Time Frame

Competition closes 31 August 2012.
Winners announced 15 September 2012.


All online members of the CIS Facebook page can participate. If one is not our Facebook fan, he/she can simply visit our Facebook page ( to join. Entries will be limited to one per person. We will only consider the first submission from each participant; any subsequent submissions from the same person will not be considered. Each entry needs to include two elements:
  1. The CIS logo and
  2. The participant's face (for tagging purpose).


For judging, the participants whose photos have the top three highest numbers of "like" on Facebook are the winners. We reserve the right to remove any photos considered inappropriate for the contest e.g., abusive, illegal.


We will offer free IEEE CIS membership of 2013 for the three winners. We reserve the right to offer less than three prizes in this contest. We will also issue certificates to the winners. Note: This prize does not cover standard membership fees for IEEE, just the IEEE CIS.


  1. Each participant may submit at most one entry to the contest.
  2. Each photo must contain the face of the participant and the CIS logo.
  3. If more than one participant are in the photo, the person who does the submission is deemed the participant. In this case, the participant should resolve the ownership issue of the photo before submission and should also obtain permission from the others that are pictured to post the photo on Facebook and other media.


Copyright issues must be resolved by the participant before submitting the entry. The participant needs to declare no copyrighted materials (except the CIS logo) are incorporated into the photo. He/she is required to give the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society the free rights to use the photo at no additional cost.
