The $1 billion question: you have till tomorrow...
Judging by today's incoming mail,. quite a few people have woken up to the fact that tomorrow is the closing date for this year's JIPLP competition. The details, which can also be found on the official JIPLP website, are reproduced below:
The $1 billion question
Enter our JIPLP competition for 2013 and you could win a year’s free subscription to JIPLP. All you have to do is send us your account of which 5 intellectual properties you would invest $1 billion in and why.
This should be a short piece of writing (between 500-600 words). It should explain who you are (contributor, board member, subscriber etc) and what 5 intellectual properties (or fewer) you would invest in if you were given $1 billion. Entries will be judged by the JIPLP team and prizes will be awarded for those entries demonstrating good financial acumen, for being creatively written, with style and panache and also for how humorous the piece is. The winning entries will be published on the JIPLP blog.
