Ottawa (February 20, 2008) - One of the most common reasons given for keeping a messy office is that the owner is "too busy" to take time to clean their workspace - also known as "the pigsty" to their fellow workers. Whether that's true or just an excuse to avoid digging through the piled high papers, old pizza boxes from last week's brainstorming session, and/or bulky, antiquated gadgets that have no real purpose anymore, the time has come for action. MyFax, one of the leading Internet fax services, today issued its last call for entries in the MyFax Messy Office Contest. The company is calling on all last-minute packrats to submit a photo or video of their messy workspace this week to www.messyofficecontest.com, for a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize.
Over the past four weeks, the MyFax "messperts" have been busy choosing finalists to compete for the $10,000 grand prize and runner-up prizes totaling $5,000. February 25, 2008 marks the last day to enter.
"We've received a lot of great entries, but we know there are still some who have been sandbagging until the last week so they can get a good look at the competition," said Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus IP Solutions, the provider of MyFax Internet fax services. "The last week is now here. It's time to dig out the camera from wherever it's currently buried and show the world that you don't care what society says about being neat and organized."
Eight finalists have already been chosen to compete for the grand prize. After two more are selected during this final week, all 10 of the weekly winners will have a chance at the $10,000 in an online poll, where the voting will be left to the public. MyFax urges all to have fun with the contest either by entering, voting on the finalists or even holding an inner-messy-office contest. Then photograph or video the collage of office messes and submit it to win the $10,000 MyFax Messy Office Contest for a chance at the grand prize.
Contest results will be announced by March 5, 2008. For complete contest rules, visit www.messyofficecontest.com. The Messy Office Contest rules as explained by I.S. Melfunny can also be found on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogljc1rHACw.
