SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Prezi, the zooming presentation software that has liberated the world from boring, static presentations, announced the Ideas Matter Contest today in partnership with like-minded organization TED. Prezi and TED (the nonprofit sponsor of presentations and conferences around Technology, Education, and Design) have joined forces to unite Prezi's commitment to the proliferation of big ideas with TED's platform to showcase "ideas worth spreading." The contest calls upon the global Prezi community to create a prezi inspired by one of five notable TED presentations, including critically acclaimed author of "Eat Pray Love", Elizabeth Gilbert, world renowned spoken word poet and founder of Project V.O.I.C.E., Sarah Kay and New York Times bestselling author, Chip Conley. Winning prezis will be featured on the TED blog and promoted by TED Curator Chris Anderson via social media channels.

To promote their submission and win the popular vote, entrants are encouraged to tweet @Prezi using the hashtag #ideasmatter. Ten finalists, two for each talk, will be determined based on popular vote and a Prezi judging panel.
