Click the "compose" (paper/pen) image at top right in this section to post a message or photo, check in at a session, and share your activities on your social media sites. You can also comment on other attendees' posts and remarks, and stay engaged throughout the event! *

The AFP Leaderboard Challenge!
Are you the Leader of the Pack? Get ready—we will once again have The AFP Leaderboard Challenge during AFP ICON VIRTUAL! This is a simple points accumulation game using the features of the app. The more you use it and do things such as posting to the live feed, checking into sessions, adding photos to the stream, commenting on other attendees' posts and check-ins, etc., the more points you earn. Be sure to check the "App Points Leaders" link to see the standings. At the end of the conference, the top 5 points-getters will be entered into a drawing for not just Cool Points, but actual Cool Prizes!
Please Note: The AFP Leaderboard Challenge will officially begin at 9 am EST Friday (March 27) and conclude at 6:00 pm EST Tuesday (March 31)! What does that mean? Simply that while you may (and are encouraged to!) participate and post pictures and comments on the app leading up to (and after) that timeframe, there will be no points awarded for these actions (only initial points for setting up your app profile).
BUT WAIT - THERE'S MORE! In addition to the Top 5 points-getters, the AFPeeps and AFP staff will also select 1 additional app user at the end of VIRTUAL to enter into the drawing based solely on the quality of his or her postings and engagement with the app community. Points smoints - if you're good, you're good, and we'll notice! Power to the (more) Peep-le! Each one of these 6 folks in the drawing will wind up with a prize! Again, we will announce the Top 5 points-getters and the 1 Special Power Peep once VIRTUAL closes, with the drawing soon after. Winners will then be notified and announced.
Best of luck, all!
