Of course, everyone who attended walked away a winner with valuable information as well as new professional connectionsto to help their career and business. But we're talkin' freebies, gimmies, handouts! As usual there were lots of 'doorprizes' given away at this year's MediaProCamp. Everyone left with a little something, including a handy credit-card holder for the back of your mobile phone or something similar. But there were also some significant prizes distributed…
The grandaddy of all the doorprizes was a brand new GoPro Camera. Other major gifts were donated by Anne Ganguzza and Joe Nagle. Tim Keenan of Creative Media Recording donated gift cards from Chic-Fil-A and Starbucks and Brian Page of Vocal Images, donated movie tickets the latter two were also major sponsors of the event.
One lucky winner got a 'two-fer'! Voice-Over artist, Joe Nagle presented a $250 certificate for a free VO session from Joe's SpeakEasy, as he calls his company. That went to Nellie Reyes-Schwab of LaNelle Synergy Business Solutions. It was accompanied by a six-pak of Joe's SpeakEasy Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout, his home-brewed beer! The value of the beer? Priceless.
Anne Ganguzza, the founder of VO Peeps, donated a certificate for her webinar course, "So Smart Social Media" valued at $325. It's a longer version of the popular talk she gave at MediaProCamp. The lucky recipient was the aforementioned Joe Nagle. What goes around comes around!

And Pam Muldoon (Photo at left) split the 50-50 pot to take home $35. Not a bad return on a $5 ticket for Pam!
Finally, the big doorprize of the day was a brand new GoPro sports camera. Joe McDonald (Below) was the lucky recipient. He was quite thrilled to win it — especially since most of the crowd was hoping they would be the winner! Joe says he's got great plans for it!
The MediaProCamp MC's summed it up best: "It's a lot of fun to be the guy giving away all these free doorprizes…" said Brian Page. "But…" chimed in co-host Tim Keenan, " The real satisfaction on people's faces came from the fun of collaborating with other media pros and getting some great business advice during MediaProCamp."
