Ira Sohn Investment Idea Contest

***Update: Be sure to check out our notes from the Ira Sohn Conference for 2011 where we're providing updates on the presentations from top hedge fund managers.

The legendary Ira Sohn Investment Conference in New York has a new twist this year. They are having an investment idea contest before the event to be judged by Seth Klarman, Michael Price, David Einhorn, Bill Ackman, and Joel Greenblatt. The winner gets to present their investment idea at the conference to 2,000 attendees later this month.

The judges are looking for the best investment idea with a one-year timeframe. You can learn more about the contest and submit your ideas here. Deadline for submissions is May 20th.

Here's the details of the conference:

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011
12:15 - 6pm
Rose Theater, 5th Floor, Frederick P. Rose Hall
Broadway at 60th Street, New York City
