Some of the most important organizations in the ITIL community have come together to launch the first Global ITIL Video Contest. The IT Infrastructure Library® (ITIL®) is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management in the world and the contest invites ITIL practitioners to create short videos demonstrating how “ITIL Makes Life Better.”
“This contest is a wonderful opportunity to document the creativity and imagination of the world’s IT Service Management professionals. This is like a Global Talent Show with everyone putting their best foot forward for ITIL!” said Omnikron President Robin Borough, one of the contest’s judges.
- Videos will be judged on how well they showcase how ITIL has improved their projects or processes.
- Creative submissions are encouraged; contestants can enter songs, poems, skits or cartoons to describe the effects ITIL has had on their projects.
The contest is sponsored by Omnikron, AXELOS, IT Governance, ITSMF, and ServiceNow.
- A trip of the winner’s choice valued at £4,000 ($6,000)
- Copies of the ITIL Lifecycle Publication Suite
- A choice of up to three Omnikron ITIL Certification Courses
- Lifetime membership in itSMF
- A range of gadgets
Peter Hepworth, the CEO of AXELOS, commented: “This competition is all about providing a platform to showcase the success stories of individuals and teams who have successfully implemented ITIL. Not only will it serve as an inspiration to others on how best they can adopt ITIL but also allows us to acknowledge and reward the shining examples of best practice and give the people and teams delivering superior service management the credit they deserve.”
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, remarked: “This contest is a great injection of fun into the industry. It’s a great opportunity for ITSM professionals to spread the word of ITIL while showcasing their hidden talents – and the prizes are fantastic.”
Entries will be accepted through mid-October. The videos will be judged on a mixture of creativity, entrants’ passion for ITIL and the number of votes the video receives.
Judges include Peter Hepworth from AXELOS, Robin Borough from Omnikron, Alan Calder from IT Governance, Cathy Kirch from itSMF USA and Chris Pope from ServiceNow.
