EFF is pleased to announce our Second Annual DEF CON Getaway Contest! We are proud to support the information security community and want our strongest supporters to enjoy DEF CON 19 in style.

Here's how it works. Register for the DEF CON Getaway Contest and receive a personalized referral link to send your friends and family. (Registration is free; please don’t spam.) If your invitees become EFF members, you will be credited with the amount they donate through the link. The contestant to raise the most money for EFF between now and July 5, 2011, will win the Grand Prize Package:

  • Two DEF CON 19 Human badges;
  • A standard suite at the Rio Hotel and Casino for the nights of August 4-6;

You can join with others to form a fundraising team, but will have to divide the bounty.
