Has anyone here participated in Imagineering's ImagiNations competition before?

Any pieces of advice? What did you think of the experience?

This sounds A-MAZING!! I read a little about it, and from what I can gather, I THINK you have to currently be enrolled in high school or college to participate -- anyone know otherwise? Formally this takes me out of the running, but I'd love to get involved if I'm incorrect in my assumptions.

You know matt, I was looking into this a while back and there is no clear rule on whether or not you have to be enrolled in school to enter. Or at least there wasnt when I looked at it. It did mention you had to be involved in an industry organization/job and so do the other members of your team, so there may be a way around having to be in school. It would be a cool opportunity though, a good chance to show off your skills.

Really? OK, well then I definitely have to take a second look at it.

Not me. We found out that you have to be either currently enrolled in college or have just graduated so I was out of luck. I figured I would just get em in the real world!

I just found out my team made it to the Semi-Final round.

I have to wait 2 more long weeks before I'll know if I get to go to WDI.

Hope all goes well.

I am not allowed to participate since I have worked for Disney in the theme parks. Bummer.

If you get to the top don't forget your friends back here Wink

Wow congrats Jason. I didnt realize you were actually in the competition, I just thought you were wondering if anyone else was! Best of luck to your team, can you talk about your project or is that confidential right now?

Wow, congrats to those folks...but I hope that the VR world isnt where everything is headed. The write-up wasnt very descriptive and from that, the project didnt sound very exciting to me...but i cant make criticism without seeing it first hand i guess. What do you all think?

I know what I think, and that's these boards are DEAD lately! I guess everyone is too busy enjoying summer....or working like some of us!
