The Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) will hold its annual gathering of IT and EdTech independent school leaders on April 15-18, 2018, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Crystal City, Virginia.

ATLIS Photo Portal
This year, we’re excited to launch a Vidigami portal dedicated to ATLIS. That’s right! Throughout the event, all photos and videos from keynote speeches, sessions, and various activities will be captured and made available to all attendees. If you’re participating this year, all you need to do is 3 things:
- Make sure to download the Vidigami mobile app
- Keep an eye out for your Vidigami invitation, so you can activate your account
- Come get a fantastic portrait photo taken by our team at the Vidigami table (27) in the Foyer/Exhibit Area. Not only will you get a free digital copy of your portrait (time for a new Linkedin photo?), but the image will also be used to centralize photos and videos you are a part of during ATLIS, so that you get a personalized feed from the event.
There’s more…Vidigami is all about sourcing great content from your community. We have some great contests lined up to get everyone excited about sharing memories from ATLIS. If you’ve got your smartphone handy (we’re positive you will!), you can participate by just uploading your best content, a selfie, or a big smile for the on-site photography team to win something special.
1 – Best Smiles
Say Cheese! This one is for the best smiles uploaded to Vidigami. Put on your best for the camera crew, or send in a selfie to win.
2 – Top Uploader
Show some love and share your content using the web or mobile app. Just add your photos (or short video clips) to your groups in Vidigami by selecting ‘Upload’. User with most uploads wins. It’s easy!
3 – ATLIS BFFS
A great chance to connect with new members and break the ice. Find an ATLIS Board Member and see if you can get a great photo with them. Member with the most photos takes home a prize.
