One of the ways that I’ve been using PDF Portfolios in my own work is to combine recordings of my presentations with all of the supplementary documentation that I refer to throughout the presentation into a single PDF file. Take a look at my Enterprise Deployment Portfolio as an example.
Well… if you find that PDF Portfolio use case compelling and you’ve got an idea of how you might deliver your own presentations and supplementary material, why not try to win a prize for your efforts.
From now through September 14, SlideShare will host its third annual World’s Best Presentation Contest. As the contest sponsor, Adobe is introducing the Acrobat 9 PDF Portfolio subcategory to be judged by creative and business bloggers Scott Belsky (Behance), Julie Hansen (The Business Insider), and Harry McCracken (Technologizer).
Haven’t got Acrobat 9 Pro or Pro Extended? No problem, you can download a free 30 day trial version.
You can enter a PDF Portfolio into one of five categories: Business, Technology, Education, Creative/Offbeat, and Best Multimedia. Entrants who use Acrobat 9 are eligible for exciting prizes, with the grand prize of an HP TouchSmart laptop and Acrobat 9 Pro software.
Also, check out how the PDF Portfolios are being displayed in the browser. By allowing entrants to upload PDF portfolios during the contest for the first time, Adobe is providing users of the world’s largest presentation sharing site with a unique opportunity to use in-browser embedded sharing and viewing of PDF portfolios.
