a free place!

You will then have a little over 20hrs to complete Round II. 

You can enter in multiple challenges but only one submission is allowed for each and they are for individuals - no teams are allowed.  Winners will be announced on April 4.
